About ABSOLUTE APPOINTMENTS
Specialist Recruitment Consultancy in Media Sales positions and IT Recruitment Vacancies.
I am a dynamic, aggressive and goal oriented fresh graduate whose aim is to make the biggest sales ever in your company, using the invaluable skills I learned during my degree course in college and community organizations.
I possess excellent verbal and communication skills that can work wonders in convincing the most reluctant of customers to advertise with your company. I am very competent in communicating verbally with new people on a one on one basis with a lot of confidence. I am a good public speaker owing to my excellent oratory skills. I am also good at writing reports, dissertations and thesis borrowing from the skills I acquired while writing them for my undergraduate studies.
I possess the social skills required in a sales executive. Besides, I am open- minded and receptive to new ideas and challenges
I am a team organizer with vast experience in community work organization from both college and high school. I am able to lead large groups in any task as may be required. While in college, I was the leader of a student-based environmental cleanliness awareness group. My group was voted the best in year 2009. I managed to lead my members in successfully creating awareness on the dangers of an unclean environment and the benefits associated with conserving the environment in the community.
I possess excellent problem solving skills that suit any kind of a situation no matter how complicated it may be. I am very resilient and adequately prepared to face all sorts of challenges. For any challenging situation that I face in my daily activities, I face it with one thing in mind; what a man can do, another man can do. This is the determination with which I face any challenge before me. I am always guided by the resolve to stay on until I find a solution; ‘quitters never win’ and I take nothing short of a solution for all the challenges I face in any given task.
During my term as the leader of the environmental cleanliness awareness committee, we were faced with the problem of inadequate finances to reach all the target groups and no one seemed to have an idea as to what to do. I suggested charity walk for fundraising as a solution. I organized it and we successfully raised enough funds to see us through one year.
I am computer literate and numerate with proficiency in software packages, operating systems. I installed software packages in computers while at the university.
