Professional Skills

IMLS – Life and Career Skills:

  • Flexible and adaptable – I have kept to a “roll with it” philosophy throughout my career. This has served me well through multiple promotions, management changes, and career changes. All my previous job experience and education provide a strong foundation that allows me to keep building up and out.
  • Self-Direction and Initiative – I work well independently and always keep an eye out for problems to troubleshoot. As a self-directed learner, I am committed to lifelong self-improvement. I take advantage of many great (and often free!) learning opportunities and resources – COD, Coursera, DuoLingo, edX, Kahn Academy, LinkedIn Learning, Gale Courses, etc.
  • Social and Cross-Cultural Skills – I am open minded and enjoy working with and learning from others.
  • Productive, accountable, and responsible – I am extremely reliable, enthusiastic, and professional. I take pains to always deliver on work goals.
