Attended training courses in using the media effectively, including social networking and internet marketing.
I have always had a great passion for both writing and editing,and my recent Press Officer internship with small non-profit organisation has been the perfect platform for me to further develop my skills in this field.
I understand how a charity’s restricted resources are managed and the difficulties involved in promoting a small charitable organisation. Good at utilising available media platforms, doubling the organisations Twitter followers to several thousand in 4 months.
Good at creating stories and locate a niche for them within specialist magazines, writing interesting features and igniting public interest in projects. I am keen to build on my current experience with media relations and publicity.
Area Covered: Hampshire
Job Title: Publicity Officer intern
Description: The biggest challenge in this particular organisation was that the publicity role had not been undertaken
by any permanent, specialist member of staff, resulting in the charity"s most exciting achievements
previously going unnoticed by the general public. I therefore found that there were no constraints to
the work I could undertake in my position, which although daunting at first, gave me room to develop
my own techniques for creating and maintaining media contacts and handling press releases.
Experience in: social networking sites (Facebook, Twitter etc.) and their use to promote website traffic.
Exploring ways to address wider audiences, developing the Trust"s website and engaging in Web 2.0
features such initiating an interactive page. Promoting regular events to local newspapers and creating
databases of all successful relationships established.
