    Pros

    Loving to meet new people and having the skills to work at a fast paste. Being a good listeninger and work as a team.

    Keeping an open mind. Knowing when to lead and knowing how to let someone help you when needed. Being able 2 troubleshoot a problem in a timely manor but more of all, being able to listen.
