I have worked for years in promotions in media and now would like to transition into a marketing coordinator role at an architecture firm. I have a layperson's interest in architecture and design, especially urban planning and green initiatives. I want to merge my interests with my qualifications and experience. I would love to support marketing in identifying new project opportunities and prepare proposals for client submissions.
