Northern Virginia Community College: Workforce Development Division blog
(blogs.nvcc.edu/workforce)
I saw an opportunity to increase NOVA Workforce Development Division's brand awareness through content marketing; beginning in early 2015 I began to write articles that would connect regional economic trends and job outlooks with programs offered through the Workforce Development Division. The articles below show my ability to pair journalistic style with brand awareness, creating informational marketing that also promotes NOVA's programs. After I finished each article, I shared it on social profiles and provided links to staff and business development managers to promote on their networks.

Articles originally written for Boston Ethnic Food Examiner

I shared my love of food through writing articles for Examiner.com, as a hobby that allowed me to discover new cuisines and keep my writing skills fresh.
