Reccomendation Letter

Erin Page (Superior)

Oklahoma Heritage Association

Director of Communications and Marketing

"Emiley has two of the qualities I most admire in student interns - the respect to listen carefully to the ideas and needs of her colleagues and the confidence to share her own ideas.  She is both professional and approachable at all times.

Emiley's performance as an intern has been stellar.  She is not afraid to be challenged, try new things or ask questions when she needs more information.  She is always punctual, ready to work hard and eager to help the staff in any way she can.  One of the things I really appreciate about her is her ability to see new ways to improve our marketing or public relations for our programs, and then be willing to execute. 

In addition to her professional skills, Emiley truly has a passion for serving others.  As is evidenced by the may volunteer activities on her resume, she is constantly searching to use her talents to benefit those around her.  Whether at work, school or extracurricular activities, she is an extremely hard worker who always places others before herself.  Emiley's ambition, optimism and confidence are assets to every organization that enjoys the benefit of her service."

Objective

I'm looking for a position as a communication/marketing professional with an organization where I can make a fundamental difference and I can grow with the company.
