"Must love multi-tasking."
Familiarize yourself with state and federal regulation websites. Study Study Study.

Compliance Specialist in Irving:
"Knowledge about the industry."
Going into my current job, I had the necessary skills to manage DOT compliance. I did not have enough knowledge about the oil and gas industry to better apply my skills, or to have an idea of how to become a more valuable asset to the company beyond the current position. Lack of knowledge keeps you in a box, until you aspire to study the industry on your own time. The job may not provide this training to you.
