Hello, my name is Eric Albert Branstrom and I am very interested in your administrative assistant position.
I carry a Bachelor of Science Degree in Communication and Marketing which gives me extensive aptitudes in interpersonal, business and digital communication as well as marketing outreach in the forms of social media, community engagement and creative conceptualization. I interned with PBS Detroit Public Television where I acted as production intern, taking on such roles as assistant director, studio page, web editor, teleprompter, additional copywriting and scouting assistant on several nationally televised broadcasts.
I also have an extensive clerical background, with experience in data entry, database administration. telephone reception, executive assistance, most recent assignment requiring work primarily in Salesforce on a daily basis. Such data implementation often takes enormous concentration and precision and have always excelled at deadlines and consistency. In the realm of market research, I have enjoyed working with Hootsuite, HubSpot, Blogger and Focus to engage new business and advertising. I am also a published author and illustrator so my penchant for the written word is one of my strongest aptitudes.
As an independent filmmaker, I recently released my first feature film which has since been sent to several film festivals around the world. I wrote, directed, edited and co-starred in the film, scouting and locking down all locations, handling casting (backstage, agency and social media outreach), and obtaining proper permits & insurance, all while supervising a crew of 18 people. I have also produced material for several short projects here in Chicago with concentration on casting, location scouting and on-set and post production.
I've also founded my own film collective here in Chicago, we're currently at 19 members, and we seek to complete artistic short films every 8-10 weeks with each member taking on different roles such as writer, director, cinematographer, editor, etc - on each project. This experience has been not only very rewarding, but offered me a foot in the door of Chicago's video production community and has developed many professional relationships and friendships that I am proud to foster.
I'm not just looking for a job. I'm looking for an organization where I can plant my roots and grow. I love to laugh and have a good time, but I also know when it’s time to get the job done and I pride myself as a reliable and loyal hard-worker. I have sent along my resume and link to website, such as it is, and is with sincere hope and regards that you find them well and in good spirits.

With kind regards and thanks,
