Thanks so much for seeing me; I’m very interested in this position. I think my current role as SORC Student Balloon Coordinator lends really well to the responsibilities for this job, and I love working with people.
What’s the SORC? We’re the Student Organization Resources Center at U of M, so we help clubs around the campus with all of their balloon needs. If any club is having an event, and they really need balloons in a jiffy at a cheap price, they’ll run up to the fourth floor of the Union and put in an order. We do arrangements, too. I can make your balloons look like a flower or create an arch over a stage. We have a saying in the office: If you need balloons, come to the SORC.
I’m glad you asked about my day-to-day work. I blow the balloons up and create displays for student leaders. Ruby Red, Emerald Green, Sapphire Blue, you name it. We got ’em all. We have several helium machines, so I don’t have to use my mouth. Of course, I still have to hand-tie each one.
My hardest experience as Head Ballooner? It can be a high pressure job sometimes. I like to think I stay calm in those situations. A great example would be earlier this semester, when one of my subordinates forgot to give me the order for the Michigan Paintball Club’s mass meeting. Man, that was a rough afternoon. We did 40 balloons in an hour. But then we realized they specifically wanted Block M Blue Mylar and Citrine Yellow. So there goes eight Jewel Magenta and Sparkling Burgundy balloons right there. I’m proud to say we’ve had a perfect balloon record since.
Why do I want to work here? I’ve really valued my time as Balloon Coordinator for the SORC, but I think it’s time to move on. I think your company would allow me to put the skills I’ve gained blowing up countless balloons to work in a collaborative office space.
No I don’t think I have any more questions. I guess that’s about it. I look forward to hearing from you. Feel free to add me on LinkedIn, and let me know if you are planning an event that could be improved by a bit of balloon decor.
