Pros: working for a good cause, friendships formed with coworkers, extremely flexible work environment
Cons: compensation, health care, professional development
This fast paced, creative content creation, development, and corporate communications role was a baptism by fire and has taught me so many invaluable life and professional lessons. After close to three years in this position, I am have strong corporate ties to the Boston business community and beyond, as well as confidence in almost any situation, such as communications development, fundraising, and event management. I have led board meetings and regularly take the lead role within the organization for projects and outreach. I am responsible for every piece of written word that leaves the organization -- from messaging to brochures to social media -- and have an expertise in brand management.
I work closely with my colleagues and enjoy the solidarity of large group efforts as well as the responsibility of solo assignments. I work well under pressure and meet deliverables.
It's been an honor to devote so much of myself to Back on My Feet, but I am ready for the next move in my personal and professional growth.
