The Journey Continues

As 2017 comes to an end I find myself exploring new career opportunities.  My thirst for better health insurance for my children continues.  Like many searching for a better way of life, I too find myself restricted by what can be written or noted on a traditional resume.  I am now using this, my page, to let you know about me.   No restriction or EEOC guidelines to follow.  If you ended up here, you wanted to learn more about me anyway, so I am making it simple.

My name is Robb Beltran and here are a few things you need to know about me as a person and possible employee.

I am a divorced dad who is bilingual in English and Spanish and I have been working in sales and marketing in one way or another for the last 14 years.  I have two children.  Before moving to the Dubuque, Iowa area I was a broadcast television news reporter and weather caster for almost eight years. I worked for stations in Cheyenne, WY, Peoria, IL, Youngstown, OH and Green Bay, WI.

I graduated from Illinois State University thanks to the Illinois State Veterans Grant.  I earned my grant by serving in the United States Air Force for five years and serving two tours in the Gulf War.  I am now a proud veteran and member of the VFW.

I was born and raised in Chicago.  The city, not the suburbs.  If you know anything about city life, there’s a difference. I have been performing on stage as an actor since the age of five and continue whenever possible.  I have no fear of crowds or presentations and laugh at pressure and deadlines, they only feed me.

When it comes to work all I can say is that I work hard, I like to keep busy and I am a team player.  I have worked as a dishwasher, pizza driver, demo worker and have worked a second job as a customer service specialist in a retail store for the last year.  I thought surviving the Gulf war was tough.  Dubuque shoppers love their coupons and God forbid if you don’t honor them…even if they did expire two months ago.

I love to joke and laugh and keep it light.   The daily grind in any field is hard enough with out finding the joy in every day.    I am an entertainment hound.  I love music and movies and comedy shows.  I also love watching college sports.  I am Wisconsin Badger fan although living in Iowa makes that tough.

I like to stay fit and have participated in more than 10 obstacle course races.  I think it is important to keep your mind and body as fit as possible. I was a Boy Scout den leader for five years and volunteer throughout the community as time allows. My two biggest missions have been helping in the rebuilding efforts in New Orleans after hurricane Katrina and helping a catholic mission near the capitol of Tegucigalpa Honduras.  Being a native Spanish speaker certainly comes in handy.

I am looking for an opportunity to work in the Tri-State area of Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin, but am open to all possibilities. I am looking for a full time job with good family health benefits and an atmosphere in which I will be challenged daily.   Account management, product management, training, sales, marketing… If  you think you may want a guy like me working for you, please let me know.
