Reverse Job Listing: Traci Lee
After 8 years in professional newsrooms – where I’ve assigned, edited, and reported stories while creating a long-term editorial calendar targeting various events and projects throughout the year (from Olympics coverage to live-blogging award shows) – I’m turning my eye toward more creative responsibilities and seeking freelance opportunities.
In a nutshell: I can write, produce videos, podcast, and project manage. I have diverse experiences in communications and digital media, so please get in touch and I can share more information about my work!
I’m a storyteller, whether it’s writing the narrative or helping others find what the story is. My background in journalism gives me a strong skill-set that is useful in all environments: I can write well (and explain a variety of concepts to general audiences), I know how to research and fact check, and I understand the importance of deadlines.
I’m extremely organized. I can balance long-term and short-term projects simultaneously, while thinking ahead to challenges or road blocks that may hinder progress or success.
I can pick up new programs and platforms quickly. I’m always seeking opportunities to build new skills.
I am a team player. I thrive in environments where collaboration is essential, and know that no one person succeeds in a vacuum.
