About Candidate

I finished my Bachelor of Science in Marine Transportation last March of 2017 but chooses to pursue working in companies related to sales and Food Industries. I had a meaningful experience working in Catering Services for Almost 3 years as a Catering Boy and after that, I decided to apply as a service Crew in a Big company like Jollibee and Mang Inasal/Finest food for almost 9 Months. So that I can Support my Self Paying my Tuition Fee in College and other expenses., After my graduation, I tried to apply as Sales Specialist in a Big Company also being a sales specialist handling B2B Distribution to spas, salons, and beauty clinics for over a year. I enjoyed working as a sales specialist, in fact, I have achieved over 100% quota on a monthly basis.

In 2019, I took a leap to work overseas as a kitchen crew/dishwasher based in Alkharj, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia under Daily Foods Company for over 2 years. My responsibilities here were to maintain kitchen tools and utensils clean and ready to use, assist the cook in preparing item orders, and Coordinate with the team to achieve branch quota. When the pandemic happened, I decided to be with my family.
Having the above experiences, in April 2022, I was hired in a cruise line under Fred Olsen based in Europe. The demand was high since the market caters to around 1200 passengers per route from one point to
destination. My responsibility here was to keep the kitchen area, plate wares, utensils, and equipment clean and sanitized at all times, perform all opening, closing, and cleaning tasks as instructed, adhere to health and Safety policies and procedures outlined in the Health and Safety Program, follow safe food handling procedures at all times and coordinate with the team on any endorsements and questions if any.

I am a dedicated and detail-oriented person eager to apply for a job that is related to my experience so that it would be easier for me to maximize my knowledge and enhance my capabilities.
