About me

 

I am a motivated, enthusiastic and creative English and American Literature graduate seeking an opportunity to build a career in public relations. I am confident that my writing and social media skills could positively contribute in this sector, and I would welcome the opportunity to gain valuable experience. I am a reliable, friendly individual with my work experience primarily in publishing and administration, and I have had various jobs that are mainly in customer services within the retail and hospitality industries. I am looking for a career where I can work in a creative environment, engage with new people, and persevere towards a graduate or entry-level position where I am able to learn about the industry as a whole, and, in turn, offer my skills and enthusiasm for an opportunity to prove myself as an imaginative and competent individual.
