Through my undergraduate studies and membership in both academic and athletic organizations, I acquired strong skills and relevant knowledge that will help me succeed in communication and team related responsibilities. The internship position that I held at McKendree University’s Communications and Marketing office allowed me to apply my knowledge in this field. I had the opportunity to work closely with clients on campus and develop professional relationships. In addition, I have been working in sales for three years using the interpersonal communication skills I’ve learned to connect with customers and promote brand awareness.
I now have experience creating and managing content for various forms of media, such as magazine articles, graphic designing, and contributing to social media campaigns. In addition, I was able to enhance both my photography and writing skills through my previous internship position and projects through McKendree’s academic program. I also worked closely with our student led newspaper, from which I graduated as the Assistant Editor. Through an internship with Vector Marketing, I demonstrated the abilities I have learned throughout my studies to help with recruitment and team building.
