About me

 

I am a mature student currently deferring my studies at London College of Communication. This is the most recent entry in my constant journey of knowledge and development. With a wealth of experienced amassed over several years I am extremely adaptable. In all situations I am able to exercise my organisational skills and solution-orientated attitude to form success. Accustomed to a busy work paces I operate well under pressure. Enjoying team work through great people skills and pushing my individual strengths to achieve targets set. Recently studying Magazine Publishing I have enquired great insider knowledge into the industry on the creative and business spectrum. Having been given information on Content, Marketing, Semiotics and Media Law I have a gained an all round base understanding that is a platform waiting to expand with experience. My level of understanding about Branding and the importance it plays in a company is part of what I bring to my work. I have a talent in being able to dissect a brands message and applying this to the tasks at hand. Upholding these values is key to any businesses success in all areas. I champion these values with the upmost professionalism to satisfy my superiors and the people I come in contact with outside of the brand. Having studied various courses in London College of Fashion not only am I aware of processes from factory to shop floor but I have a keen eye for quality in all areas. Overly familiar with trend predictions and how this influences our business decisions and the product. Being a follower of the Fashion Industry almost ten years I have a great deal of comprehension on culture and aesthetics. The Digital revolution has been a great focus of mine. I have dedicated myself on learning about how this wave of technology fits into the modern day business structure and our lives. Having attended lectures and seminars (in and out of University) I understand what this new form of communication brings and takes away from a brand. With this knowledge I’m conscious of how brands should be represented both in content and in person. I am a strong future focused candidate that is ready to be apart of your establishment. I have enclosed my CV in this email and hope that all the information finds you well. Thank you so much for reviewing me for the position and I hope to hear from you in the near future.
