Entering the creative industries is like going to a casino. The potential employers play the odds hiring you. So what makes me worth your bet? My passion and my hardworking, positive attitude. I am a quick learner, willing to go above and beyond of what is expected. Fashion is a diverse industry where communication skills are a necessity, something which I have put to good use in previous work where I have dealt with various different and demanding people. I feel all these skills could only be improved by being able to be a part of such a successful and innovative company.
