I am proud to announce I will be graduating in the beginning of May from the School of Media Art and Design concentrating in Corporate Communications with a minor in Human Resource Development. James Madison University has been so good to me the past three years. Transferring is never an easy adjustment and the friends I have made have helped me feel so comfortable in making my campus home. I have grown to love corporate management and have found a passion in advertising, as I have been an active member on my schools advertising team, Madison American Advertising Federation and Public Relations Student Society of America. My overall experience at James Madison has been preparing for a life in communication consulting by creating projects that help better market companies and maintain its reputation.
It is my passion for corporate communications that then lead me to CollegeFashionista, where I have been so proud to call my internship for my senior year. I am so sad to be leaving College Fashionista after it has guided me in creating a presence in online blogging. I remember looking online for internships and reading the description for the internship. It was the one opportunity that fit best for me and help mold who I wanted to be. I will never forget receiving this internship and how happy I have become for accepting the offer. The internship has helped me grow in the means of fashion as well. I would like to thank all the Fashionistas I have interviewed weekly that have helped me better find myself in the world of fashion. Getting to know people through the connection of fashion has been really enjoyable. It has helped me with my communication skills and finding a common ground with people I may have not had the opportunity to meet.
This coming summer I will be working again for ERP International, LLC., where I will be putting my strategic communication skills to the test. I am excited to once again be working with them as I have grown to understand and appreciate the cultural atmosphere they have to offer to their community. Who is to say what my future holds, however, I hope my job opportunities’ lead me in the direction of public affairs and/or the advertising industry.
