I am very interested in this opportunity! I have a Bachelors in Marketing and am currently pursuing my MBA. In addition to education I have experience working for advertising agencies in the Washing D.C. metro area. Currently, I am a Contract Specialist where I have honed my market research and business advising skills. I was wondering if the position is still open and if so who may I send my resume to for consideration?
