Resolutions Expediter

December 2016 • Ogden, UT

What I liked

The Home Depot call center has a wonderful environment and opportunities for growth, such as participation in the LEAD program and other positive groups/opportunities, such as Toastmasters public speaking preparation, Homer Fund charity donation, Built from Scratch Veteran Volunteer projects, and many more.

What I wish was different

I wish I has started going to school and working full time earlier than just this semester, rather that just working full time. That way I could be closer to my degree sooner and take advantage of the benefits.

Advice

Take advantage every opportunity within your power, even if it scares you. Pushing yourself our of your comfort zone is the most effective way to test yourself and provide opportunities for growth.
