My overall objective is to obtain an employment opportunity supporting the arts/trades film industry within New Orleans. I have acquired mechanical, technical, and managerial experiences that are indicative of my detail-oriented aptitude. In the past I have successfully exceeded customer’s highest expectations, because I respect the value of service I provide and communicate concisely in a timely manner. At work I adhere to completing my scheduled assignments. My personality and conduct bolster non-confrontational strength when working alone or within a team. Throughout my growing efforts I have learned to be self-motivated and self-disciplined, both personally and professionally. These earnest qualities are fundamental when deliberating the employment of an ideal candidate. Considering my desire to be thorough, I believe that I should be allowed the opportunity to discuss further the future of my employment with your project.
