Re: Application for employment

I Njabulo Gumede am pleased to introduce myself and provide herewith a copy of my curriculum vitae. I completed a 3-year diploma in Entertainment technology at the Tshwane University of Technology, Entertainment technology is inclusive of subjects such as lighting (for TV or Creative) Sound, Stage Technology, Theatre History, Arts administration, Safety and First Aid.

I am a young motivated individual who considers obstacles as challenges in disguise; my passion for making a difference is a driving force in every responsibility I am entrusted with. Having worked on the technical side of Entertainment and having being employed as a Project Co-ordinator, I have grown accustomed to the reality that if one intends to live a comfortable life then they must labor all their efforts into making their wish a reality; therefore, I am ready to face all the demands that come with my work. My greatest strength I would say, is my ability to follow instructions without prejudice, I find pleasure in working with a team and am still comfortable in carrying out a duty individually. I also believe that if you employ me, you then would have invested in me and I would then in turn be an investment to you. As mentioned above I was employed as a Project Co-ordinator please note that this does not limit me to fill any vacancy that you may find suitable given my references. I should also mention that I completed my 3-year diploma however I was not allowed to graduate due to an outstanding amount on my tertiary fees; The Tshwane University of Technology will be more than pleased to answer any questions or queries that you may have regarding my credentials.
