This has seen me research, conduct interviews and write feature length and news articles for national magazines and newspapers in the Gulf, the UK and Egypt. Through this experience, I have written on a range of topics, from education, business, and health, to women's affairs, music and fashion. In the course of this work, I took over several project management roles, overseeing the development and creation (from scratch, and on top of my normal daily work) of several magazine supplements - one was on education in Qatar; and the second was a magazine for a local shopping mall. This ensured I managed both full-time and freelance journalists, designers, sales team members and photographers to bring together the magazines, as well as deal with outside sources for information and products.
More recently, I have gained experience in creating marketing campaigns focused on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Wordpress blog posts. It has been a great opportunity, not only to create both SEO relevant social media posts and web content (I rewrote the websites for several IT companies in the Middle East and North America). It has also allowed me to create targeted campaigns to reach out to potential customers and encourage online interactions.
Throughout my work experience, I have had the fantastic opportunity to develop some design skills. This has allowed me to pick up skills in InDesign and Photoshop, and some basic skills in HTML coding. I created the content, as well as the design and layout, of digital banners (for Facebook) as well as offline leaflets that could be hand distributed.
I am extremely proactive and willing to work above and beyond what is expected of me. Additionally, I am more than willing to take on new challenges and push my boundaries - which has been proven by my willingness to write on IT and RFID tracking (areas I had no previous experience in) as well as digital publishing and e-publishing.
I am more than happy to provide samples of previously published work upon request.
