Objectives

To obtain a position where I can develop and progress within the company. I am a very outgoing young lady who is currently a full-time student at Vancouver Island University. Enrolled in the Bachelor of Business Administration programme, I have just declared my  major in Human Resources Management and Major in Management. Because of this, I am hoping to find an employer who can accommodate fluctuating availability during school terms, whilst using the skills in the industry to gain hands on experience. I am glad to say all my university courses are fully online for the next few terms due to COVID regulations, and this will not restrict my availability. I have been in various work situations, as I continually strive to apply my university development into physical environments. As I learn more and expand my knowledge, I hope to find a company that values hard work and dedication. I am confident that I will be a great addition to your team and develop my career development. I am currently employed as a manager at Home Depot, but would like to generate more revenue on the side.
