Summary

Hi, my name is Jeffrey Pollock. I'm a senior advertising student in the University of Oregon's School of Journalism and Communication and will be graduating in December of 2010. I am passionate about working in the journalism industry, and seek to make a positive impact in the advertising world.

UO’s Senior Experience program selected me to be one of its 20 students to take classes part-time at the University of Oregon's Turnbull Center in downtown Portland and intern at an organization.

Currently, I am interning at Davis Elen Advertising and living in the Portland Metro area.  My experience, education and drive to succeed will make me an asset to an interested company.

Thank you for your time to review my portfolio and experience, and please let me know if you have any questions or know of opportunities.

"As one of the top students in my class, Jeff was dedicated to turning out top rate solutions to the challenges that were presented to him. He worked diligently to create concepts and layouts that really expressed his ability to produce creative and engaging solutions. He was able to show that he could think critically and has good advertising instincts through his participation in the review of his peers' work. If his performance in my class is any indication of how he will succeed, I feel confident he would be an asset to your organization."
