You are motivated and driven. You volunteer for new initiatives and challenges without waiting to be asked. You take ownership of your projects and assignments and truly want to make a difference.
You are a problem solver. You enjoy finding creative solutions and don't get easily flustered. If you don't know the answer, you'll dig until you find it.

You like helping people. You are proactive, yet patient and cool under pressure. Whether assisting candidates or working across a project team, you exude warmth.
You think on your feet. You like learning new things, and pick up new processes quickly. When things change, you ask good questions and prepare a backup plan.
You communicate clearly. You are comfortable engaging an audience in person or by phone. You can explain just about anything to anyone and are a confident writer.
You love technology. You enjoy learning new systems, streamlining processes, and learning shortcuts. You enjoy sharing your findings with those around you, too!
