Dear ThinkGeek Overlords,
I’m submitting my resume for the PR internship you’ve advertised on your website.
For the last 18 months I’ve worked for Microsoft and held the position of Product Advisor and as of recently, Service Advisor. This experience familiarized me with the tech world and its culture. I am also studying Communication with an emphasis on Public Relations at Marymount University.
As a product advisor, I set my focus on community development. I worked closely with the community development specialist. My responsibilities included teaching workshops on various Microsoft products, and planning and hosting events in store and off-site. This varied from fundraisers and meetings, to product launches. Starting January 2014, I was promoted to be a service advisor. So my job has since been centered on problem-solving. I’ve gained more knowledge on both software and hardware and have expanded my skillset. I’m looking to continue expanding it.
As I mentioned earlier, I am currently pursuing my degree in Public Relations. I have taken public relations, communications, and marketing courses that have taught me to write press releases, create media kits and introduced me to integrated marketing campaigns. Working with ThinkGeek is an opportunity for me to simultaneously use my technical and public relations knowledge.
Lastly, as per your request, I will be happy to bring pie for Pi day.
