With an Associates degree in Fashion Merchandising Management and a future Bachelor's degree in Advertising & Marketing Communications, I've been able to adapt both business like skills and creative skills. These skills vary from analytical thinking and learning to work with important computer programs like Microsoft Office to more creative skills like organizing events, comprehending the media and all it's usage, developing writing skills to promote a product, brand or company and many more. I was able to put the majority of these skills to practice as a sales associate at Tani, a shoe boutique, and throughout my experience volunteering for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.
Apart from the skill-set my education has provided for me, my experiences working at these places provided me with skills in communications, interpersonal and organizational skills. Skills which have allowed me to communicate well with others, understand people, follow directions, value a team based working environment and understand the value of the customer to a company. My experiences have also further polished my organizational skills for which I've valued tidiness, punctuality, attention to detail, the importance in planning and arranging and most importantly meeting deadlines.
I realize that my job experiences, as well as my resume, may not sufficiently convey my qualifications. But, I would appreciate the opportunity to demonstrate how my experiences with others and love for customer service, could have a positive impact on your company.
