• Excellent Communication: Able to effectively listen and understand information along with ability to speak clearly so others can understand me correctly.

• Selective Attention: Documented success in concentrating on a specific task for a long time without getting distracted.

• Logical Reasoning: Track record of applying general guidelines and rules to specific situations to solve problems easily.

I wish to put my skills, abilities, passion and energy to work for AlliedBarton Security Services.
