To begin a career in advertising or public relations where I assist with developing and communicating messages to the public.

I am well-versed in the principles of Integrated Marketing Communications, as well as the new directions advertising and PR are going in. I'm confident I would be an intelligent, youthful, professional, and inquisitive addition to your team.
