Objective
I am looking to change careers to a position that has a more consistent schedule than the one I currently have. I consider myself to be malleable, a quick learner, and I constantly strive to find more effective ways to complete tasks. Although I have been put into “boss” positions, I considered myself to be a leader instead of a boss. I„ve chosen to lead my staff based off this statement, if you do things in life to the best of your ability and set a good example, those around you will follow in your footsteps. If there is a more qualified candidate for this position, I ask that you keep my resume for future job openings as my background makes me flexible for various positions.
