My name is Molly Walker and I am excited to pursue a career in public relations/advertising. I am looking to bring my positive energy and enthusiasm for learning to a creative team where I can utilize my skills and gain a deeper hands-on knowledge of brand development. My professional goal is to develop a career path towards communication strategy and brand analytics. Throughout different projects during my schooling, I conducted research studies focused on participants' perceptions, gathered results, and developed conclusions based off of various communication theories. For example, I have attached my thesis, "Fired or Hired: The Effect of User's Facebook Content in the Job Search" to the bottom of this Visual CV. For this project, I performed research, created a study, interviewed participants, and analyzed and compiled my findings for a thesis paper and presentation prior to graduation.  What I discovered was that each individual's Facebook page is a form of their very own brand. This study led me to an interest in branding, for both individuals and corporations, and I hope to build on my learning and passion for brand research in a future career.
