I am a self-motivated individual who has no lack of knowledge of people. I have worked with people of all ages, genders, and lifestyles. I am positive and friendly and I adapt really well to new situations. I am organized and efficient, and I always get things done on time. My goal in life is to be able to inspire as many people as I can, directly and indirectly. Because of this, I am always looking for new ways to improve myself so that I can be a role model for myself and for others. I make the best of every situation and try to leave places better than they were when I got there.
As a telephone interviewer, I had the responsibility of achieving the Performance Rate every hour of every shift I worked. I had to hit this rate every day or my job was at stake. Each week, I called hundreds, maybe thousands, of people all over the country, asking them to take my surveys. For every survey I completed, I got one point towards my rate goal. Not only did I have to read everything in the survey verbatim, I sometimes had to create an introduction that would make people interested in taking the surveys. If they weren't interested, I would try everything I had to convince them otherwise.
The biggest thing I learned from working at Clear Insights is that you won't influence everyone. If you do your best, you will influence the people that you're meant to but you will not be able to help everyone you come into contact with. It's disappointing but it's something that I've had to come to terms with while working in customer service and it is something I will remember in all of my future careers.
I worked as a substitute teacher during my off track semesters for three years. There are limitless experiences I've had and lessons I've learned from being a sub. During my time in this position, I reflected often back to my own childhood and elementary school experiences. Children are learning new things about the world around them every day. It's scary. I remember being scared and confused often when I was that age and the world now is so much scarier than it was then. I learned very quickly that children need a place (if not more than one) where they can be themselves and feel safe. Many children don't have that in their own homes so it is up to their educators to provide that safe, happy place for them. Young children still have very malleable minds. As their overseer, I did everything I could to encourage them and teach them all about the good in the world. Sparta is a low-income school district where a lot of drugs and abuse encircle these children's homes. The addiction and abuse cycles are hard to break, so they can continue for many generations. My goal was to let these children see that there is good in the world and that they can be that good. I taught them how to treat people right, how to learn, and how to keep going when they had a bad day. I hope that these children learned a fraction of what they taught me, and I'm excited to have even more experiences as I continue my career.
After having worked at Wendy's in Ohio, I moved to Missouri and got a job at a Wendy's near me. I expected nothing to be different because I was doing the same job, just in a different place. The only thing I expected to be different were the people. After a couple of weeks I realized that I was right. Everything was exactly the same except the people. I learned that no matter where you are, there are nice people, mean people, and people who live different lives than me. I realized that that is a good thing or a bad thing depending on how I look at it. There will be mean people everywhere I go. No matter what job I have, there will be people whose personalities clash with mine. Fortunately though, this means that there will be people everywhere who will be willing to be my friend. There will be people who are great administrators and mentors. I will be able to learn and teach and love no matter where I go. I am grateful that I was able to take this lesson with me when I moved on from Wendy's.
During my time at Wendy's, I learned a lot about myself and about other people. My responsibilities were mostly associated with the making of and serving food. I made sandwiches, salads, and wraps. I was also a cashier at times and served the food, and spent much time helping customers. I spent time with employees that I didn't always get along with and I had to serve customers who were rude or mean. I spent countless hours on my feet, talking to customers and preparing food. I learned how to treat others with respect and kindness even when I didn't think they deserved it. I learned that people grow up differently than I did. People choose different lifestyles that I might not necessarily agree with. I can't controls others' actions, but I can control my own thoughts, feelings, and actions. I can hope that people will make the best choices for themselves and I can move on and make my life the best life possible. Through these experiences, I've learned how important education is. I learned so much at Wendy's but I must say that I did not enjoy it. It was hard work that wasn't worth the pay. It increased already-existing feelings of anxiety and depression. I made it my goal to work hard in college so that I can have a job that I love and that supports me financially. I want to impress these lessons on as many students as I can so that they will remain in school and work hard to make happy and successful lives for themselves.
