Adequate learning curve

I learnt a lot as a volunteer. I become familiar with working environment. My colleagues were up to standard in assisting me to enquire as much knowledge as I wanted. I enjoy doing administration and helping my colleagues in their admin work. I don't feel pressure because because I am catalyst for change. I take any college as a lesson and keep time record of all my work. I am hard working and assertive but easy to work with. I ask where I don't understand and I like working with a group and I can manage working on my own. When the work is too much I always make time at home and finish my work before the following working. I handle stress with a smile so that I do not affect other people.

Pros: Great opportunity for a perrant job
Cons: I can work overtime

Excelent learning curve

I am able to maintain pleasant helpful and professional manner while working under pressure. Also to work with supervision and without supervision . I am able to function well with a team. Passion for working children/ youth to build the relationship with the learners by staying in school up until late to assist learners with homework and group studies. To promote attandance and learner retention and also to identify unauthorized learners absenteeism and offer approprate assistance to prevent such absenteeism and learners dropout. The most challenging to deal with learners that are using drugs ,alcohol, smoking and to do home visits where it is necessary to talk with the parents about their learners behaviour in school.

Pros: Greate oppurtunity
Cons: Stippend

Fast learner

Working in a movement environment managerial division, administration and secretarial. Performing a normal working hours duties daily, Monday to Friday. Able to work as a team, overcome challenges by consulting my superiors, sharing ideas and implementation with my co-workers. Working in a type of administration environment i learnt a lot including improving computer skills, writing/communication skills, report writing skills and also able to work unsupervised. I enjoyed so much capturing using the School Administration Management System, because it just take me wherever I wanted to work in without any complications, just getting me straight to the point, this system is so reliable and helps to manage time. The most challenging part was when the system goes down or when we have load shedding then the system cut off, in that case we have to loose our done job, only to start afresh when it back again.

Pros: Eager to tackle my passion and work harder in order to qualify promotion
Cons: Normal working hours
