 To
whom
it
may
concern,

 

 I
know
first
hand
what
it
takes
to
meet
the
demands
of
deadlines
and
also
how
to
adapt
to
the
changes
that
regularly
occur
 in
 the
 design
 industry.
 I
 am
 constantly
 learning
 new
 processes
 and
 updating
 my
 skill
 set
 in
 order
 to
be
 aware
 of
 these
 changes.
 I
 possess
 the
 skills
 necessary
 to
 be
 efficient
 and
 effective
 as
 a
 designer.
 Since
 2005,
 I
 have
 worked
 as
 a
 Media
 Production
Coordinator
and
freelance
designer
and
consultant
with
Jackson
State
University
and
Insight
Designs
in
Jackson,
 Mississippi.
 In
 these
 positions,
 I
 have
 worked
 with
 a
 variety
 of
 clients
 to
 design
 and
 create
 advertisements
 for
 various
 companies,
 promotional
 material
 for
 organizations
 such
 as
 The
 Fred
 Lewis
 Foundation,
 and
 client
 specific
 materials
 for
 different
 facets
 of
 the
 Jackson
 State
 University
 organization
 such
 as:
 The
 Career
 Services
 Department,
 Student
 Life,
 Community
Service/Service
Learning
and
WJSU
88.5
FM
radio
station.
Through
this
interaction,
I
have
realized
the
value
of
 communication
in
translating
a
client's
ideas
into
a
visual
product.

 
 As
an
events
coordinator
for
the
Black
College
Communications
Association
(BCCA)
Annual
HBCU
Journalism
Conference,
I
 was
part
of
a
diverse
team
that
organized
one
of
the
biggest
journalism
conferences
for
the
Jackson
area,
bringing
in
top
 professionals
from
every
arena
of
the
craft.
For
the
past
eight
years
I
have
managed
a
staff
of
30
student
employees,
set
all
 deadlines
 and
 production
 schedules,
 trained
 employees
 in
 the
 art
 of
 fully
 operating
 a
 camera,
 proper
 composition
 of
 a
 photo,
 layout
 and
 design
 and
 photo
 editing,
 writing
 composition
 and
 copy
 editing,
 and
 mentored
 students
 pursuing
 a
 career
 in
 Journalism.
 
 I
 have
 overseen
 the
 production
 of
 and
 created
 the
 layout
 and
 design
 for
 4
 publications;
 The
 eXperience
Magazine
(A
Bi‐annual
Publication
with
over
3,000
subscribers),
The
Blue
&
White
Flash
 Newspaper
(A
 weekly
 publication
 with
a
circulation
of
over
8,000);
 The
 Jacksonian
Yearbook
(A
yearly
publication
with
over
3,000
 subscribers);
 and
The
Office
of
Student
Life
Newsletter
(A
Bi‐annual
Publication).
I
have
also
designed
flyers,
save
the
date
cards,
logos,
 websites,
 posters,
 programs
 and
 other
 promotional
 materials
 for
 the
 University
 along
 with
 creating
 marketing
 materials
 such
as
Advertising
Pricing
packages,
press
kits,
blogs,
and
Social
Media
Sites
as
a
facet
of
the
Department
of
Marketing
and
 Communications
for
Student
Life.
 
 In
 my
 time
 as
 a
 professional
 I
 have
 learned
 that
 attention
 to
 detail,
 versatility
 and
 a
 “Can
 Do”
 attitude
 are
 essential
 to
 success
 in
 this
 field.
 I
 have
 won
 awards
 for
 my
 work
 from
 the
 Black
 College
 Communications
 Association
 (BCCA),
 the
 Mississippi
Press
Association
and
have
been
honored
by
the
University
with
the
Rising
Star
Award
for
excellence.

I
would
 love
to
translate
that
success
into
something
special
for
YOUR
COMPANY.
My
Bachelor
of
Science
degree
in
graphic
design,
 my
Masters
of
Science
degree
in
Mass
Communications
and
my
work
experiences
have
taught
me
how
to
bring
ideas
to
life
 on
time
and
under
budget.
 I
 would
love
the
 chance
to
apply
the
skills
and
knowledge
I
have
 gained
to
the
position
 your
 company
 has
 available
 and
 would
 appreciate
 the
 chance
 to
 meet
 with
 you
 to
 discuss
 how
 I
 could
 be
 a
 vital
 part
 of
 your
 organization.


 

 

 

 Sincerely,
