I would be responsible for being the lesion between Graphic Design and the client. Make sure the client was able to get all the art work for the promotion that Lancome was doing.

I checked the budget for summer 2013 and prepared the – more... new budget for fall 2013. I needed to make sure that we had budget for the Sales Promotion to go through. This required me to work with the Finance Department. Finally on my spare time I would take MyLearning courses in Microbiology to further my knowledge about what a microbiologist would do in there Research and Innovation Department and why were they important. I also learned many different laboratory techniques on how to prepare samples and how to use various laboratory instruments. The most enjoyable part of my job was to be around employees who had a real passion to help the company and took pride in there work. This drove me to do better and work to my fullest potential. The hardest part of the job was the travel because I live in south jersey it was a long commute everyday to work but I really loved the work experience in Manhattan. – less
