    United States - Last active: 22 days ago - Tests: 2

    Since the beginning of my career training, I've been working in corporate settings where I was responsible and accountable for the coordinated management of multiple related projects directed toward strategic business and other organizational objectives. I was required to manage a range of general administrative and specialized tasks in a timely and accurate manner which included structuring meetings and distributing agendas. There was a continuous alignment of program scope with strategic business objectives which I recommended to modify in order to enhance effectiveness toward the business result or strategic intent of different projects. I started broadening marketing interests with a future insight into social media power, as well as engaging into some general technical training. Being recently appointed as sales manager I increased the company’s by securing new partners, consulting engagements and by delivering new projects. This also makes me responsible for program and portfolio management activities within the Sales and Marketing division. I dedicate myself to learning new things, striving to be the best at anything that I try to accomplish.I believe it’s the steps you take in order to try to better your faults which people acknowledge as your commitment to any work environment you put yourself in.
