As you can see on my resume, the majority of my work experience has come from a public relations internship in London, England at APR Communications. My internship taught me how to adapt quickly in new situations, communicate effectively with all types of people, balance a rigorous work load, and, most notably, develop and manage complex projects independently, creatively, and effectively. During my internship, I primarily worked to orchestrate an event at the Tower of London and another at Hampton Court Palace. Additionally, I assisted in the composition of press releases, press kits, feature articles, and persuasive pitch letters to run stories on high- end fashion and lifestyle brands such as Girard- Perregaux, Vilebrequin, and Descamps. This position afforded me an in-depth understanding of the important and varied behind- the- scenes work that goes into marketing and public relations.
Furthermore, by living and working in London, I gained invaluable insight from a nation of forward thinking and diligent work ethic. All of those skills have assisted in my successful graduation from university in May 2010. During university, I was an active student leader in both the larger campus community and within my department of study. I am very eager to further apply my degree to a career in marketing, advertising, or public relations. I would like to find a position with a compelling, demanding, and fast-paced environment where I can continue to grow and thrive.
I have an extremely strong work ethic and a proven capacity for meeting objectives and demands with a high degree of tenacity, which I am certain will contribute to the future development of your organization. The combination of my academic training and previous work experience affirms not only my attention to detail, and my ability to balance a heavy work load while remaining organized and focused; but also my ability to learn skills quickly and implement them successfully. I look forward to discussing how I will be able to translate those same skill sets to a position with your organization.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about my application.
