SKILLS PROFILE
Commercial
      Sound commercial knowledge gained from my degree ranging across a
       spectrum of disciplines: economics, human resource management and
       marketing.
      Experience of different business environments gained from eight months
       agency work for various blue-chip companies such as BDO Stoy Haywood,
       East Midlands Electricity, Capital One and Experian where I handle credit
       card applications and am trusted to quality assure the application process.
Planning, implementation and achieving results
      Since graduation travelled extensively throughout Australia, Thailand and
       Indonesia. Thoroughly researched flight and insurance options and planned a
       rough schedule within a limited budget. Adapted these plans to meet
       contingencies but still managed to see more than the average tourist and made
       many international contacts.
      My final year dissertation on the impact of globalisation, (awarded 70%) was a
       structured discussion drawing on many sources of research to consider
       different points of view.
Influencing, communication and teamwork
      Travelling on my own required getting on with a variety of people,
       communicating with limited knowledge of local languages and raised my
       cultural awareness.
      Vacation job as part of a team producing cream cakes for Tesco. Promoted to
       running a production line in outer-packing, which involved co-ordinating my
       own team’s work with my counterpart in inner-packing.
      Part-time work as a sales assistant in a clothes shop. Organised stock layout on
       the shop floor, helped with stock control and dealt with members of the public.
      Working on team projects on my degree course involved leadership,
       negotiation and persuasion.
