Having become increasingly interested in politics, I am seeking a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science with a concentration in International Relations from Purdue University. As I rapidly approach my graduation date, I am looking to further my knowledge of government and politics through prospective politically driven opportunities. I hope to begin working in a political research, human resources, governmental affairs, or external relations position in order to completely immerse myself into the field and have a significant career in politics.
Without having any postgraduate involvement in politics, I realize that there is a great deal to learn about the United States government that can only be discovered from first hand involvement. I would like to learn as much as I can about this industry and to participate whenever given the opportunity. The opportunity to interact with professionals in a setting that is foreign to me would be of profound interest since the world of political administration has always been such an international field. Because I am incredibly interested in the political world, I believe that a governmental relations position would be ideal. I know my meticulous organizational skills will be crucial in fulfilling the responsibilities of this type of position.
As you can see from my resume, I have acquired experience from my academic studies. My courses include Selected Problems in World Order, Modern Weapons and International Relations, and the Structure and Functioning of the United States Congress, Regulatory Affairs, and other multiple political science courses. I also gained invaluable experience working in the Human Resources Department of a packaging and manufacturing company called Visual Pak where I managed federal employee documents and approved confidential company forms, including Non-Disclosure Agreements. Interning abroad in London also provided me with immeasurable understanding of international politics working for the Enterprise Forum as an Administrative Assistant to the Executive Director. My internship abroad challenged my prior knowledge and forced me to reach out of my comfort zone to act as a liaison between the Conservative Party and major corporations in Great Britain. You would find me a dedicated, enthusiastic, and hardworking individual determined to grow as much as possible from every experience I encounter.
