My career goal is just simple, to work for your company with all the best that I can be. I have a couple of skills up on my sleeve and I know that if your company hires me I can prove to be capable, efficient and effective in any work that has been given to me and show the abilites that I have acquired. I worked in call centers and I can say that I made an impact to my superiors and proved that I am worthy in doing my job and provide them more than what they expected. I worked in Teleperformance that became my first job after I graduated. Luckily that was the first company that I applied to and not to brag but I got hired in the first try in the interview. I was so excited to working as a call center agent and to add to my luck is I got a Technical Support position for VERIZON that is related to my course. I stayed for a year and a couple of months in Teleperformance and I went home to our province to apply for a job there since it is much convenient for me because the site is located near my hometown. I got hired as a Tehcnical Support and as a Customer Service Representative since our scope also has Sales for INTUIT TURBOTAX and after a year I got promoted to a Level 2 Support. The first work at home job I got was with Fortress Holdings. We handled order and refund processing through phone support. It was a great experience that made me want to work at home even more. The second job I got is with Thumbtack. Thumbtack is a website where service professionals search for customers in offering their services. We handle email support, answering every clients' queries and problems with the website. Now I am just waiting for your company to hire me so that I can again serve and to help the company reach their goal and provide them the service and the employee that they are looking for. You won't regret hiring me and I assure you that I will exceed your expectations.
