|Professional Skills -|
Hi there! My name is Jennifer Watson and I am a Canadian on a working holiday visa in Australia. I have recently worked at a juice and smoothie bar in Byron Bay for four months as a customer service professional and all-rounder, and have extensive previous experience in similar positions and as a kitchen hand. I have also gained a working knowledge of coffee-making that I am eager to improve upon and perfect. I love working in under pressure and in a team-oriented environment, and I am a fast learner and keen to take on new tasks. I enjoy interacting with and meeting people, and am eager to continue to do so in a front of house position that allows me the opportunity to talk to new people ever day.
After completing my year in Australia, I plan to do another working holiday visa in New Zealand, after which I will pursue a master's degree in international development back home in Canada.
