Office Assistant at Duke TIP

As Office Assistant at the Duke TIP Summer Studies Program office at Austin College, my daily responsibilities were flexible to the needs of other administrative staff members, but primarily included fielding parent questions and concerns, preparing student arrival and departure airport schedules, and creating and enforcing protocols for the office, including those related to the security of confidential student records. Additionally, I finalized tasks as directed by the Operations Coordinator and oversaw the work of Residential Counselors on office duty. Due to the non-traditional work schedule associated with a summer camp, I was responsible for ensuring clear routes of conversation between departments whose schedules may not overlap as well as organizing communication between the On-Site Office and the National Office.

I also developed familiarity with Microsoft Excel data entry, functions, and graphing.

Cashier at NCG Cinemas

As a cashier, I was responsible for interacting with guests to sell tickets, food, and beverages. Cashiers were also the first touchpoint for customer questions and complaints, both in person and over the phone. Additionally, I utilized suggestive selling to up-sell combos and individual popcorns/drinks to larger sizes. Communication was integral to the job, as ensuring that guests, cashiers, ushers, and managers all had a clear understanding of the amount of tickets available for each show and the current status of all auditoriums.
