• Business skills:
By working at a supermarket I have obtained skills in all the different facets that a supermarket faces in its day to day running. Which include how to purchase and at what quantities, how to sell to other competitors and at what price and how to deal with salesmen when they introduce you to a new product that they firm has produced or how to bargain with them for better prices on items that you are already selling.
• Planning and organizing:
My skills in planning and organizing were developed in both the supermarket and bookkeeping firm I worked for. In every left turn or right turn you took there was planning involved because you cannot just come up with a decision and say fine you going ahead with it but rather you have to think is this going to work if you do it like this, an example would be when you purchased a new product and are introducing it to the shop floor you have to decide on where you are going to put it and at what price you going to sell it in order for it to kick of well. I also gained experience in planning and organizing when I helped in putting a fundraising dinner and what ever other tasks that the organization that I belong to on university known as the Muslim Student Association decide on doing and putting together.
