Sales Operations Analyst / IBM
Responsible for managing sales reports forecasting Canadian market trends, benchmarking against historical data, and tracking current performance by brand and region; reports were used to communicate health of the business to the senior leadership team and drive targeted sales strategies.
My IBM experience was life changing. It has provided me with a large amount of industry insight, inspired me to drive for nothing but excellence and shown me that I can excel and adapt while working outside of my comfort zone.
Assistant Manager / Campus Cove
Computer administrator for networked gaming center (32 stations). Responsibilities included overseeing computer technical issues, stock ordering and employee scheduling.
The Cove gave me a great experience in getting things done with limited utilities. Ensuring that all computers were up to date, secure, connected and operating at a high capacity while adhering to a strict hardware budget was a unique challenge. Also, it fulfilled my childhood dream job of working at an arcade.
Staging Lane Coordinator / Saskatchewan International Raceway
Responsible for controlling and organizing race car traffic while aiding in event operation. Required a high level of communication in a noisy and fast paced environment.
Working for SIR has influenced my life in many ways. Most notably, it has taught me how to handle operating in stressful situations and revealed to me the hidden complexities within running large scale event & competitions.
