This year is one of great reflection, through that reflection I’ve stumbled upon the realisation that I need to grow up and begin to find a career path of sorts. I’m definitely going to drop by our Career Centre at Glendon and talk to them but the universe helps those who help themselves right? So here is my plea, a resume of sorts and if after reading this you’re interested in hiring me, please get in touch! My name is Krista. I’m a fourth year student at Glendon College. I plan on graduating in April of 2014 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Canadian Studies. I’m a citizen of the Metis Nation of Ontario and a very proud aboriginal woman. My primary interests are the outdoors, Aboriginal culture and heritage, public speaking, history, queer community work, writing, photography, working with youth, videography and social media. I love being challenged and I thrive when I’m passionate about my work. I work well in team settings and have a long history of taking on leadership roles within student groups and organisations. I have work experience with elementary school aged students, leading tours and working with curriculum based educational programs. I also have work experience which include filling out reports, assisting in leadership development, night shifts, organising events, developing programs and creating campaigns. I can chop wood, start fires, build small structures and I am a quick learner. I am very comfortable being outdoors and I am an avid kayaker. I’m perfectly bilingual in French and English. I am also very comfortable in Spanish. I love writing and you can see examples of my work here on my blog. I am very comfortable with Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and tumblr. I have Standard First Aid, I need to renew my CPR and AED training but am more than willing to do it. I also have Positive Space training and WHMIS. I have thousands of hours of dedicated volunteer work as well as paid work and I would be more than happy to provide a full resume, it is available in either French of English. If I sound like someone you would like working at your company/organisation please leave a comment and I can head over to your website! I’m currently looking for a summer job, perhaps with a company where I can later find full time work. Thanks for reading! I sincerely hope this inspires you to perhaps get in touch with me!
