Dear Ms. Bixel,
In response to your posting for a Social Media and Marketing Assistant, I would like to extend my application for the position. As you will note, I have earned my bachelorâ€™s degree in journalism, am presently pursing a graduate certificate in social media and online communities and have worked in a variety of industries. My education and experiences have prepared me very well to take on this role with Detox Kitchen and Juice Bar.
As a Copywriter and Marketing Assistant at Toysmith, I was charged with writing brand copy for marketing and advertising purposes. In addition, I assisted in developing content for the companyâ€™s newly designed website. While wearing many different hats in this position, I was the sole individual responsible for constructing packaging, instruction manual and catalog copy, proofing minute product details and writing social media posts and press releases.
In a very different role as a Program Planning and Scheduling Analyst at Northrop Grumman, I am responsible for updating and maintaining multiple schedules to account for major program goals. While tracking activities and milestones across a multitude of disciplines, I am responsible for collecting project status from people at a variety of professional levels within the program.
In earning my undergrad in journalism at Gonzaga University, I have been equipped with excellent communication skills, a keen attention to detail, as well as the ability to work under pressure on multiple assignments to meet strict deadlines. My present studies have enabled me to implement a successful marketing strategy for an entertainment brand. While my reputable organization skills contribute to my productivity, I have also been trained to excel in a very high stress environment.
As a staff writer and editor for the Gonzaga Bulletin, I was often assigned stories at the last minute with a very short deadline. While I also had numerous commitments to my academics, I always prioritized successfully in order to complete my tasks. My impeccable problem solving and research skills have led me to be highly successful in my many endeavors.
My resume will provide you with more details of my experience and accomplishments. The opportunity for an interview would be greatly welcomed and is the best way to discuss how my employment would be a positive asset. I greatly appreciate your consideration and look forward to hearing from you in the near term.
Megan A. Stoudt
