Do you actually love not knowing something because it gives you the chance to dive in and figure it out? Do you thrive on figuring out how to get the right message to the right audience at the right time? If you answered yes to any of the above, read on.

For you, being a great communicator is more than just being an excellent writer (which you are) or knowing your way around the web, social media and print (which you do), you understand that it’s also about connecting with your audiences, whether they’re internal or external. Because great storytellers always have an audience to serve. You truly believe that good communications help employees feel empowered, customers feel valued, and businesses succeed. You work well with internal clients and can easily get to the heart of the business need and the strategic opportunity. You are not afraid to propose new solutions or innovative approaches, and you are always proud to exceed expectations.
