Throughout my career, I have been intensively involved in all stages of production, including product development, merchandising, and QC, and now I am seeking new challenges with a company in need of someone with management abilities. I corresponded with vendors, buyers, warehouses and overseas factories on a daily basis, coordinating production of various styles and samples. I have excellent knowledge of garment construction and patternmaking. For years, I have been working with Technical Design Assistants, training and supervising them. I have excellent communicating and interpersonal skills, and also a great ability to assess people's professional level.
My ability to analyze needs and make right decision in work process has proven to be one of my greatest assets and credited with significant impacting on sales for the company wherever I have worked. I believe that my strong commitment to high ethical and professional standards would allow me to make a significant contribution to the team.
