I lived in South Africa for a year. The first 6 months I was working at a modeling agency as booking assistant then I've worked at ENGIE as a web-marketing assistant.
Dear Sir or Madam,
I have just graduated from the ESCEM business school in France, majoring web-marketing. It is my pleasure to apply for a consulting position. I believe that your company has the ideal culture in which to pursue my goal of becoming a digital consultant.
My professional experiences at ENGIE and HAVAS GROUP prepare me to be successful at your company. Indeed, I worked during 6 months at Havas group, one of the biggest advertising agencies in the world. I was advertising manager and digital manager for the African continent. I was in charge of the communication of large groups such as Total or Turkish Airlines in Africa. I worked directly with clients in every aspects of building their campaigns from start to finish. That work allowed me to work in an international environment and understand the different fields involved in communications strategy.
More recently I moved to South Africa a year, during this journey I worked at ENGIE in Cape Town as web-marketing assistant. I was in charge of the IT project management and the digital strategy. Indeed, I worked on the building of the new website of the company and I had put in place a digital strategy in order to develop our visibility. After a year in South Africa I learnt a lot about the South African culture and I improved my English. I have the flexibility in both language : French and English, and culture to operate successfully in many different contexts.
Due to my passion for fashion and art I created in January a website call Ayostreet.com; this website highlights fashion trends, designers, travel, lifestyle and pop culture: everything straight out of Africa. Today Ayostreet has around 30 visitors per day and 1000 followers on Facebook. We work in collaboration with bloggers from all over Africa. This project gave me the capacity to think creatively and entrepreneurially.
To conclude, as a challenging person I would love to become a digital consultant and learn more from talented colleagues. I believe that your company will allow me to demonstrate my teamwork spirit and exhibit my curiosity.
I would love to talk with you to show you my motivation. Thank you for your time. I look forward to hearing you.
