Introduction

Hi there! I am a recent graduate who is keen to get involved in the communications industry. Despite what my 'Personality Quiz' might say, I am outgoing and confident and a great communicator. I have just completed a Bachelor of International Studies at the University of Queensland. I am looking for full-time work that will help me break into the communications industry. I have experience working in hospitality, office support and experiential marketing. I have also completed internships at the Mexican Embassy, Canberra, the Queensland Aboriginal and Islander Health Council, Brisbane, and am currently interning once a week with the news team at 4zzz radio station. I speak French and am learning Spanish at an intermediate level. I'm a creative thinker, a hard worker and a fast learner. I hope to hear from you soon! laire
