    Content Writer/Creator with Administrative Assistant experience.

    United States - Tests: 8 - Portfolio: 1

    I am experienced in creating documents for professional settings, especially in small business businesses. As a former executive administrative assistant to a small business, I created all written documents as needed by the owner. Since the economy bottomed out and my former employer downsized, my job shifted to volunteer in the same capacity for the American Legion while still working for the same person. I recently interned for a local pedagogical journal where the work centered on researching and creating a report on digital author and copyrights. Additionally, I edited the static content and researched WordPress themes for the platform switch. As an English major with a History minor, research is a definite strength. Social media platforms and online communication remain a top priority in the digital age. Brand marketing and self-promotion are key on social media and building contacts is mandatory as a journalist. Reporting requires online research while maintaining use of content management system.
