To Whom It May Concern
Dear Prospective Employer:
As a future May 2013 journalism graduate from Baylor University, I will be an excellent addition to any outstanding company looking for as a versatile, organized and hard-working young woman who always strives for excellence. The testimonials from my former and current classmates and faculty members speak well of my character and my work ethic.
As a young adult, I am fortunate to say I already lived on three different continents. Therefore, I am conformable with changes, sensitive to new possibilities. Also, I constantly seek to learn from others. As a native from a developing country, I believe education is one of the main keys for the development of today’s poor countries.
Throughout my time at Baylor, I have developed new skills while reinforcing old ones. As an international student who already speaks and writes French, my journalism graduate courses have been platforms where I strengthened my writing and communication skills. Through my enhanced research skills, I now have the ability to synthetize media content and to generate analytical information. I have closely and successfully worked with a Baylor member as her research graduate assistant since my first year in graduate school. I successfully work on my own or with a diverse group of people.
Further, I have a passion and a strong understanding of social media networks such as Blogger, Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn. I have designed and regularly keep up to date two Weblogs “Women & Africa” and “Praise. Praise. Pray.” This makes me a social media/communication savvy. I have a good knowledge on how to grow an online audience using multiple platforms.
My campus involvement experience illustrates my leadership ability and my strong sense for engagement. As the president then the vice-president of the Baylor National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ), I have coordinated and organized monthly meetings. This fall 2013, I was induced into the Baylor chapter of Omicron Delta Kappa (ODK), a selective Leadership Honor Society that encourages, recognizes and honors campus leaders. I was previously an ODK member as an undergraduate student at Westminster College.
Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward hearing from you.
