Introduction and Objective

As a Senior, Marketing major at Ohio Northern University, I will be graduating in the spring and looking for a job, within the vast field of marketing.

Not only do I have a variety of relevant work experience including product development and promotions, but I have also taken a number of courses outside of the standard business curruclum to make myself a more well-rounded individual and a versatile employee. Courses I have taken, while not required, pertain to the marketing field, such as:

Public Relations: Three courses in the public relations department have enhanced my writing abilities, through relevant coursework that has made me familiar with the AP Styleguide and writing press releases. Also, after taking a social media class, I have become very familiar with the tools used today, from blogs and podcasting to Facebook and Twitter.

Graphic Design: As an individual who has always doodled in notes and loved to draw, I added a drawing course to enhance my ability to communicate visually. I have self-taught knowledge of Adobe Photoshop, and always a strong appreciation for Graphic Design. Taking a Graphic Design course has enhanced my ability to use the Adobe Suite, and understand key concepts behind effective graphic design.

Please take a moment to review the full Visual CV, and venture over to my blog or Twitter account. Feel free to contact me using the information above. I look forward to helping your company meet its goals.
