Dear future workmates,
As you might or might not have heard, a new Content Marketer is joining the team, i.e. me, Jane Williams. I will join the team on the 1st of March and will work under the supervision of my manager, Marc Martinez.
I will be responsible for the planning, creating, and sharing of valuable content to attract and convert prospects into customers as the company switches to a new brand identity. These tasks fit me like a glove, since I am a passionate writer and an avid reader, and I am always in the search for the best ways to create a compelling story.
I have a background in Sales & Marketing both with regards to my educational background and my professional experience, which offer me insights into how good copy can make a product appealing for a customer. I do intend to write compelling copy so our product becomes irresistible for our leads.
When I am not reading, or writing, I love baking bread and doing yoga. (I know, textbook millennial material).
I am looking forward to the stories we are going to write (no pun intended). See you all on orientation day! I cannot wait to get to know all of you soon!
