Skills

Over the years, I have learned some skills along the way. The ones that I have listed below are the most important to me.

I decided on these three skills because these are the most important for me when it comes to providing good work ethics and relationships with colleagues. These are the ones that truly mean a lot to me.

Communication

As a courtesy clerk at a grocery store, a teller at a bank and an emergency medical technician (EMT) for an ambulance company, I need to be able to communicate clearly and sufficiently to my peers and clients. In a teaching situation, communication is necessary for teaching students and speaking to people in the education department.

In every job that I have worked in, communication has been key. I learned to really use my voice in my EMT job. We are placed in situations that can be pretty dangerous and communication with my work partner has been what has kept us safe while on a call.

Management

In any situation, management is used to complete something as well as direct others. In my job as a teller and EMT, I have had to train new employees. I think this is a great skill to have because it had given me an opportunity to teach others. Now that I want to teach elementary age children, I feel that my past experience has allowed me the chance to experience teaching in more than one environment. Not only is management good for teaching but it is also good for time management. Certain curriculum needs to be completed at a specific time; I know that with my other skills and values, I am very good at time management.

There have been times when I have had to manage a group of people. It is a difficult task. When I was in my twenties, I was an assistant manager at a bank that I worked in. The employees were either much older than I was or about the same as age as me. I learned how to communicated and manage a diverse staff.

Basic Life Support

As an EMT, I have knowledge about providing life saving skills. If I come across and injured or ill person, I can quickly asses what needs to done before taking that person to an emergency room. This include training in basic cardiac, respiratory, and traumatic injuries in emergency care. I am also certified in cardiac pulmonary resuscitation with the American Heart Association.

I have been an EMT for eight years. This is a job that I find very rewarding and I plan on keeping up with my skills even after I am no longer working as an EMT.
