Cory Washburn

Executive Assistant

United States - Tests: 6

I worked for Robert Half International as an assistant to twelve recruiters, assisting them with all aspects of their job from answering phones and compiling routine correspondence to purchasing marketing materials and completing expense reports. Following my employment with Robert Half International I began my career with United States Probation Office. My first position was as receptionist and I quickly moved into a clerk position, assisting officers with their caseloads and providing support functions throughout the office. My final position was as Officer Support Specialist where I conducted investigations and provided any administrative functions as needed. During this time I was able to experience a myriad of administrative functions. I specifically worked as a background investigator for the last 4 and a half years, utilizing proprietary software, online sensitive resources, and public information to provide a full history for the judge to make decisions on bond and release. The specific investigative systems I have experience with include, but are not limited to, NCIC, NLETS, Clear, Lexis Nexis, Westlaw, and PACTS. I also used public information obtained from local courts. My last position with the United States Probation Office required me to work with little to no supervision and provided me with opportunities for personal and professional growth. While working in this capacity I also obtained my Master's degree, maintaining a 3.9 grade point average.
