About me

 

A recent fashion business graduate with a first class honours degree from Glasgow Caledonian University. I believe to possess a personally ambitious and achievement focused attitude and I am keen to develop my gained educational knowledge from university within the workplace. I am looking to secure a position with a highly reputable company which allows myself to progress and begin a career within the fashion industry in which my passion lies. Due to the mixed element of my own personal degree of BA (Hons) Fashion Business I feel I have a lot to offer and I can visually interpret information as well as analysing against marketing and business theory. In terms of studying this degree I have a wide knowledge in business (marketing, finance, economic, public relations and human relations) and also fashion (design, production, manufacture, pricing and promotion). I am also able to juggle and prioritise work to meet specific deadlines. During my university studies I was able to transition between business and fashion subjects to meet deadlines with relative ease. To achieve this I set organised timescales within my personal planner and from this prioritised my own activities. During my final year I was also able to work two positions whilst studying and composing a dissertation thesis, showing my strong work ethic and commitment to any activity in which I am involved.
