Advertising, Marketing, and PR are my strongest areas and find that I do my best work when it requires creativity. I have 2 years of work experience in various vocations
As a History and Business student at North Carolina State University, I was introduced to the competitive Business world through the completion of numerous internships. For example, during my internship at French | West | Vaughan, I served as a valuable apprentice to the Chief Marketing Officer, working as an event planner, co-account executive, and PR executive for numerous clients, including Nestea and The Mint Restaurant.
I have procured numerous other internships that have given me a great deal of experience and have thoroughly prepared me perfectly for a full-time position.I have developed leadership skills and “people skills”, both of which I can identify as two of my greatest strengths.
My prior experience has provided me with the knowledge and skills to succeed without a doubt. I look forward to hearing from you. If you have any questions regarding my qualifications, please don't hesitate to contact me.
