Erica's Profile

Experience Summary

Hi. My name is Erica and I have over six years of promotional experience. I have worked for eight different companies and have done promotions all over Connecticut. I have experience in bars, liquor stores, supermarkets, malls, and at concerts. I have work experience as a field manager, merchandiser, promotional model, brand ambassador, and auditor. When I am not doing promotions I am either working as a Special Education Tutor or waitressing. I love to stay busy! During my days off I like to work out, go to the beach, spend time with friends and family, and find something new and fun to do. I love promotions because I love interacting with people and love that each promotion is different so each day is different. View my contact details, availability, and stats.

Experience

Other Experience

For the past two years I have worked as a Lead Stylist for the jewelry company Stella & Dot. Though it is direct sales, and very different than promotions, it has strengthened my selling ability overall.
