  3. 3. Vanessa Ilka Rodriguez Office Administrator What are you most proud of at CCS? “When I first started working at CCS I had two main goals for myself. One was to help CCS become involved in more charity work, and for me as the office administrator to provide more opportunities for them to do so. The second goal was to make people feel joyful, appreciated and comfortable with me. I was quite nervous because I knew I had big shoes to fill for my position. Everyone was so used to Bob’s way, that I worried that my way of doing things would make people feel disappointed. But I have always been one to believe that you have to be yourself no matter where you go, or who you meet. I am quite proud of myself for working towards achieving both of these goals every day, in every way I can, and I think CCS will really see this in full effect in 2015.”

Ray is a great role model for the working woman as well as she seems to seamlessly balance her profession and family life – with her husband and 2 children.

From the moment I set foot on company ground in mid- November, I knew there was client transitioning that was being assorted and assigned and I would have about 1.5 months without being fully dedicated to accounts. I used that time to build relationships, understand the business and most importantly see how I could fill a gap and contribute to company growth and success. The gap that I set out to fill was to partner with the BD team to ramp up our CES strategy for mining for prospects. Working in lock step with the BD team not only helped me get hands on with the business and accelerated my learning curve, but also proved to the CCS team of my dedication to the company and my passion for being a team player.”

I immediately began looking for ways that I could contribute up and above my job description. Many of these duties are now are part of my day-to-day job description. I would say that my proudest accomplishment was singlehandedly researching, planning and coordinating our annual “Build Day” with Habitat for Humanity.
