What was the most rewarding work activity you performed this week?
This week, I continued to work on my previous project from week three. Since this project had over 850 different inactive contacts, it took me a long time to complete it. Once I got a rhythm on salesforce and found a way to get through about 200 a day, It few by. It took me most of week 4 to complete it but once it was done, it was extremely rewarding and personally fulfilling.
What have you learned about how you handle stressful work situations?
This recent project has taught me a lot about stress in the work environment. When I'm given a very large task it's harder to tackle head on since it's not always easy to get past the thought that I still have 800 to go when I can barely get through the first 10 efficiently. I've learned to section my work off and make personal goals for the specific day. For example, I would tell myself to at least get through 150 in one day; a measurable goal that rewards my work with progress.
What skills have you acquired at this point that makes you think you will be successful in a position in this industry?
Over my time at Signiant so far, I've discovered that my speed and accuracy on most projects makes me a great asset. The inside sales team and marketing team have been giving me more work since they know I can get through it fast which keeps me busy and helps them a lot.
