KEY SKILLS
Communication                 I have developed excellent written and oral communication skills which
                              were demonstrated in a final year project where I developed and
                              presented a competitive market analysis for an IT start-up and
                              submitted a 3000 word report on the process. This required
                              researching business journals, conducting interviews with three IT
                              analysts, a team presentation to 80 peers and academic staff and a
                              written business report. I achieved a Distinction for this project and very
                              positive feedback from my lecturer.
Teamwork                      As the President of the UNSW Bushwalking Club, I was faced with
                              rapidly falling membership rates. Those students who were members
                              were disgruntled with the committee and threatening to leave. I worked

 Joseph Sample                                                                                              1 of 2
                        with the 4 members of the committee and developed a six month plan
                        aimed at revitalising the club and doubling membership. We developed
                        a monthly timetable of events and publicised these on campus. I wrote
                        5 lively articles on the club and our activities and these led to renewed
                        interest from existing members and a 66% increase in overall
                        membership.
Numeracy                I have always had an interest in and talent for mathematics and chose
                        to study Accounting to pursue this interest. My results for all accounting
                        subjects have been either high credits or distinctions and at high school
                        I achieved 95% in 3U Maths.
                        In my position as a sales assistant at Value Supermarkets my 100%
                        accuracy and speed with the reconciliation of my register has been
                        commented on by my supervisor.
Analytical              In my Probability and Statistics course I had to develop a model to
                        define the probability of receiving at least one call per day if one
                        received 12 mobile phone calls per week. I developed a model,
                        translated the information into an equation, converted this int o a
                        general understanding and was able to solve the problem. My tutor was
                        very impressed with my work and I received a high distinction for the
                        course.
Client Focus                In my position at Bib and Bob Accountants I was required to assist
                            the accountants with the completion of client Business Activity
                            Statements. It became clear that many clients were using outdated
                            advice and therefore their calculations were inaccurate and the
                            accountants were spending significant time in locating and resolving
                            the problems. I liaised with Australian Taxation Office and
                            developed a list of common mistakes and the correct advice from
                            the ATO. This information was made available to all the accountants
                            and published in the client newsletter and helped to resolve the
                            issue.
