Go outside your comfort zone and venture out to the place unknown.


I am part of a team of leaders who handle the process side of Amazon fulfillment starting from when an order is made to when the item is shipped to a customer. I’m a member of leadership for both Inbound and Outbound departments. I also drive associate engagement by developing and implementing exciting and culturally aware events. Linguistics has helped add a social and communication side to a number-driven company.    

My tip is to go outside your comfort zone and venture out to the place unknown. Be open to anything that will give your resume extra spice. I made sure to get involved in as many activities and groups as possible, which showed employers I was adaptable and a quick learner. It also helped me showcase a variety of talents that I had within my major.
