Question 1 of 35

Tell me about yourself.

"I grew up in Oklahoma City. As soon as I was legally able to, I got a job working in my grandpa's insurance office doing clerical work and data entry. By the time I turned 18, they promoted me to administrative assistant. I took a gap year before I went to college. I've always had a strong work ethic. During my four years of college, I repeated my success in high school, graduating with a 4.0-grade point average. As you can see on my resume, I worked at my last firm for eight years, and they suffered some major cutbacks. A lot of folks lost their job, but not me. Yet there were no real career advancement opportunities left, which is what me here today."
