Since before I graduated college, I have been searching for my "dream job." It didn't take me many months of submitting my resume to countless employers to realize I had no one "dream job," after noticing I had applied for a vast array of positions across the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. I want a job that challenges me, simply put. I want a job where I have to stretch my mind and challenge myself intellectually; a job where I have to dig deep and work hard to see results. I'm young, and the biggest thing I lack is years of experience at a multinational corporation that sends my resume to the top of the file. I am a hard worker and after settling for mediocre jobs, where my days run together and I find myself going through the monotonous motions every day, I'm ready for something serious. Somewhere I can commit, and really invest my time and effort. I have a lot to give, and a lot of work to accomplish, and I'm looking for an employer to realize that and invest in me, too.

I am the project sales manager for several associations' online newsletters, in charge of selling advertising space to companies on said publications. I call anywhere from 250 to 700+ qualified leads on behalf of national and international associations, and sell banner advertising. Sales range from $500 transactions to more than $10,000. I average about $20,000 in sales each month. It is my responsibility to maintain relationships with clients throughout their ad campaigns, and act as a liaison between my clients and the creative department developing their ads. I am also responsible for outside prospecting, and generating new leads other than ones provided by the association. I am also responsible for collecting payment, and authorizing and following through with any payment terms on specific transactions.

I was respoinsible for assisting in all aspects of public relations for 13 clients. Clients varied from a growing, family-owned burger joint, Kincaid's Hamburgers, to the City of Beaumont, Texas. I was responsible for single handedly creating editor deliveries, writing pitch letters and press releases, and putting together samples of clients' works to send to editors. I was also largely responsible for compiling media databases for each client. I assisted in creating a crisis communications plan for one of our clients, and helped in a pitch Tucker was giving to the City of Irving for a new business development plan.
