Tiffany Lovelady

Job/Internship & Career Goals

My name is Tiffany Lovelady.  I am currently a Senior at Fort Hays State University.  I will be graduating in May with a Bachelor's Degree in Communication Studies with an emphasis in Advertising.  I am looking for either an internship or a position where I could use the skills I have learned at FHSU.  I have included examples of my work and information about me. If your company could use a hard working and creative person to join your team please consider my application. 

  I have always been encouraged to “think outside the box."  I really did not understand the concept until my first semester in college when I was enrolled in Graphic Design I. That is when I realized I thought differently than the rest of the world.  I was surrounded by extremely creative people who made me feel right at home.  I like to challenge myself, my classmates, and my professors so that I am able to gain the most knowledge as possible.

    I have always been "the leader."  Whether it's in life or the classroom I am the first to speak up and say "OK, let's do this!" I would say one of my best qualities is being organized. There have been many instances when I am involved in a group project, where I take the initiative and speak my thoughts. I also try to get the others to tell me what they really think. I want to be able to present my own ideas, but also feed off other's thoughts and ideas so we as a group can "get to it!"

    A position or internship would be an excellent opportunity to hone my advertising skills. I am excited to see what it’s actually like working in the advertising industry. If you choose to give me this opportunity, I will gain relevant experience in advertising.  Creative design is my main interest. I would love to join your company so I can be given the chance to separate myself from the faceless pack and use my creativity to stand out. All facets of the advertising industry, such as print/broadcast production, brand strategy, and media buying/planning are areas I would like to gain experience in.
