The most important thing for me is being able to help people. Throughout my life, every job I’ve held has been people focused. I’ve worked in several sectors – restaurant, retail, health care and government – and each provided a unique opportunity to put people first, which was so important to me.
During a summer in University I worked at Service Canada. This experience introduced me to the feeling you get when you help someone with their career goals. My role was to help people with their cover letters, resumes, and interview skills. And it was always so rewarding when someone would get the job!
When I graduated with my degree in Political Science, I set out to get a job helping people. My degree and drive helped me get my first job in politics soon after I graduated. While working for a local politician, I found immense pleasure in helping people in a variety of ways, including getting the drug coverage they need, helping autistic children get into the necessary government funded programs, and helping local community organizations receive grant funding. And that was just the tip of the iceberg!
Now being at Sales Talent Agency, I get to continue fulfilling my passion by helping companies find the staff they need to succeed and helping people find a job that’s right for them.
For the love of sales!
