My name is Cameron Alexander, and I am a student at Western Carolina University double majoring in political science and communication with a concentration in public relations. My peers often describe me as hardworking, mindful, and dedicated.
Last summer I interned at Marken as a Cell and Gene Therapy Marketing Analyst. This opportunity really allowed me utilize my skills as a researcher and develop my passion for marketing. I learned a lot about becoming more detail oriented and pushing the boundaries of what I can do. In this role I was tasked with researching potential clients as well creating presentations and graphics for the cell and gene team.
The summer before my third year at Western Carolina, I had the wonderful opportunity of interning in Washington D.C. with the Congressional Office of Richard Hudson. This allowed me to communicate with constituents, give capitol tours, attend legislative hearings, and gather voting records. This fast-paced environment pushed me to work under pressure, maintain a strong work ethic, and meet deadlines. I hope to translate this experience into a career in politics one day.
During my time at Western Carolina, I worked as a Peer Career Mentor in the Center for Career and Professional Development. I have worked there since my freshman year and will continue to do so as a senior. My main duties include mentoring students on resumes and cover letters as well as help plan events and manage social media.
I am a member of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia which allows me to continue my passion for music. I have served on the executive board for three years in the positions of Warden, Secretary, and President. I have also served as chair of the public relations committee, where I advertised and marketed events for the chapter and managed social media. Most recently, I have been elected as the Collegiate Province Representative for the state of North Carolina by province. My duties include mentoring collegiate chapters as well as serving as a voting delegate during our national convention.
