EXPERIENCE

OVER60, CONTENT PRODUCER

March 2016 – March 2018

I began at Over60, a popular online news and lifestyle publication for Australian baby boomers and beyond, as a Junior Content Producer in March 2016. My duties involved pitching and covering breaking and trending news stories, crafting quality evergreen pieces about everything from travel and finance to health and entertainment as well as researching and interviewing experts, members of the community and beloved entertainment figures.

Other responsibilities included writing effective native and advertorial articles, curating content for eDMs, sourcing and editing images, uploading content to the CMS, and scheduling to social media.

In May 2017, I dropped the “Junior” and took on more writing and social media management responsibilities.

I left in March 2018 to pursue new opportunities.

INFODEC COMMUNICATIONS, JUNIOR COPYWRITER AND CASUAL ADMINISTRATOR (PART-TIME ROLE)

October 2012 – July 2015

During my time at Infodec Communications, I honed my knowledge and skills in the area of media and communications (both online and offline). Working closely with small to medium businesses, individuals, industry groups and politicians, I had the opportunity to develop effective social media strategies, distribute press releases, design and create email marketing campaigns, conduct research, and create relevant & engaging content. I worked with companies from many different areas including the media, finance, health, and legal sectors.

Over the course of my time at Infodec, I helped manage up to 10 Facebook business pages and several Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram accounts. While managing these social media accounts I learnt how to create and market content to each business’ specific client base, including the use of Facebook advertising and analytics tools.

I was also able to put my intermediate graphic design skills to use, creating infographics and images for social media, blogs and email newsletters. In addition, I have a proficient working knowledge of basic HTML which was useful in this role as I was often required to make minor edits to websites and email newsletter templates.

I left in July 2015 to travel.

September 2013 – December 2014

The digital publishing sister company of Infodec Communications, I helped coordinate and write for two of its digital magazines, Me Timeand Early Educator. The articles written for these publications required extensive research and conducting interviews with people all around Australia via the Internet.

As Freelance Media Officer for I Am A Boat Person, a charity aimed at celebrating cultural diversity within Australia and providing educational resources to asylum seekers housed in detention centres, the majority of my role involved creating and sharing images for the charity’s Instagram account.
