    Tylor Fulkerson


    United States - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 2

    As a recent graduate the University of Washington, I have gained a well-rounded set of skills. Through my studies, I honed my ability to discuss diverse topics through concise writing and articulate speaking. If I do not know about a topic, I have the skill to navigate both electronic and library resources to educate myself about it. In addition to academics, I have gained customer service and computer experience through internships at local museums and working in the campus coffee shops. My focus has mainly been analyzing visual representations of gender, race, religion, and nation in the Philippines and Indonesia throughout history. I am interested in how the construction of culture and politics impacts everyday life. For my final research paper, I wrote about the shifting image of masculinity in popular arts. My analysis focused on the depictions the Philippine national hero Lapu-Lapu. Some of the sources I looked at were komiks, films, and monuments from the post-WWII era. Another major work was for a course titled Violence, Myth, and Memory. I created a documentary putting self-conducted interviews with Indonesian students in dialogue with images of gender and sexuality in the Indonesian media. I was fascinated to see the disparity between the stories of lived identity and how they are represented on TV. For these projects, I learned how to record and transcribe oral history, which aided in my internship at the Wing Luke. In my internship, I worked with oral testimonies from Japanese-Americans interned during WWII in America. I worked independently transcribing audio from interviews with the elders in the community about their experiences and carefully scanning documents into the electronic archive. This required me to use photoshop to edit the documents for clarity. From these experiences I have learned how to use many computer programs from photoshop, excel, word, outlook, powerpoint, and data entry. I can use these skills along with my research ability to help you with any task you may need and complete it in a timely and efficient manner.

    Lead Generation inside Sales


    Over the last 15 months I have worked as a Sales Account Manager and Team Leader Support with a foreign company based in Italy. Of which I have learnt not just the easy part of work when it comes to the sales calls but also led me to being a part of the management team also. This is where I got to join in the companies big events that had been taken place over the Island and in different parts of the world. Organizing the Databases for worldwide companies, such as CA Technologies, Cisco, EMC, IBM, VMWARE, F-Secure & of course Fusion IO which is now known to be SanDisk. This meant that I was the first person to commence their new databases for world renowned companies. I was taught the CRM at the very beginning of my career; therefore it was a must to always appreciate the clientele’s response. This is what made Lead generation so successful. Shortly after I was promoted to the team leader support. This was one of the jobs I looked forward to doing, sending out Emails to clients and also helping out the rest of the staff with the daily questions that arose on the information they were working on. Such as if the Co worker was not aware of what the call required I would give them the idea of what they are introducing to the client. “What is an IO Drive?” was a main question from the team prior commencing the lead generation, that’s where I came in and gave them a full training on “Flash Nand Memory installed close to the CPU”. For the most part: I’m a Meticulous, dedicated sales professional with demonstrated leadership skills aimed at exceeding sales goals. Proven success in managing sales campaigns with a view to increasing customer base and boosting profits. Well-organized with great attention to detail aimed at executing sales programs in conjunction with set company directives.
