Resume

Cover Letter

I am an experienced Event Coordinator and Marketing Director with a background in public relations and audio recording, as well as advanced knowledge in cinematography, video editing, web design and graphic design.

 

My strategy with events is to never settle for adequacy and to accept constructive criticism as much as I welcome compliments. With any event, there is always room for improvement, and I find that the attendees have the most unbiased suggestions on how a situation can be improved. I have experience producing events ranging from casual mixers, entertainment panels, large scale concerts and campus wide conferences.  

 

When it comes to marketing, the challenge is always finding new and creative ways to tell a story. It’s important to know who your audience is and what they are interested in. No event can be successful without the proper marketing tools to make your customers interested to begin with.

 

In any workplace, I strive to go beyond the job description to be the most valuable and effective employee while paying this knowledge forward by tutoring anyone who may deem the information valuable. Having spent most of my career at a college university, I have nearly 15 years of experience teaching students of various levels. 

 

I would like the opportunity to meet with you to discuss employment opportunities you have available. Please let me know if you have any questions. If you would like to see a portfolio of my work, please visit my website at stephenkjanes.com.

 

Thank you for your consideration.
