Web Development Writer
Last active: 03/11/2011
The premier reason you should hire me is that no matter what I'm doing, I succeed and excel because I possess an exemplary work ethic. I live by the mantra my grandfather taught me growing up: "Good, better, best. Never let it rest 'til your good is your better and your better is your best." It's a silly rhyme, but it speaks to the way I get things done.
Furthermore, my education, experience and personality make me an ideal candidate for employment in copywriting position. As is outlined in my resume, I have extensive education related to the fields of contemporary culture and society, and effective communication. Both my Bachelor’s degree in Literature and Writing and Master’s degree in Popular Culture, and my achievements and awards, attest to my intelligence and ability in those realms, as well as in research.
Various work experiences have prepared me with the skills necessary for advertisement and marketing writing. In my role as freelance content writer for web development agencies, I research, write and edit blog-style articles, press releases and email newsletters about a variety of topics, focusing on search engine optimization and readability. Additionally, I held the position of both art editor and editor-in-chief of the Asheville, NC-based literary arts magazine, metabolism. The role of editor required the ability to collaborate with a small team, work long, tedious hours and manage a variety of critical contacts beyond the magazine’s staff. These, as well as other work experiences such as college-level teaching and the publication of a 100-page thesis, have rendered me adept at imaginative problem solving and multi-tasking in fast-paced environments while maintaining a pleasant and professional manner.
In the future I envision myself working alongside a team of creative, forward-thinking individuals in the field of media making. My verbal and written communication skills and deep understanding of media and popular culture will help me succeed in my career. Importantly, I posses compassion, creativity and drive. Equally as important, I am pleasant and fun to work with.
