House-sitter looking for a position Hello, My name is Ben and I am interested in a house-sitting position on SJI. I am a very responsible person who is qualified for the job for the following reasons:

1. I am detail oriented. I have the capacity to focus for extensive times on defined tasks and execute them with precision. For example, when I was a land surveyor I took measurements and logged them in a very precise manner wherein a mistake of even 1” could have been detrimental.

2. I can make decisions under stress. Even when there is a lot going on and the stakes are high, I have the ability to stay level headed and make clear judgment decisions. For example, as a sea kayak guide, there have been many times when I have had to act quickly and decisively in high stress scenarios to ensure the safety of guests when weather and current conditions have taken a turn for the worst.

3. I am independently motivated and can make decisions for myself if/when necessary. This is an especially important skill that I developed as a sea kayak guide. Every morning I was in charge of deciding what time to launch the boats and take breaks according to winds, currents and my own judgments about the physical abilities of my clients.

4. I can learn anything quickly. My ability to assimilate new information was sculpted by my 4 years in university. Each class that I took was taken in series rather than in parallel. As such, I would take one intensive class per month. This allowed me to gain the skill of rapidly absorbing subjects in just a manner of weeks and mastering the basics in a month. I have no doubt that I would be able to learn the specific responsibilities of this job.

Furthermore, my character can be judged by my numerous positive reviews on trip advisor ( and by my resume and references if so desired. Thank you, Ben Henkel posted 09/23
