During my undergrad studies, I spent a summer studying abroad and a spring break in El Salvador building homes through a program called Un Techo Para Mi Pais. That same year, I also raised money (in lieu of gifts for my 22nd birthday) to support Charity: Water, a non-profit that provides clean drinking water to countries that suffer from lack of the same. All of these opportunities have given me a great appreciation for the world and its occupants. In addition, I am also proficient in various computer software programs such as Adobe Creative Suite and Microsoft Office. I would love the opportunity to use my skills and experience to market a progressive organization. My previous work experience includes a part-time job that allowed me to use my social media and marketing skills to promote a real estate firm. I also have interned with a marketing firm and gained valuable marketing skills. I am willing to relocate anywhere in the United States. If you have entry-level marketing positions available, please contact me at email@example.com. Thank you! Samya Thangaraj (Send your One Paragraph Pitch submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
