I decide to go College
I went to Goodwin College for a professional office assistant. For two years, I learn how to do excel PowerPoint keyboarding typing and a lot more. After receiving my certificate, I started looking for a job in the field of office assistant or customer service.
My first job after college
The first job I got was a customer service at a call center. Doing collections for a company name MCI. You all should remember that telephone company back in the days. Out of curiosity, I wonder what happens that company? It Just disappear like that. Any how back to my job experience. Now, I have the knowledge and experience to work in the computer field.
Looking job in technology field
I put a job application out to Cigna Healthcare for a customer service position. I receive a call to coming for an interview, I went in and I got the job.Yes, I’m so happy the pay is great and the vacation package along with the 401k plan was phenomenal.
Now I got the dream job I told few coworkers from my previous job. They applied and also got the job. After working there for almost two weeks. Without a reliable car, my best friend and my boyfriend will drop me off. They were so kind to and picked me up from work as well.
Job became stressful
The job was getting stressful, I didn’t think it worth commuting back and forth anymore. My ride was not too reliable, I decide to resign. After I resign, I attend car sales workshop. They were talking about how much money a salesperson can make, selling cars. And the six-figure they told us we can make selling cars was enough for me to decide I want to be a salesperson.
Walk around presentation
I have me do a walk around presentation, to demonstrate my skills. They wanted me to show them, how I would sell a car to a customer. The first thing they did was pop the hood of a car on the sale floor. After I did the presentation, they clapped and say congratulation to me. I started smiling, I felt a relief.
They asked me if I wanted to sell cars and I say yes. Right away they have me filing out the application for the job. I was very happy, I shouted hip hip hurray, I’m going to make a lot of money. I started working at a Saturn dealership.
At that time, I didn’t know much about Saturn product, that they were not easy cars to sell. Saturn did come along way redesigning their product line. They did a good job redesign; the cars were looking sharp and have lots of features. I was not making enough money, I started to seek job elsewhere at a Nissan dealership.
Looking for new job
I send an application in for the job posted on the website, in a short time I receive a call to come in and see the Manager. The manager name was Jodi Mitchell I can’t forget that name. I went in and did my interview with him. He told me after the interview he will call me. To let me know what decision is is. The next day he calls too let me know i have got the job. Again, I was very happy, I went in and do all the paperwork for a new hire. I work for the Nissan dealer for 4 years.
