My Ideal Job

My ideal job would provide me with any of the following opportunities:

  • The first would consist of training, equipping and supervising others so they might become more productive members of a workforce team. I enjoy identifying quality employees and providing opportunities for them to excel in their work. I help each employee learn new skills and exercise their initiative to excel and move forward into areas of more responsibility. I have traveled extensively, lived in other countries, and have both education and experience in cross-cultural relationships. I enjoy working with people who have cultural and social perspectives and experiences different from my own. Being able to leverage my skills to help develop others around me would be a large part of my ideal job.
  • The second would be the opportunity to use my accounting/bookeeping experience, common sense, and problem solving abilities to successfully oversee the financial health of a business. In my current position, I manage all aspects of accounting for the business including a/r, a/p, g/l, payroll, tax filing, etc. using Quickbooks Pro 2015. I interact well with all levels of management/owners while I am trusted to make daily decisions on my own in an un-supervised role.
  • The third would be the opportunity to use my experience, common sense, and problem solving abilities to successfully oversee the growth of a business. In my current position, I manage the daily operation of a convention center spread over 86 acres with 17 buildings and a 62 lot RV Park. I have excelled in managing the entire operation including maintenance, employee relations, vendor and customer satisfaction, advertising/marketing, accounting, and legal/governmental issues. While I work well with the owners and senior supervisors, I am capable and trusted to make effective daily decisions on my own. My previous management experience included being VP Operations at a folding carton manufacturing facility with 80 employees and an $11MM annual budget.

"Not only do I know Chuck on a personal level as a man of integrity and honesty, I have also worked with Chuck on a business level and he has always provided quality work on time. I would recommend Chuck to any business or individual."
