Beside the speed of 60 wpm, it was required to monitor mistakes, minimise errors and use spell check. Through the IT classes, I got to know Excel too, especially with respect to the formatting, editing formulae, using numerous functions and creating charts and spreadsheets.
During my university studies, I familiarized myself with the culture, history and literature of English and German speaking countries and I was specialized in German Literature and Business English, the latter making the usage of PowerPoint necessary. These years also provided me with the ability of working under pressure in order to achieve deadlines and to pick up new knowledge quickly.
As a teacher, I needed to use my German, my typing and computer skills. I had to create exercises in Microsoft Word and I took advantage of my computer skills during several of my temporary jobs when I was required to register data into databases or to type letters.
I always took the opportunity to gain work experience with seasonal and part-time jobs. Although they were different types of work, they all contributed to my personal development. Working for a market research company and doing mystery visits was one of my most interesting jobs and gave me the possibility to advance my problem solving and communication skills to a high degree. Attention to detail was an inevitable part of my daily routines.
I have worked both individually and as a member of a team and I always take responsibility of my own work. I am considered an ambitious, motivated and reliable workforce, and, when needed, I work overtime to finish my job.
This opportunity would suit me well, because I possess all the key abilities the job requires. This vacancy would give me the opportunity to develop my computer skills and the flexible hours would guarantee to manage my time.
Area Covered: typwriting, word processing, German, English, interpersonal skills
