About Carisa Carlton

I am looking for ANY opportunity that can effectively utilize my core skills. To discuss potential opportunities call 323-999-1376 or email mscarisa@gmail.com. I accept all legitimate requests to connect on LinkedIn where you can view my career history.

 

In efforts to create a somewhat objective summary identifying my core skills, I created an informal, unscientific survey.

To reflect opinions based upon broad collective experiences, a sample of people spanning Generation Z to the Silent Generation were posed the simple question via email, “Off the top of your head, don’t spend time thinking about it, quick-quick, what do you perceive as my top 3 core skills?”

Respondents were those who have known me anywhere from 1 month to 48 years, and those who know me in business and/or pleasure.

I did not analyze the responses but I found the raw data insightful and reliable enough to share with those making a decision about interacting with me.
