I had a lot of LinkedIn invitations lately and I finally logged on to accept them. I don't monitor my LinkedIn account but maybe once every two months but I decided to make some updates.
I need to get additional recommendations from my old colleagues but I am very satisfied with the two that I already have on my account. I do have to say that I am pretty sweet at my job! I have been working in the same industry for eight years and I don't know if I could do anything else. I've grown in the company I worked for and went through several mergers before the company closed it's doors in 2008.
I started just as a sales and marketing assistant when I was just 18 years old. (If you ask Stacey why I got hired... she will tell you that I only got hired because I was hot.) My boss was... interesting but he was a cool guy.
I then moved to Regional and International Client Manager. I was dealing with the five regional offices in the US and Mexico and then all the offices overseas including, China, Korea, Turkey, and Bangladesh. I maintained the audit schedules and audit documentation for these offices.
Then I moved to certification manager (I think that's what my title was) and then the Client Specialist.
Wow... I had a lot of positions with a 5 year period. I love what I do and I get paid decent money for doing it. I am OCD about my work and I take a lot of pride in doing my work perfectly!
