You’re as persistent as you are persuasive and can always find a way to “yes”.

You have an innate sense of intellectual curiosity that drives your need to be constantly learning and taking on new challenges.  

You’re intrinsically motivated and do what it takes reach your goals.  

You work well in a fast-paced team environment and enjoy creating rewarding relationships with the people that you work with.
