Laura Candelaria


My range of experience is wide; I've worked with advertising agencies and branding specialists as well as motivational seminar speakers and independent construction companies. My experience here and at previous places of employment, listed in my resume, have given me extensive skills in multitasking, handling heavy call duties, accounting, copy writing and proofreading, working with computers and maintaining an organized working environment. I feel that my background in marketing would make me a valuable asset to your team.

In addition to my previous receptionist and assistant work, I’ve worked hand in hand with clients and customers making sure that their happiness was the number one priority. I work well with others but am also a self-starter and can work with little direction. Also, my work with advertising agencies has let me develop a strong marketing background. I am also comfortable with graphics and editing software (including Photoshop), am knowledgeable of basic HTML, SEO and feel very confident in my social media skills including blogging.

I am currently in the process of moving from San Diego to Los Angeles but could begin working at anytime.

I come with excellent references that are available upon request. I’m looking forward to hearing from you.
