An Awesome Company as an Awesome Worker
Here is your chance to tell the employer about your work experience. The aim is to write what you have done, where you were working and how you performed your tasks (which was obviously in an excellent way). Remember to add the date you started and finished a job on the left. Below is an example.

I was jointly responsible for the excellent design of the Hey I Am website. I gained a lot of useful skills, such as HTML and CSS knowledge and improved my proficiency in Photoshop. Most of all, I learned to keep up to pace in a busy office environment and stick to deadlines. I would say my organizational skills massively improved in this job
What languages do you speak? Even if you can only understand a language, it might be worth mentioning in this section.
For instance: I Speak Fluent English and Pretty Good French

I have worked with Nicolle for over ten years and she is a great co-worker who can navigate between the technical and non-technical side of an IT project well. She routinely balances high priority projects with “boutique” projects and makes sure they are both held to high standards. She manages the rollout schedule of all new software to the stores flawlessly. As the main contact for our pilot stores, she is quick to answer questions from stores and escalates issues to my group for fixing. She works closely with my group to generate functional specs that are detailed and address any potential issues that may arise with the changes. Her previous store experience is a great asset when it comes to designing and testing out functionality. She is well-liked and respected in our department.

Nicole has a ridiculously deep knowledge base about retail operations and back-end commerce systems. She is a future-thinker who embraces change and thrives on solving complex problems. I had the great fortune of working with Nicole to create a new, customer-centric, digital retail experience at Barnes & Noble. We couldn't have succeeded without her enthusiasm, intelligence and capability.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Nicolle for more than seven years. She has proven time and again to be a fantastic partner. In her current role, she brings to the table a unique blend of both, experience working in Barnes & Noble stores, and solid project leadership experience on countless IT projects. Nicolle serves as my primary link to what systems changes are going out to our stores; has an encyclopedic knowledge of our systems and the history of their development; and can troubleshoot like no other. We have worked together on numerous high-profile projects, and the results speak for themselves in the way they’ve improved store operations, driven sales, and increased workload efficiency. Any team would be lucky to have her on board.
