KAtie Thompson

Hello, I’m Katie. I’m 21 years old and currently in my final few weeks at Massey University in Wellington. I studied a Bachelor of Communications, majoring in Public Relations and minoring in Media Studies.  

I am currently looking for work in the media and communications industry for 2019. I am hoping to gain more experience and of course work in an industry I have always been passionate about. During high school at Mount Aspiring College, i interned as a part-time journalist for my local newspaper, Wanaka Sun. Over this time, I was able to get 11 articles published, including one feature article I had worked on solo for 3 months. The internship gave me a huge insight into the media industry and secured my future dream of working in media.  

When realising I wanted a career in media, I decided to move to Wellington to sit a Bachelor’s degree at Massey. Going to university and studying a degree specifically in media, has enabled me to further my skills to an academic level. 3 years later, I have the gained more drive to head into the industry in 2019 as well as carrying fresh graduate skills and knowledge. 

Skills:

-          Bachelor of Communications Graduate, majoring in PR and minoring in Media Studies

-          Previous Journalism experience and knowledge

-          Writing and editing skills

-          Computer and design skills; Photoshop, InDesign, Microsoft applications

-          Design and photography skills

-          Excellent communication skills

-          Friendly and confident telephone

-          6-years’ customer service experience and customer relation skills

-          I enjoy being part of a team but I am able and confident to work efficiently alone.

-          Well presented

-          Reliable and hard-working

-          Full NZ driver with clean licence

 

I would be extremely grateful if you were able to consider me for a potential future role within your company to further my skills and experience in the industry.

Thank you
Katie
