I develop and implement communication strategies for select departments within Taco Bell.
A typical work day is a combination of meetings, creative projects, and writing. I collaborate with multiple departments and teams to spread the word about the initiatives they are working on to the rest of the company. We use a variety of platforms to communicate these initiatives including digital monitors, emails, newsletters, an internal website, and videos. I create content and help manage each of those platforms.
Collaborating with other people is vital to what I do. Being able to manage multiple projects and prioritize those projects is another necessity. And having a drive and hunger to do more than what is asked of you will always leave an impression.
