Summary of Experiences and Services

• The coursework and projects that I’ve completed in my business classes required a great deal of numerical analysis and detailed evaluation, thereby giving me a strong foundation to build upon with your company.
• I’ve assisted in conducting several focus groups and surveys for marketing research classes, including a study about the usage of cell phones amongst college students. On a team of four, I was responsible for the analysis of all data gathered during the primary research segment of our project.
• My public relations experience has strengthened my ability to present in front of an audience, work well within a team and to ensure all necessary key points are clearly displayed and stated.
• My journalism background ensures that all recommendations and communications materials will be well written and tailored appropriately for each individual client.
• Additionally, my time in the magazine journalism sequence has fostered my love for creative, innovative writing.
• During my time as a guest services representative, I’ve learned to listen to guest issues and concerns, take the steps necessary to solve and abate them and ultimately deliver exceptional service in a fast-paced environment.
