RE:  LSE Event Steward Application

My previous experience working for the LSE Career Service, the LSE Web Service and my experience in customer servicing roles make me a well-qualified candidate for the Event Steward post. I am motivated to work in this role because of my passion working in customer services, working with various types of audience and performing event management tasks.

During my first year of undergraduate at LSE last year, I worked part time for the LSE Career Service as a Student Helper, where I was the only first year student to be admitted for the post. My role was to assist in most of the Career Fairs and Career Events throughout the year as well as working on many ad-hoc tasks and projects. Moreover, I am proficient with the content of the LSE Public Lectures because I also worked for the LSE Web Services for 3 months, assisting with editing all public lecture podcasts and videos. In terms of customer services, for the summer of my first year I have interned at HSBC Retail Banking branch where I enjoyed serving customers and answering their queries on a daily basis. These interests of mine, in handling customer services tasks and event management, motivated me to apply for this job because I believe I will be really passionate about it and will therefore perform well in this role.

I have extensive experiences in a wide range of fields, from which I have learnt many specific skills that I am able to offer in this role as an Event Steward:
•    Communication skills: I have received customer service experience in volunteering for the Olympics as an ambassador, as well as during my internship with HSBC, which enables me to answer queries of students, visitors and communicate with staff thoroughly.
•    Specific Knowledge about LSE: Several departments within LSE, from the Career Services, Web Services, Student Recruitment Office to Student Counseling Service, have previously employed me. I am therefore very knowledgeable about the services and facilities around LSE, which will be an advantage when I need to assist non-LSE visitors during the events.
•    Planning and organizing resources: I am very proficient with administrative tasks, since I have performed many of those tasks while working as the Summer School Course Assistant for the LSE WP Summer School.
•    Flexibility: I have previously worked for LSE Careers during the academic terms, as well as during weekend and holidays, which illustrates my ability to manage my own time to meet your flexible needs. I am around London for all holidays, which means I can offer my assistance on certain special events.

I am really eager to have an opportunity to discuss my candidacy in further details. Thank you for your time and I look forward to an opportunity to speak to you,

Yours faithfully,
