  1. Your resume is clear and easy to follow. You gave good, detailed information about the jobs you’ve held. I especially like that you’ve worked for World Wrestling Entertainment. I didn’t know it had a kids magazine. It’s good that you stated you’re a daily consumer of social media outlets. It will play well with your interest in how technologies influence relationships.

    • Thank you. I’ve certainly noticed that social media has impacted my relationships. It somehow seems to squirm its way into my daily life. And yes, I was unaware of WWE’s kid’s magazine until I started interning there. It’s actually packed with crafts for the kids and inspirational messages from the talent.
