A rewarding experience - From France (San Francisco)
My name is Basile. I live in Paris for now and I decided to make a new turn in my career by coming to the US especially in San Francisco.
A recent graduate with a Masters in Business, Management and Communications, specialising in Public Relations and Organizational Communications, I have practical, on-the-job experience in public relations through an internship as well as volunteer positions.
During my studies, I developed strong writing and editorial, thanks to my B.A. and M.A. in literature and language. I also had the opportunity to hew these skills through my experience :
- as a volunteer fundraiser and partnership liaison for La Nuit des Amazones Charity. I learned the subtleties of persuading people to contribute time and money for a cause, the fight against Breast Cancer. Entirely responsible of the event communication (press releases, press book...), it reinforced my self-confidence and how to adapt the content to different targets.
- during my six-month full-time internship with the Equidia TV Channels. I received excellent training ingeneral public relations and event management. I gained experience in dealing with the media as I was the point of contact for media outlets interested in media releases or program information. I successfully fielded enquiries and also developed great follow-up skills, which will be very important in my future experiences.
- as a website content and customer service manager for Protected content . It enables me to maintain customer satisfaction by providing problem-solving resources. Working for a website specialized in high value items (Chanel, Hermes, Vuitton...) gave me the opportunity to know more about the designer’s work and products and how to manage their promotion with the customers. It also enforced my skills in community management.
I am excited about the opportunity to bring my skills and energy to a company. This opportunity will also allow me to further develop my skills.
