Nawal is originally from Saudi Arabia and moved to the United States for college after completing high school in Pakistan. With original aspirations of becoming a doctor, Nawal soon learned that her passion and strengths were with numbers and operations, so she wasted no time re-directing her studies to business with an emphasis in finance.
Instilled with a strong work ethic, Nawal has gained over two years of business experience during college, working as a Student Aid, Campus Tour Guide, and Administrative Assistant in the Immigration Services Department. Now, with the ability to complete her degree on-line, she set her sights on securing a long-term temporary job in the finance world while continuing to work towards her Bachelor’s Degree in Business.
In a tight candidate market, J. Kent Staffing was tasked with finding an entry level candidate for our Westminster client’s Receptionist / Escrow Assistant position. With advanced MS Office, strong communication skills, and can-do attitude, Nawal was the number one choice for this long-term temporary assignment, with a possible foot-in-the-door opportunity to the world of finance.
Escrow Assistants require strong detail orientation, accuracy, consistency, and strong numbers and math skills. However, just as important in today’s workplace are those highly sought after soft skills that helped secure the position for Nawal — attention to detail, people oriented, and great customer service skills.
Escrow assistants typically work for title companies, escrow companies, and banks that hold property or money as third parties to real estate and other financial transactions. In general, escrow assistants are responsible for providing clerical support during the opening, maintaining, and closing of escrow accounts.
