I love marketing. Need I say more? Probably...
In my current role, I have had extensive, hands-on experience in a very broad and diverse range of marketing activities. From data gathering and analysis, through planning, budgeting, writing, design (and managing a designer), production, negotiations, placement, and back to analysis – I have been doing it all. And I love every part of it.
I am very analytical and enjoy extracting actionable, useful insights from data (such as surveys and sales data), though I think about problems creatively and usually prefer the simple solution. In general, I am extremely motivated to exceed expectations and to improve. I find it highly rewarding to complete projects successfully, on time, and under budget. If I do not receive feedback, I will ask for it. I work well autonomously and with little guidance (such as in my current position), though I have also led and participated in multiple teams academically, in the military, as a volunteer for Tony Robbins events, and in a residence life university environment.
Optimally, I would enjoy working in an environment like that of a small, fast-paced, challenging company where much is expected and excellence is acknowledged. I recognize that such an environment can be fostered in companies of all sizes.
