Indicate previous experience and/or areas of career proficiency/achievenments

My real life experience in Communication and Advertising is from my previous work experience with renowned media agencies of Pakistan. In those positions I had an opportunity to develop my teamwork abilities by working on group projects with other staff members. I arranged and managed national and international events at my university and at the advertisement agencies as Manager. In those agencies clients’ accounts had to be maintained individually and it encompassed all from media management, event management, promotions to the final product, which are the prerequisites for this position.
I have Firm background and training in areas such as Marketing, Promotion, PR, Mass Media, Administration in the office and out in field for organizing events, interpersonal communication and most important of all a certain amount of aesthetic sense that is required for this type of job topped with bridled confidence.

The above whole process would be integrated with perfect selection of media vehicle.
