My name is Seth Schoolcraft and I recently graduated from Texas State University with a degree in Public Relations.
I am coming off a position as a volunteer manager for Circuit of the Americas and the first Formula One race here in Austin. This terrific experience allowed me to develop leadership, communication and managerial skills in the fast paced racing industry. As a volunteer manager, I supervised 10-to-20 volunteers for the three-day inaugural F1 event, the three-day MotoGP race and most recently, the three-day Australian V8 Supercars race. Additionally, I was able to interact with scores of guests and greeted them as they enjoyed the racing events. With my volunteers, we managed the race events' social media, developed content with photographs and video and etched an amazing memory for 167,000 spectators at the circuit and millions throughout the world. We developed and implemented strategies to drive consumers to the track and ensured an experience of a lifetime. With the understanding I have gained from participating in many multiple day events, I am able to diligently perform and assist with planning and accomplishing projects on time.
At Texas State University, I was initiated into the Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia Fraternity for Men. As a member, I organized the Mystic Music Festival as the Band and Production Manager. With this position, I was able to personally coordinate with 10 local San Marcos businesses as festival vendors and 10 local performers. This opportunity taught me the importance of organization, networking and multi-tasking. Most recently, I was member of a five-member team that participated and won honorable mention in the national Bateman Case Study Competition through the Public Relations Society of America. This nation-wide competition allowed me to learn and understand the principles of working in a team-oriented atmosphere and self-motivation with individual writing intensive assignments.
With my attention to detail, I am qualified to coordinate with the staff, organize the logistics and network with any client. I will be able to work professionally with others as well as independently. With an assertive nature, I am able to initiate projects and foresee what is required for upcoming assignments.
