I hope this helps and clarifies. Please use the SEND or REPLY button to keep chatting, or please RATE when finished. You may always ask follow ups at no charge after rating. Kindly rate my answer as one of TOP THREE FACES/STARS and then SUBMIT, as this is how experts get credit for our time. Rating my answer the bottom two faces/stars (or failing to submit the rating) does not give me credit and reflects poorly on me, even if my answer is correct. I work very hard to formulate an informative and honest answer for you; please reciprocate my good faith with a positive rating.

Expert:  Aaron replied 1 year ago.
I am pretty familiar with all the standard office equipment such as phone, email, and fax, and also when they are integrated into people's emails as well (i.e. efax). From my experience, I am very good at multitasking and I take pride in being able to do work quickly and efficiently.
I follow instructions from superiors well, but also can make decisions when needed, if needed.
