Some of the value that I can bring to Summit Business Media is summarized below:

•I have outstanding editing and proofreading skills that allow me to edit on the spot, which includes editing breaking news successfully as it’s coming in.
•My abilities include researching news and determining which featured articles to use.
•I’m a team player with lots of patients and good people skills.
•I’m computer literate, organized and very creative, which are all great qualities to have in this field.

I obtained a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Kean University and I firmly believe that I’m the right person for the job. I’m qualified, enthusiastic, hard working, able to meet deadlines and looking forward to a meeting in which we can discuss how my qualifications can be an asset to Summit Business Media.
