Summary

I am young, fit, ambitious and dynamic. I work well (especially) under pressure and interface well with people, making me a valuable asset of any team. I am conscientious and diligent, and deliver more than asked of me at all times. I am low maintenance, in that I require little or no supervision. My studies have equipped me with the skills, knowledge & competencies required for a successful career in the business environment. The part time employment and full time employment experiences that I have, have also given me first hand (hands on) exposure to dealing with both, internal and external customers, and this interface has enhanced acquired tools and skills to perform more efficiently and at a higher level than ever. During my internship at SAPREF (South African Petroleum Refinery), I have been exposed to a wide variety of issues within the petrochemical industry as well as the broader construction and purchasing field, which has given me good experience in any role I move into. I have proven that there is no limitation to what can be done, with a positive attitude and work ethic. I am extremely hard working and have the capability and capacity to learn and develop the required skills to fulfill any role in my field. My good work ethic, positive attitude and virtuous quality of work has prompted SAPREF to retain me as an employee after my two-year internship. My value has been recognised and rewarded in this regard. Any investment in me is a sound one, with a positive spin-off for the company.
