I am interested in the Visitor Services Associate position, as advertised on The Valentine website. I am currently employed as a sales associate at Old Navy, but I have recently graduated from college with a Liberal Studies degree and a minor in History. The knowledge I have gained from my time in college, and with all of the history courses I have taken, make me an ideal candidate for the Visitor Services Associate position.
