I am looking for an opportunity to use my skills in integrated marketing to make a difference, help transform the world, and create a better future.
I am a graduate of Emerson College with a degree in Marketing Communications. Emerson College gave me real-world experience working on marketing, branding, advertising, and public relations campaigns, as well as integrated marketing campaigns. As a member of Emerson’s AAF team, I helped develop an integrated marketing campaign targeting multicultural young adults for Nissan and competed in the American Advertising Federation’s annual competition.
After graduating from Emerson, I visited friends who live in China, South Korea, and Taiwan for six weeks. When I returned home from my adventure, I was ready to delve deeper into Korean culture by, for example, living there for a year! My dream to live and work abroad became a reality when I was offered a position to teach English in South Korea. I pursued that dream and have now finished my exciting, emboldening year there. Before I went to Korea, I gained ample experience in various aspects of integrated marketing from internships in college, as well as my first position out of college:
- Assistant account executive at Marketing Partners, Burlington, VT
- Full-time marketing internship at Keppler Speakers, Washington, D.C.
- Summer social media internship at Likeable Media, Boston, MA
