Objective

To obtain an internship position with a soccer association to further my knowledge in soccer and coaching while using my communication, writing, and Public Relations skills.

Interest

Working with Soccer

  • I have been playing for 15+ years and am playing in college. I have a true passion for soccer.

Personal Contact

  • I am a people person and love being around people; this would use my good communication skills.

Recruit

  • I want to find soccer players to come to the organization I work for and travel around the country to meet  them.

Coach

  • Because I have been playing for so long, I have a lot of knowledge about the game and want to teach others.

Public Relations

  • I enjoy working with the public and designing flyers and such for them to see in order to make the company's image positive and stronger.

Summary

I am currently a sophomore at Queens University in Charlotte. I am majoring in Organizational Communications with a concentration in Psychology.

I am involved in many clubs and organizations on campus, such as the Peer Leaders, which is a program offered to tutor freshmen students and learn about leadership. I have also been involved in many volunteering sites through Queens, such as the Martin Luther King Jr. Volunteer Day. I participated in 2009 and plan to do so in 2010; a group of students volunteered at a women's shelter on this day last year.

I am on the soccer team and am very passionate about soccer. I have learned a lot through being on a team and learning how to work with other people and how to become a leader on the team. I have also learned valuable life skills such as motivation, perseverance, and time management.

I am looking for an internship while I am in college to experience the soccer field more to decide if it is the right career for me. I want to be very hands on in my internship and learn a lot of new things in order to receive the most beneficial experience.

In the long-term, I would like to see myself as being a coach in a big soccer association; I would be in charge of coaching as well as dealing with the public. I am very interested in Public Relations and would like to see myself doing both.
