In my first position out of college, I worked in a data entry position with a weather company in town that serviced over 200 clients globally. It was in this position that I enhanced my attention to detail and learned that every customer was different in their needs and expectations but that all customers held the company, and the employees at that company, to a very high standard and expected the very best at all times. It was also in this position that I learned to work well under pressure, meeting even the most strict of deadlines. Then, in the next two positions I held, I worked in a front desk/reception capacity for two hotels in the area. It was in these roles that I not only mastered my over the phone skills but also my people skills, thus perfecting my abilities to carry a conversation and be friendly, skills I had not yet had the opportunity to master. In my current position, I am a general forecaster with a small start up weather company in the area. It is in this position that I have to consult many different numbers, graphs, charts and other written forecasts and, from that information, develop and write a detailed forecast concerning the client in question. Attention to detail and delivering an accurate forecast, before the required deadline, are what the clients need and expect. Writing well and working well under pressure, regardless of the complexity of the forecast, are very important skills needed in this position.
