Rachel is a brilliant marketing strategist with impeccable work ethic. Her knowledge about the intricacies of the marketing process and her ability to explain complex ideas allowed our company to realise the benefits of marketing.

Not only do we have a remarkable website, but her counsel continues to be instrumental in changing our marketing paradigm into that that is better suited our competitive marketplace.

Rachel is amazing! I’ve worked with her since January 2016 but it seems longer—she’s made a big impact on my business as an agency consultant.

“I had the pleasure of hiring and working with Rachel at a small Oregon winery. She took the time to learn about the business and submitted a thoughtful and well-written marketing plan before her first day on the job. During the months of her employment, I witnessed her expand her knowledge of the Oregon wine industry and contribute to the growth of the business by using her marketing and public relations expertise. Within a matter of weeks, she was entrusted with managing the tasting room alone and provided stellar customer service to new and regular customers alike. She made impactful changes to the company website and was instrumental in designing and creating rack cards and other literature to promote the business. Her professionalism is second to none and her positive attitude is infectious. She is a fast learner and a team player that works intuitively without guidance and responds well to feedback.

The following is a recommendation from Professor Lisa Weidman, my academic adviser at Linfield College and the professor from whom I took public relations and advertising classes.

June 27, 2013

“Rachel is very smart, mature beyond her years and highly motivated. Her speaking and writing skills are excellent, and her work ethic and organizational skills are exceptional. She is a true self-starter. When she was in college, she was the most productive student I have ever seen. She completed and submitted almost all of her assignments BEFORE the deadline, despite enrolling in 17 or 18 credits per semester and working two to three part-time jobs. She didn’t miss class, and she was never late. In class, she was attentive and asked pertinent questions. She was always considerate of faculty and fellow students. And her work was top notch.

Rachel and I have kept in touch since she graduated, so I can tell you that she remains upbeat and pleasant to be around–and a quick study. I give her my most enthusiastic recommendation.”

The following is a recommendation from Professor Michael Huntsberger, for whom I have worked from freshman to senior year at Linfield College.

December 17, 2012

“Rachel worked directly for me for three and a half years as my office assistant, and served as the peer advisor for my Colloquium course in the fall of 2012. I have also instructed Rachel as a student in several courses. In all of these activities, Rachel has distinguished herself as an energetic, meticulous, and hard working individual who is ready to meet any challenge presented to her.

As my employee, Rachel was responsible for a variety of essential tasks, including conducting basic research, grading and monitoring of student assignments, advising incoming first years students, organizing records and files, filing academic records and professional documents, inventorying supplies and materials, updating computer software, and running errands to other campus units. In every instance, she approached her work with skill, energy and confidence. In fact, Rachel may be the most capable self-starter I have ever employed. She is always ready and eager to take on any task assigned to her, and she approaches her work with a degree of focus that was almost uncanny. Her work is meticulous and thorough, and she never fails to complete her assignments faster than I expect her to. She achieves these outstanding results with little or no supervision. In every respect, Rachel is an outstanding employee, because she is a fundamentally terrific person.”

The following recommendation is from Library Director Susan Barnes Whyte of Linfield’s Jereld R. Nicholson Library. I worked for the library both as a circulation desk worker and an office worker. I was also her public relations intern over the summer.

November 26, 2012

“To Whom It May Concern:

It is with pleasure that I write this reference letter for Rachel Go.

I have known Rachel since the academic year 2010-2011 when she took the introduction to the Mass Communication major, Information Gathering, which I co-teach with Professor Brad Thompson. I did not know Rachel at all when the class started but she quickly rose to the top of the class, always ahead of the work and always eager to do even more. Information Gathering is one of the more difficult classes that Mass Communication majors take. Students devote the semester to studying, researching, and writing about a national policy issues. There are 10 weekly assignments which culminate in a 12-page paper and a 22-source annotated bibliography which must include 3 books, 3 scholarly journal articles, 3 newspaper and/or popular press articles, 3 actual interviews with experts, and blogs, government documents and other kinds of sources. Rachel excelled in each assignment and was way ahead of most of the other students.

I then was pleased to hire Rachel to work for us in the library once she returned from studying abroad in China. She immediately wanted to do more than the normal work-study job, so she proposed a public relations internship for the library. She managed several projects including writing brochures for all new students, managing the READ poster project which features faculty, staff and students in posters placed all over campus, and creating training videos for new students. Rachel has so much energy and determination to do a good job. And, she is such a pleasant person with whom to work. Few students in my 23 years at Linfield have shown the initiative that Rachel has.

I would recommend Rachel for most any position. She can think, create, write, and do media-intensive projects. She is also always pleasant and careful in her work. She will give any future employer more than 100%.

Please do contact me if I can answer any questions you might have.

Rachel rocks.

Sincerely,

Susan Barnes Whyte
