Keys to Success in the Approach (The How): 

  • High volume, high efficiency: We’re busy here, and part of your job is to support critical communications infrastructure and keep planned work moving forward. You can juggle competing demands and prioritize without sacrificing quality, get back to people in a timely manner, and take pride in providing clear, helpful information.  
  • Meticulous attention to detail: You aim to leave things better than you found them. As the lead for e-communications writing, departmental copyediting, and day-to-day management of subscriber e-lists and website content, you are proactive in noticing and fixing things that others might overlook.  
  • Initiative, ingenuity, and agency: You dive right in with proactive ideas and creative solutions identifying opportunities or new ways of doing things and quickly adjusting when faced with changes in internal priorities or external context. You often consult with others but are also capable of getting things rolling without much guidance if the goals and guardrails are clear. 
  • Manage Up and Across: You keep your supervisor and your peers informed and ask for input, guidance, or a decision from them or colleagues in other divisions when you need it. You can relate well to a variety of individuals and have a reputation as a collaborative team player.
