Dear Sir, This is in response to the questions you asked me prior to short listing.
Why an Insurance Company? I applied to your insurance company generally because I possess Administrative experience in an organizational setting. I worked for a real estate company directly with the owner and broker of the company. I was involved in a lot of prospecting and I made a lot of cold calls that generated high end listings for the company. My understanding of insurance is that insurance is a form of risk managemement primarily used to hedge against risk of a contingent, uncertain loss. My interest to work for an insurance company has to do with my interest in customer satisfaction and keeping up with the credibility the cooperators has built with their existing customers for as long as they have existed with the company. My honesty and efficiency will help me build up my skills and in the process of my studies hopefully pursue other positions within my field in the company.
The Co-operators have been in existence since 1945 and are one of the fastest growing insurance providers in business. I see the potential of learning and acquiring quality experience and also career growth within this company and my eagerness to learn and input my strengths into the success of the company is my aim and plan for starting at the basic step as an administrative assistant. It will be a pleasure and honor working for a reputable insurance company such as yours.
Do you think you would be comfortable cross –selling, up-selling, making prospecting calls? Why? Why not?
I am absolutely comfortable with cross-selling, up-selling and making prospecting calls. Cross –selling and up-selling usually involves existing customer accounts and customers who are interested...

International Business

...Dear Sir / Madam, I am college student at TheUniversity in Germany, where I follow “International Business and Management Studies” . For one of my courses, I have an assignment to interview a company where ICT is used significantly. The first thing that came in my head when I wanted to start this assignment was “Facebook”. Facebook has become one of the leading social network in the world. But behind this great company lies a mass of people who have realized it, and today employees do their best to improve this network. My mission for my course is to have an interview with a company like yours. For my assignment I made a few questions, I will be pleased if you can answer them. 1. Which operating system is currently being used, are there plans to change or update in the future? If so which new operating system will be used and when? 2. Which Office Application system is currently being used? Indicate the presentation of workers who use each application, (for example e-mail (Outlook) -100%) Are there plans to upgrade or change, if so when? 3. Which other ICT applications are used within the company and why? (Think about databases, CRMs, portals) 4. Where does the company see the future going to (in regards to ICT) 5. Does the company encourage home-workers and what facilities do they offer. 6. When an employee starts working (graduation at HBO level) what ICT skills are important for that employee to have. And if you can give a short interview about yourself...

Beloved

...FINDER I love the idea of using the Greek word for Finder as the main character’s name… maybe that could even work into the title? The headlines are talking. They say that there are only an estimated 6000 Followers left worldwide and about 10 percent of them may be found in North America. China claims to have wiped them out altogether, while India believes that they can be rehabilitated. Those headlines were from two days ago blaring through my Blue Tooth and YAHWEH alone knows how many of us are left. But after 80 - 100 years of persecution, since the Government’s war on the Followers, we’ve learned how to hide in plain sight. It takes a lot more money living in The Cities than in the communes where I was raised. But after they found our camp, about forty people strong, maybe 34 of us all told were BORNAGAINSAVED. The others were people we’d find on the road hungry, alone, broken; designated appointments from YAHWEH – well after they found our camp . . . well, I’ve been living in cities since then. They called us something else then, but the name has been lost. Now they just call us walking dead or religious trash. Either way it’s all the same. If they catch us, then it’s the Big Show: no ifs, ands, or but’s. Even on the news feeds, we’re “they,” or “suspects,” or “fanatics” and never our names. We’re the nameless ones. That’s how we can tell true Followers from the government plants they keep sending us. You can tell by the scars we carry. Many of us grow our......

