Administrative Specialist

United States - Last active: 04/09/2014 - Tests: 4

Over the last ten years, I have had the opportunity to work in different areas of the construction industry. My experience in general contracting (self-performing and non performing), architecture, and engineering & materials testing have given me a great understanding of the industry as a whole. The construction industry has also given me the ability to adapt to my changing surroundings and overcome obstacles quickly. I most recently was employed by a small self-performing general contractor. I handled all the business operations and administrative duties; including but not limited to, answering a call, creating and analyzing financial statements, invoicing, banking, contracts, payables, insurance, etc. There was no help from an outside accounting firm, except printing payroll checks and doing direct deposits. I started nine months after they opened the doors, and was met with the challenge of sorting out all the accounting. It was challenging but I liked that aspect of the position. A lot of my experience comes from working for a non-performing and extremely large General Contractor in Los Angeles as a Projects Administrative Manager. I started working for them on a project in area outside of their many California offices and when that project was finished, the company offered me a full time, permanent position in the Special Projects division of their Los Angeles office, which is the main office in California. . The Special Projects division handles projects under $10 million. I handled anywhere from 5 to 15 projects at a time while in this department. In July of 2007, I moved out of the Special Project division and became the field administrative project manager on a $60 million project for a non-profit, government contracted company, The Aerospace Corporation. My duties are outlined in my resume, however I did much more than what can be put on paper. Although I ran all field administrative office operations, my main focuses were the owner payment applications, maintain and track the project budget, owner compliance, subcontractor payment procurement, and subcontractor project compliance (insurance, contracts, change orders, etc). My owner pay applications ranged from $250,000 to $5 million a month and were based upon a GMP contract. I have worked with many other contract types on my previous projects. After receiving payment for these payment applications, I was responsible for allocating the funds correctly and timely either to subcontractors, vendors, or within the companies own accounting system. This was a very detail oriented process, in order for a subcontractor to receive payment, they were required to be in complete compliance as per their contract, this involved an extremely extensive amount of documentation and auditing that needed to be tracked and kept on file for the duration of the project. This project had over fifty subcontractors on contract. As this project was coming to a close, the company started two other projects for the same owner. I was requested by the owner for both of these projects. These projects totaled $25 million and my duties/responsibilities were the same as the previous project. I am extremely organized, loyal, driven, proactive, proficient, diligent, and detail oriented. I not only welcome challenges, I thoroughly enjoy them. I possess great critical thinking and troubleshooting skills. I am also actively seeking my BS in Accounting so I have a good understanding of GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) and can draft, read, and analyze all financial documents. One of my major strong points is my computer knowledge and experience, which includes but is not limited to: QuickBooks Pro and Premier both General, Contractor and Accountant editions, UDA Construction Suite, Prolog, Microsoft Office 2007 - 2010, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, Outlook, Publisher and Project, Word Perfect, Lotus, CMiC, Adobe Acrobat Professional, Nuance PDF professional creator, Android, iPhone mobile apps, Internet Explorer , Google Chrome, Firefox and others. I pick up software quickly and haven’t met any that I have had problems navigating and/or mastering. I am also skilled in networking and troubleshooting most old and new model desktops, laptops (PC and MAC) and office equipment.
