To obtain a position in event planning that would utilize my organizational skills, communication experience or background, and customer service experience.


My name is Corlyn McDermott, and I am a recent graduate of Longwood University. I have worked toward a degree in communications, and look forward to working in the event planning industry. I enjoy a challenge and look forward to contributing to a winning team. I have great interpersonal skills, being creative and thinking outside the box, and enjoy developing and coming up with new and better ideas to help clients.


Records Keeping/Paper Management
While serving senior class secretary in high school, I developed a need and appreciation for organizational skills. While working for the Federal Air Marshal Service, I set up hard copy and electronic records keeping systems to organize and track several official filing requirements. At the Conservatory Ballet and Shoppe, I set up and maintained an inventory tracking system for large merchandise inventory.
Throughout my years at Longwood University, I have been a leader and a co-leader for group projects. I have been a leader for a persuasive advertisement plan and a co-leader for a fundraiser.
Customer Service
I have had a good amount of customer service experience throughout my years of working. I have had the opportunity to work with a diverse group of people. My customer service skills were utilized during my time at working at the Conservatory Ballet and Shoppe. I have also learned to use my skill in interacting with my school advisors and work superiors.
