It seems like I’m always trying to add another thing experience to my resume.
Since my time in high school, my resume has always pushed the boundaries (quite literally the margins of the page). It has also challenged any professional in my school’s career development center to get all of my credentials on but a single sheet of paper, and show the full extent of my experiences.
I have always been an over-achiever and one to fill all of the hours in the day. In high school, along with the normal school day, I was a two season varsity athlete, 1st grade CCD teacher, bakery employee, and on the side, a normal teenager. Unfortunately, when I arrived at Providence College, it was no different. I dedicated my free time to joining Student Congress, and eventually rose to one of the four highest student- held positions on campus. I also ran the intramural program in the evenings while tallying 10 intramural championships on my belt. All of these activities earning me a spot on the college’s leadership honor society with less than a dozen of my classmates.
Ok, so I think you’re finally getting the point. I have been extremely involved over the last decade of my life, and it has not stopped yet! I think I’ve finally accepted the fact that I will never be one of those people to sit back and enjoy a cup of coffee on the porch. If I have a second, I’ll be engaged in downward dog, while reading a book, and drinking coffee through a straw.
Am I getting to my point yet? Yes, I promise we have arrived at the climax of this post. Over the past semester I have been lucky enough to do an online internship with CollegeFashionista. I had the position of Style Guru, and represented the Providence College community with monthly posts about fashion I see on campus. I have been accepted for my second and final semester in this position, along with more responsibilities and a new position.
In the end of November, I applied for a position as one of CF’s Social Media Interns. I would post content on my own social media handles that would then feed into the company’s handle and appeal to the mass community of CF followers. This application, along with the standard questions, also included a social media challenge. I was to create an image that would promote the CF Style Guru position to college students, and then post it on my account. As I was home for Thanksgiving, I teamed up with Beth to photograph me in my favorite location, the local airport. I utilized the notecard I received over the summer from the company with their “Rad” slogan, to help with the company’s branding and then just had some fun with it!
