Minerva Leah Williams

I wish to pursue a career in sales with an emphasis on new markets. I am especially gifted in phone sales, obtaining new accounts and growing with a stable team-based media company. For mutual benefit, I will bring self-motivation, great attitude, problem solving skills, and conflict resolution success. As a highly


Self-motivated individual there will be no need for prodding and little coaching. Once I apply my Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, presentation and heavy event and seminar experience with passion, you will see how helping others doubles your telecommunication and web sales goals. I am willing to travel. We discuss strategies, we apply direct marketing, and relationship selling that will exceed your bottom-line expectations.

CAREER GOAL: Senior Sales Coordinator in Advertising, Community Outreach, Media, or Sales.
