Writing/ Editing/ Proofreading
Web Development (HTML & CSS)
Though I am young, I have a skill set and experience that fulfills your needs. My versatility is a quality you can use in project management, internal & external communications, or staff training and development.
In my ten years of experience I’ve organized and performed training presentations for 200 corps members, helped open the largest café in center city Philadelphia and have done everything from write training materials to organize special events for the premier dessert location in Philadelphia.
I’ve achieved all this through mastery of communication. My writing has trained corps members, informed neighborhood residents and businesses and persuaded customers to crave ice cream in mid-Winter. I’ve spoken publically at training sessions, special events and seminars. Also, I am no stranger to social media. I’m a contributing blogger for neighborlii.com/news, where I’ve been trained in SEO practices.
So what do you need: a leader, innovator, organizer or initiator? I am the versatile worker who can fill any of these roles. And since I am young and enthusiastic, I guarantee that I will work twice as hard as and for much less than any of your more experienced applicants. So why not interview me and see how I can help you?
I hope to hear from you soon.
