My name is Sarah Sommer & I am currently pursuing a position as a packaging & production specialist in the apparel and textile industry. I am a recent graduate of Michigan State University with a BS in Packaging Engineering. Through my packaging education and my internship, I have developed the skills necessary to make me an asset in any fast paced work environment. While working for Tyson Foods I was essentially given the responsibilities of an entry level engineer. Some of my most notable successes during my internship were: - Helped design, source, and implement manufacturable packaging innovations across multiple brands and sales channels - Traveled extensively to co-packing facilities to oversee start ups of new product manufacturing lines - Working cohesively with marketing, procurement, and sales to keep to project timelines and target costs - Developing expertise in writing and updating detailed product and package specifications including Bill of Materials and Die Lines I have worked hard to establish myself personally and professionally as a creative, driven, and organized individual with a goal oriented mindset. I am a team player who takes pride in my excellent written and verbal communication skills. Quickly gathering information to understand the product and process behind it before suggesting or implementing changes is an integral part of my work style. I am a recent graduate looking to build on my already valuable experience. Please message me with any opportunities you think I may be interested in.
