I want to work full-time in public affairs.
Potential job titles: policy, government affairs, government relations, regulatory affairs, political research, external relations, advocacy, corporate communications, community relations.
With 14+ years of experience in government, technology, and media, I have excellent oral and written communication skills, including an ability to explain complex information in a clear manner to lay audiences. A team player with a sense of humor and both personal and analytical skills, I want to apply my knowledge of social and civic systems and lend my passions and considerable energy.
I currently work part-time as an Information and Communication Specialist in Hamilton Town Hall and as an Adjunct Professor of “Digital Marketing and Brand Development” to MBA students at New England College. I'm also concluding my sixth year as an elected councilman. I hold a Master in Public Administration from Suffolk University and a B.S. in Sociology from Worcester State College.
"Public affairs work combines government relations, media communications, issue management, corporate and social responsibility, information dissemination, and strategic communications advice. Practitioners aim to influence public policy, build and maintain a strong reputation, and find common ground with stakeholders." [PubAffairs Ltd.]
