Account Manager, Vancouver
Throughout my life I have become an extremely passionate and driven individual with a keen interest in developing positive relationships and growth. As a recent BBA-Marketing graduate from Langara College, the knowledge that I have gained throughout this program will surely be an asset in my career in the recruitment industry.
Sales seemed to be a natural fit for me right from the start. My first sales position was when I was 16 years old. From there I worked in various retail sales companies and one thing I knew for sure, was that I had what it took to be in sales and be good at it.
After graduating from high school I went to Spain and worked as an Au Pair for the summer. I lived with a lovely family and taught their two children English. It was an amazing cultural experience for me and left me wanting more. I became very interested in the development, structure and functioning of human society and enrolled in sociology. I found it fascinating but soon realized that a career in marketing and business was a more suited direction for me.
My involvement in the Leaders of Tomorrow Mentorship program through my final graduation year has brought me valuable skills and broadened my professional network. With this broadened network I stumbled across a role as a recruiter where I received valuable experience. I continue with this industry because I love building relationships and excel at helping others find and reach their goals. Recruitment has proven to be a strong fit with my lifestyle and personality. This mixed with my sales abilities and drive to succeed has put me where I am today.
Aside from my academic and professional success, my proudest accomplishment has been on a personal note. Despite being Type 1 Diabetic I have become a serious runner and have completed three half marathons and one full marathon in conjunction with raising money and awareness for this and other health related illnesses. This alone has proven to me that I can set challenging goals and accomplish them. Sports and fitness have always been a major aspect of my life, and will continue to be as I pursue my career in the recruitment industry.
Being welcomed into Sales Talent Agency has been an unbelievably exciting opportunity and I look forward to many years working with such an amazing team!
For the love of sales!
