Please consider my attached resume and work samples for consideration for your Visual Arts Specialist position. Based on the posted job description, I believe that I would be an excellent fit for this position. My last two positions were in non-profit and higher education respectively. As UNC Charlotte’s Media Services Coordinator I worked closely with faculty and staff to design instructional and institutional graphics projects to showcase the university’s growing presence in the region. Additionally, I taught graphic design courses and web design courses at UNC Charlotte and Central Piedmont Community College. I understand the challenges of working within the parameters of state budgets. To be able to offer more services I have educated myself on social media and how they have to be an integral part of any marketing communication toolkit. In my current role I am augmenting traditional print advertising by using social media for everything from new product launches to tradeshow lead development. To keep current I actively engage in industry user groups on LinkedIn and I attend as many workshop and seminars as possible. If you are seeking a talented individual who stays abreast of design and web technologies, has a formal background in graphic design, earns 100% staff support, and is as career-committed as it takes to achieve total success, then please consider what I have to offer. I would be happy to have a preliminary discussion with you or members of your team to see if we can establish a mutual interest.
Thank you for your attention to these materials. I certainly look forward to exploring this opportunity further.
