Work Experience

I worked on the computers to go through advertisements and the information on the house listings, making sure everything was correct and valid to be posted on their website. This was important to the business as it made sure their professionalism was shown consistently which attracts customers to trust the business. - In the field of accounting I reconciled the daily transactions of the business and recorded the cheques to keep the business aligned with the correct money differences. I monitored multiple databases to keep track of all company inventory, including available listings, number of signs/boards and folders. - Prepared houses and made sure everything was in order for house viewings, as well as measuring the dimensions of the rooms and preparing them for photography.
