Re: Public Relations Department

I am interested in a job with your Public Relations Department. I am a recent graduate of Georgia Southern University in Statesboro, Ga. I have a bachelors of Science degree in recreation with a minor in public relations. I am very interested in the special events aspect of public relations however; I am open to other areas as well.

Throughout my college career I have been involved at the Baptist Collegiate Ministries (BCM); there I was selected to be the programs and events coordinator for the 2007-2008 academic year. During my time there I was responsible for the organization and implementation of a variety of events. I recruited team members and oversaw the work they did as well as managed the budget for multiple events. My responsibilities also included meeting with management from outside venues as well as meeting with my supervisors to present my plans and have them approved. In addition to my work at the BCM I also assisted with several school and community events.

I am available for an interview at your convenience and can be contacted by phone at ###-###-#### or by e-mail at