Elie Wiesel: A Short Story

...Lionel’s men remained cold and aloof toward him ever since the incident with Alis. Even Perceval and Gawain remained distant, though Merlin and Ulrich remained supportive. Following late-morning sword drills, Lionel slurped lukewarm soup in his chamber, eschewing the midday meal in the Hall with his men. After he finished the last spoonful, he sat back and absently stared out his window as the sun bathing the landscape. He noticed his trousers seemed loose and he tightened the ties. Since his falling out with Alis, his appetite dulled and he’d lost weight. Lionel’s door creaked open and he spun around. There stood Berth with a bucket and scrub brush. She had the same look on her face so many other women had when they glanced at him—pity. “Sir Lionel, might I come in and clean? It’s a lovely day. Perhaps you could use some sunshine while I work in here?” What he wanted to do was crawl into bed and wallow, but he’d made excuses for days about how he had “work to do” and could not be distracted by cleaning. “Of course, Berth. Take your time.” Lionel affixed his swordbelt and cloak. Out in the corridor, Star, Pawl’s dog, bounded up to Lionel and pounced on Lionel, wagging her tail and licking his face. Shaking his head, Pawl came along. “Sorry about that. She is a touch overexuberant. And she clearly likes you.” “She’s about the only one these days.” Lionel scratched behind Star’s ears. “Oh, that’s not true. People will forget all about your issue and move on soon......

Heroes of the Ages: Comparison and Contrast of Medival Ages

...hero and medieval hero will be the focus of this essay. Three great heroes from the early classic to medieval periods are Beowulf, Achilles, and Sir Gawain. The paper will look at the similarities and differences of literary heroes in order to discover how heroes changed over time. Beowulf and Sir Gawain are romantic heroes full of bravery, loyalty, humility, courage, and virtue. Beowulf and Sir Gawain were both involved in battles of great magnitude and admired for their super human strength. Both of them battle with the intent to bring honor to the King: Sir Gawain to honor King Arthur and Beowulf to honor Hrothgar. The battles they fight are against good and evil, “Grendel is a shepherd of evil” and the Green Knight represents pre- Christian tribal paganism. The custom of the time period was to keep their word and honor the one who helped them rise to knighthood. Beowulf kept his word as seen in the poem as he returns from the adventures and presents all his gifts to Hygelac as a sign of loyalty (line 2145). Sir Gawain keeps his word with Lord Bertilak, by agreeing to exchange their winnings at the end of each day (Sir Gawain 1105-1113). Beowulf and Sir Gawain differ as heroes in several ways. First, Sir Gawain is an Arthurian Hero and as such holds to a Christian faith while Beowulf holds to the pagan history of Britain. Sir Gawain draws strength from his devotion to Christ and the five social graces of generosity, brotherly love, chastity, courtesie, and piety.......

To Be Human Then and Now

...To Be a Human- Then and Now Throughout the span of time humankind has asked the question: What does it mean to be human? Some of the world’s greatest men have contemplated over this question and there are a vast number of theories on what makes a human. A scientist might take a more literal opinion of the question, thinking that we are human because we are higher on the evolutionary chain; we are physically, emotionally and mentally complex. While others might take a more philosophical position on the matter, like René Descartes who originally spoke the famous phrase: “I think, therefore I am”. A philosopher would value the fact that humans can intelligently communicate their thoughts, and these thoughts can change the very existence of man as a whole through invention and innovation. Religious groups would base their opinion of humans on their faith; we are human simply because we are not God. At times science, philosophy and religion can confuse a person opinion on what it actually means to be human. Maybe the concept of being human is much simpler then some may think. Being human could simply mean that we as a collective race are imperfect. The idea of human imperfection is not easily explained by science, philosophy or religion. They can all sometimes be too complex to understand. Science exemplifies the human race as a species, philosophy praises human race as thinkers and religion looks at the human race as sinners and how we all must be perfect to please......

Sir Gawain and the Green Knight Essay

...Honor and Courage Persevere The poem Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, translated by John Gardner, is set in the Middle Ages. This was a time in history when people focused on the values and ideals of the Code of Chivalry, a code of honor intended to govern knightly behavior. As Arthur and his knights get together to feast and celebrate Christmas and the new year their festivities were interrupted by a man of green who wandered about searching for adventure so that he can disprove his chivalry. The two values that are most clearly stated in the poem are courage and honor. It will become clear by the actions of the characters that courage and honor is shown in several different areas of the poem. According to the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary, courage is defined as “mental or moral strength to venture, persevere, and withstand danger, fear, or difficulty.” Courage can be shown in a variety of ways. In this particular instance the Green Knight challenged King Arthur or any of the knights of the roundtable to take his ax and hit his bare neck. He said to them, “And I will stand still for your stroke, steady on the floor, / provided you honor my right, when my inning comes, / to repay” (Sir Gawain and the Green Knight 213). Clearly, the Green Knight shows a tremendous amount of courage, knowing the danger that it is going to befall him if one of the knights takes up the ax to his neck. Sir Gawain is another instance where courage was lost and then found. After a year,......

