Summary

I am a recent graduate from the University of Southern California, earning a Bachelors of Science in Business with an emphasis in marketing. During my time at USC I developed a growing interest in the media and communications industries, which I hope to apply towards being a strong candidate for your company. Through working on my degree, production minor, and previous internship experience, I sought to make sure that I would be prepared to work well in any environment regardless of the medium. I also wanted to make sure I was prepared to work in a creative market that is becoming increasingly globalized, particularly with companies that have global branches and parent companies. Aside from the general international emphasis that was proffered while at my university, I have also begun learning Japanese, and in that sense gain a greater insight for future opportunities in East Asia. I believe that my background allows me to be very flexible in meeting your needs, and I would appreciate the opportunity to discuss any possible positions you feel might match my education, interests, and level of experience.
