As a hardworking, honest and conscientious person I believe I would be an asset to any company.  My strengths lie in my ability to quickly learn procedures, technologies and from fellow co-workers and superiors. Good communication skills and ability to work as part of a team are also qualities I possess. My experience gained through previous employment has provided me with good interpersonal skills, patience and the ability to problem solve as I am well capable of thinking on my feet. I have gained experience of all aspects of Microsoft Office and most features of computing. Following instructions comes second nature to me and I am very much aware of how important time management, integrity, and attention to detail are to any company.
