From 2005 to 2010 I worked as a cashier in a supermarket in Finland. I started my work in the supermarket by stocking shelves, but gradually gained more responsibility, and by 2010 I was cashier in charge, guided summer workers and took care of the money exchange with the bank. During this time developed excellent customer service skills and learnt to deal with a lot of responsibility. From July 2007 to January 2008 after high school graduation, I worked full-time at the supermarket before leaving for Ireland as an au pair (Jan ’08). I have also worked as a telephone salesperson
