Breaking: Some woman wants a job

Icon for Post #3384

Jo Sutton called looking for work and we were suitably impressed so (instead of a career) we offered her space on our website to self-spruik. We’ve never met her. And yes, we referred her to Australia’s nonprofit job epicentre Anyhoo this is what she wrote:

nonprofit employment and jobs in Australia

This is how we picture her. Note: she may not resemble this image.

Communications professional seeking to make your organisation stand out!

If you’re looking for someone who’ll be more than just an employee, but also your organisation’s best advocate, then we need to talk!

With skills in media engagement, communication and campaigning – and a deep passion for social justice – I have the skills and the enthusiasm to make your organisation stand out.

My experience spans across local government, the not-for-profit sector and media, in both paid and voluntary positions.

I’ve worked on newspapers, magazines, websites and social media. I’ve written media releases, responses, background papers, speeches, newsletters, news articles and feature stories. I’ve developed communications strategies and campaign materials. I’ve trained people for interviews and I’ve managed media relationships.

With a Bachelor of Arts (Journalism) and the majority of a Master of Arts (International Relations), I have a firm grounding in a) good writing and b) international issues.

What you’ll find in my work is clearly communicated ideas, and well thought-out calls to action. You’ll also see the best media relationships in your organisation’s history, and greater enthusiasm from would-be supporters.

Right now, I’m looking for a job where I can make a difference – a job where my skills will help your organisation impact other people’s lives, for the better!
