SKILLS AND ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Interpersonal Skills
 Contacting stakeholders and working with a team of 4 other interns as a Communications &
Marketing Intern has given me enjoyable experience in a professional career-related
environment.
 My diverse employment history has improved my people skills through customer interaction.
 Becoming student representative for my course during first year encouraged me to develop a
relationship with my course mates and school staff in order to fulfil my role to a high standard.

Team Skills
 I have often worked a team throughout my diverse employment history to ensure I worked
efficiently, and learnt to communicate in a mature, professional manner.
 During my year in upper sixth as a prefect, I worked with 11 other prefects to ensure we
worked effectively as a group. I was elected for this role by peers and staff.
 I am currently the treasurer of CommSoc, my school of media and communications’ society
and I work closely in a team of 5 to create and run events and coordinate school events.

Ambitious, “can-do” attitude


 I organised a sports day event in aid of a charity I love, WaterAid, as well as producing
promotional materials and publicising it. This shows my nature as a self-starter.
 I was momentarily unhappy with how my society was being run so I went above my treasurer
position to endeavour to create more regular and more interesting events.
Creative Skills
 I created newsletter for Leeds Halls theatre during my work experience, learning to tailor it to
their wide audience and communicate business objectives.
 Creating my own design project for a client using relevant software to express my own
creative vision during work experience at The Big Idea web design and marketing company.

Time Management
 I have always managed my time effectively, evident in my balance of active participation in
university life, studies, part time work and social life whilst achieving good grades.
 I have now taken on a part time Communications & Marketing internship alongside studies,
and with my ability to prioritise, I never miss a deadline.

Passion for Media


 I constantly immerse myself in all dimensions of media and broadcasting. This is from a variety
of television including intelligent drama and humbling documentaries, to cinema, exemplified
in my reading of critical works and discussion with friends.

Other Skills
 I can confidently use Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Office and Excel. GCSE I.C.T. confirms this
to a good standard. I also have basic Photoshop skills.
 Completing English A-level gave me excellent communication and written skills.
