Sales included products (such as consumer goods, Mortgage and Home Loans, and Corporate products) and services (IT, Finance, and Consulting).

Sales Skills:
With several years in the sales industry and taking on sales roles in non sales jobs, I have acquired a wide range of skills and techniques I utilize in sales situations (meetings/discussions/contract signings). I have put together several sales campaigns for sales teams as well as developed marketing ideas to further push and grow sales departments within companies.

Business Procedures/Policies and Implementations:
While working for large corporations, I was able to learn how things need to be done in order to ensure business processes flow effortlessly and efficiently. With my experience working for Disneyland, Apple Computer, and Wells Fargo Bank, I was able to learn best practices and how to implement those practices and drive change management.

I have been able to use this knowledge and implement my own processes and procedures at the other smaller companies I have worked at. I have implemented HR procedures, such as, employee review procedures, employee hire/leave procedures and forms. I have also created employee programs, such as an internship program. At Nichiai, I designed the internship program and created all the necessary documents, review processes, and the training program.
