My name is Jonathan and I have a bit of a story to tell here.
Last summer I was kicked out of my home due to a disagreement between the management company and the owners of the property (it had nothing to do with us; I can provide their number to verify this.)
since then, it's been a spiral downwards - my car was stolen, I was effectively forced to quit my job (New management attempted to breach my contract), and I almost ended up living - well...no where.
It's been months since and thanks to God, I've been able to stay with friends of a very generous nature and begin to rebuild my life. I now have a car (working on getting my license), and am seeking a place to live soon.
Of course, there's one thing missing - a place to work. So I am here seeking meaningful employment to get my life back on track.
The caveat to all of this is that my driver's license is expired and I don't have most of the proper paperwork to get a new one (for the time being - I'm working on it) so I can provide an expired state ID - but a valid one is a while away. (I'd be happy to explain this in more detail if you ask)
I have no criminal past, have worked in retail, as a cook, in business, dentistry, and art/media services. I've trained people from foreign cultures, new employees, and have done management duties as well. I've traveled to many places around the world and understand how to communicate effectively. I understand that words are cheap - but I can prove these things.
I'm seeking employment to get back on my feet, get a house again, provide for my cat and I (no family yet) and try to rectify the events of the last months.
I'm well spoken, able to write, a natural problem solver, musically inclined (was once a singer - now working on an album), and willing to learn new things - which I do very quickly. I would say I'm intelligent - but I despise braggarts - I'd rather prove this to people.
I have a Bachelor's in Fine Arts from KCAI with a minor in Creative and Technical writing. I just turned 31 and with the one exception of having a bad rotator cuff (I can lift nothing more than 50-60 lbs these days), am in good health and able to work.
I"m seeking a place that is willing to hire me currently with my situation as it is (Expired ID) with the understanding that I will be getting a valid ID once the pieces are there. I expect very few -if any - responses to this ad, but it's a crap-shoot I'm willing to take, in case God allows the right person to see this message.
A NOTE - my faith is a personal one, the only thing it influences in a work environment is how hard I work - which many say is more than I should. I believe in hard, earnest, and consistent work quality across the board. I work smart though - and see through the things I start.
If anyone reading this has problems with my faith - that is your choice and I understand that. Please don't hold it against me, I am who I have chosen to be. If it bothers you a great deal - then I am not the person for you.
Resume upon request (please allow about 1-2 day turn around in this) I am not leaving a phone number due to the fact that - in this same endeavor prior - I have been plagued by false hopes and spam calls. I shall trade my number once contact is made outside of CL.
Thank you for reading,
Jonathan R. Covyeau