Sir Gawain and the Green Knight

...“Sir Gawain and the Green Knight” follows the classic tale of a knight accepting a challenge and the journey that the challenge takes him on. While on this challenge Sir Gawain is tested and finds about the price of pride and sin. Throughout the story there are repeated references to the color green and the girdle that he uses to hide from his fate. The color and the girdle are symbolic, with the green representing man’s connection to nature and his primal instincts, and the girdle representing man’s sin, as well as his desire to redeem himself of that sin. The color green is mentioned throughout the course of the story. When the mysterious knight interrupts Arthur’s feast on New Year’s Eve, “he was clad all in green…hose had he of the same green…and all his vesture was verily green” (“Sir Gawain”). When this is combined with the fact that he carries a holly branch in one hand and an axe in the other, this large green knight is closer to an element of nature than a regular man. Green also comes into the story in the later meeting place. The Green Knight tells Sir Gawain to meet him in the Green Chapel. The chapel is described as being in the wild, “all overgrown with grass,” clearly another connection to nature, and the fact that the grass is taking over can be seen as symbolic as Gawain’s survival instinct increasing (“Sir Gawain”). The more he is in this setting, the stronger his desire to escape becomes and he has to use all of his courage to stay and search out the......

Carnivalesque Features in Sir Gawain and the Green Kinght

...Carnivalesque features in Sir Gawain and the Green Knight: Games and Challenges Whenever Carnival is mentioned, whether it is on Mikhail Bakhtin’s work: Rabelais and his world on any other document, it is said that it was considered to be a second life for people of the Middle Ages. It was an opportunity for them to laugh, eat a lot, enjoy themselves and escape from the rigidity of the feudal system. There are many features that are characteristic of the carnival, such as big banquets of food, inversion of social classes, humourists, lots of singing and laughing. Throughout this essay, I will focus on one of the features that called my attention when I first read one of the better-known Arthurian stories: Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, the games. I will explore some of the challenges proposed throughout this romance. Whenever we play a game, whichever it is, we intend to win or to get something out of it. However, I will demonstrate that in this period and by playing tournaments and challenging themselves, people were not exactly looking forward to defeating their opponent or win money, but what they wanted the most was to forget about their original role in society, act as equals, feel liberated and mainly have fun. Let us begin with one of the first proposal for amusement initiated by King Arthur on his court: ‘His noble announcement that he never would eat On such a fair feast-day till informed in full Of some unusual adventure, as yet untold, Of some......

The Role of Lady Bertilak in Sir Gawain and the Green Knight

...The Role of Lady Bertilak in Sir Gawain and the Green Knight The role of women was a key role in medieval times. In the poem of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, two women represent this role. They are Lady Bertilak, who is Lord Bertilak’s wife, and Morgan La Faye. It all starts when Sir Gawain is welcomed to Lord Bertilak’s castle and then he meets these two women living there. At all times, Bertilak requests Gawain to feel at home and socialize with these women without problems. Bertilak trusts Gawain even though he would be away and Gawain would remain alone with women. However, his nameless wife uses many different ways to chase Sir Gawain and take advantage of her condition as the host’s wife. Lady Bertilak is a superior being that uses seduction and a supernatural power as a tool to hunt Sir Gawain in order to break his Christian, chivalric and loyal codes. Scholars, that I’ll mention it later, agree that women can emotionally manipulate men, but lacked political power in real life. In Sir Gawain and the Green Knight poem is represented by two women mentioned above. “Morgan the Goddess therefore is now her name; none has such high haughtiness that she cannot make full tame” (¶ 98, P. 83). Even though Morgan la Faye, considered to be “The Goddess”, does not appear much in the poem, she represents a certain passive feminine power. Nonetheless, Lord Bertilak’s wife is shown as an active feminine power. She embodies a male character and specifically in the room......
