My responsibilities in all the jobs I’ve had so far are all similar. They all involved customer service qualities that I’ve honed over the years. Talking and listening to customers complains, concerns and questions is something that comes natural to me. Being a helpful person helps in these jobs and gives a sense of self-worth when you can help someone that is unable to reach something, or unable to carry bags to their car for example. I enjoy helping people, so the retail business is where I’d really like to stay.

My communication skills range from listening all the way to giving a productive and meaningful answer that can either help a situation or fully dissolve the conflict between two or more people. I try to put myself in everyone’s shoes and see the world in their eyes which is not always easy. I try to listen to everything so that my answers are valid and on topic.
Something that helps me there is also that I can speak three languages, if you involve Swiss-German in the mix. Being trilingual is a gift that I cannot use often but do when I am given the chance to as some people might not understand you enough to be able to give a constructive answer.
Communication to me is also something that is essential in a job, if you cannot communicate with your Manager or Team members then there is no place for you, likewise when you are working alone or for a client, you have to be able to communicate with the person regardless of the situation and give them the feedback or even the context they really need to hear or have asked for in the first place.
Leading is something that comes natural to me, in any situation at all. But before even being able to lead a team or even consider yourself a good leader you need to be good at team work and be able to help your team with everything they ask, even if it is not your job, you do it without question because you’d expect that from your team as well. Helping each other is a huge step to being a leader, and sometimes, a team doesn’t need to see you as their leader, but one of them and one willing to forget about the role and help them with everything they do on a daily basis.
I’ve always been able to go above and being for a team, whether it be taking on hours that weren’t mine or taking the blame for something because my team member had to leave for the day. I’ve always been there to make sure work was done, regardless of the situation we as a team, or even we as a store were in on that day or week.
