Description:

I am looking for work anywhere in the GTA that will allow me to build my experience in the customer service and sales fields. I have a G licence and I am able to travel long distances. I am highly motivated and capable of achieving quick and positive results for any job that is placed before me. My reliability and integrity throughout past employment has been lauded by employers.

I am studying at university part time but I am looking for a full time sales opportunity. While I value the importance of education, I realize that a liberal arts and science degree is a colossal waste of money. Instead, I would rather pursue a career that is deeply rooted in my childhood. I started selling honey at the end of my driveway when I was a little boy and I have never regretted it since. I developed a knack for convincing people that my family's honey was far superior to store-bought honey because they would experience the health benefits of locally made honey. Even when the honey business closed several years later, I still had customers knocking on my door asking if we still had honey. Through this experience, I realized that a friendly smile, a listening ear, a good product and a relationship built on trust wins you long term clients every time.

Persistence is the key to exceptional selling. I never give up until my sale is complete.
