Careers for lovers of words
I’ll be participating in McGill University’s career panel for English Literature graduates this Monday, April 26th at 5 p.m. The panel will be held at Thomson House (3650 McTavish) on McGill’s downtown campus.
I’ll be speaking about my experience transitioning away from the traditional academic route, job searching and networking tools. I’m looking forward to meeting the students and sharing experiences.
I’m a bilingual strategic and versatile communications consultant with more than 15 years of experience. I work with clients both locally and internationally.
I’ve worked as a newspaper reporter, internal communications advisor, features writer, e-learning editor, and deputy editor of a national magazine. My writing has been featured in lifestyle and fashion magazines, academic journals, corporate communications, fiction anthologies, environmental newsletters & magazines, national news services, and local publications.
Before launching my freelance writing business, I worked as the deputy editor of a national wildlife magazine, an e-learning editor at Thomson NetG, and a teacher of English as a second language.
I hold an M.Phil (Middle English Literature) from University of Oxford, a B.A. (English Literature) from McGill University and a diploma (Graphic Design) from Concordia University.
