My name is Dana Murphy and I am currently a senior attending West Virginia University. I will be graduating in May from the Eberly College of Arts and Sciences with a bachelor’s degree in Communication Studies. I am interested in acquiring a job in my future in a field related to sales, marketing, or administration.
My current job as a sales associate at Rue 21, a retail clothing company, has helped me develop my strong communication skills.I am knowledgeable in assisting customers, working as a team, and promoting my job to the best of my ability.I worked to hone my communication skills in the past, also, working as a gymnastics teacher to children of various ages.Also since January of 2010 I have been an intern at LocalUp Solutions LLC here in Morgantown, West Virginia.Interning for Dubvmenus, more specifically, I have advanced my customer service, sales, and promotional techniques.
I have participated in a volunteer program called the Kaleidoscope after school program to gain credit for my major.As an active member, I visit Skyview Elementary School twice a week and work with young kids, assisting them with homework help, keeping them physically active and also teaching them the basic gymnastics skills that I have acquired teaching gymnastics in the past.
I hope that the skills I have attained from my previous employers, paired with my strong writing, reading, and communication knowledge that I have gained in the classroom over the past four years will make me an asset to a future employer.I have gained experience in many different aspects of my life that I believe will make me a very valuable employee.
I am a motivated, independent, and driven individual with lots to offer and learn.I look forward to my future in the work force.
