RE: (Job Title)
For your consideration and review I have enclosed my resume for any temporary positions that may be available. I am happy to share with you my strategic planning, leadership, administrative management, project coordination and customer service experience that I gained during the last 8 years.
My recent experience as a Teacher with the Surrey School District, Shift Supervisor at Windset Farms and Operations Coordinator with Securiguard Services Inc. has provided me the skills needed to work with a team while building and sustaining client relationships. During this period I had the opportunity to deal with corporate teams and individual employees in preparing budget forecasts, internal audits, and scheduling and maintaining efficient staffing and service levels. On a daily basis, I was using my conflict management skills, organizational skills and problem solving abilities. At both Windset Farms and Securiguard, I was a member of the Occupational Health and Safety Committee and also the First Aid Attendant at Windset Farms.
My educational background in Education, Technology Management and Human Resource Management through UBC and BCIT has also provided me the tools to present solutions to diverse clients by building professional relationships and understanding, learning and respecting different operational processes. I have also learnt to coordinate tasks in an efficient manner and have been successful in completing a specialized course in Negotiation Skills through BCIT.
While having been awarded the “Shirley M Wong Award in Education” which is endowed by the Canadian Chapter of the International Society for Business Education, it recognizes an outstanding student in the Bachelor of Education Program. I also received the "Outstanding Customer Service and Reliability Award" in 2010 and 2011 which recognized my ability to build valued relationships, communicate effectively and build and maintain trust at all levels of the organization. I feel my professionalism, flexibility, motivation and positive attitude adds to the morale of any team environment.
I am very interested in meeting with your hiring team to further discuss the positions within the temporary pool which I feel I can contribute to with my skills, strengths and work experience. I may be contacted at 778-987-3888 or email@example.com. Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to hearing from you.
