Jessica Gardner

Working as a marketing assistant at a family business for 3 and a half years. It takes a special person to work at a family business. I have been trying to do short courses partime and handed out my CV but still expectant. They tried to fire me for mid conduct but I hot reinstated and now they are trying poor performance. Anyways that doesn't define me. I am a hard worker tho have also at times been distracted. I am a caring and softish person. I am also a knowledgeable person who also likes to educate myself and grow further in the directions that I want to go in my career. I am also looking and considering and wondering how big is BEE and how is it going to affect the average white lady such as myself when I see others around me getting employed tho I am positive and optimistic that I will get better employment and my business interests will flourish.
