Hi and welcome to my ePortfolio. My name is Julia Kohn and I am currently a freshman at Ithaca college. I am originally from a small suburb in Sharon, Massachusetts. I am on track to graduating with a degree in Integrated marketing and communications. I am expected to graduate in May of 2016.
I am extremely passionate about advertising, and I am really interested in making a difference in the advertising world. I want to change the way people are portrayed negatively in the media, and I want to leave my mark on this business. I hope one day to modify the way women, race and relationships are portrayed adversely in the media. I know I can bring my creative and alternative ideas to the table to change this. I know I can be the go-to person to substitute old ideas for fresh and new ones. I have a strong intuition, I have the ability to think creatively, and I am able to manage my time effectively. With a strong intuition, I have the ability to distinguish what clients or customers really want and because I have a creative mind, I am always coming up with new ideas and new strategies to conquer projects. I know how to plans things accordingly, and I am always determined to finish with 100 percent effort. I work extremely hard and give my best every time.
Any person in this industry needs to be able to know how to sell a product and to do it well. With my experience in sales, I learned the tricks of the trade. You have to deal with all kinds of people and each personality taught me different strategies on how to push a product. To really put your foot in the door of this industry, you have to be quick on your feet and know how draw a person in. Its the "BOOM" factor that will draw them in at first glance, and I am positive I have those "BOOM" factor ideas. I've worked in sales for about 2 years and I understand what it means to relate to customers and to sell a product on the floor. I've run fundraisers and charities and it all has taught me how to be organized and promote traffic to events. I am positive I have what it takes to work in this industry.
Please take a look around and enjoy!
