A self-motivated, attentive and determined graduate of Seneca College constantly learning new material and looking to demonstrate my skills in a well-established organization.
I am a person who can be relied on to follow the rules, respect the laws and uphold the highest standards. I also take responsibility in the tasks which I am given and ensure that they are completed on-time while being attentive to detail. Lastly, I have the required patience and perseverance to get just about any task done even if additional time is required in order to ensure that the proper procedures and guidelines have been followed.
Having completed three co-op terms in two different firmly established companies over the span of 2 years, I have acquired both technical and soft skills that will help me excel in an organization by effectively applying them to solve problems and make the right decisions. I possess a sharp eye for detail, which I use to find even the smallest errors in text. I work well under pressure and can produce high-quality work in short periods of time. I have strong interpersonal skills and work with a wide variety of people.
