Lauren Pitman

I'm a communications professional with a combined nine-ish year's worth of experience in journalism, PR, marketing and content management. I started my journey at UniSA, studying Journalism, then moved on to writing about music (gig and CD reviews), to social media marketing, to arts publicity, to where I am now, in editing and project coordination for higher education. I'm a word nerd and love to work on pretty much any type of content.

Q & A

Whats the best thing to happen to you in your career to date?

Carrying out publicity activities for the Adelaide Festival of Arts was pretty special. Not only did I get to meet an array of incredible artists, musicians and writers, I also got to work with some of the most inspiring colleagues, and have fun all at the same time (even with the crazy work hours).

What does a typical work week look like for you?:

I core role is a Learning Materials Coordinator and Editor, and I complete freelance projects around that.

Describe your working environment in a few sentences..

For my 9-5 I work in an office in Adelaide. At home, I have a cosy home office.

What sets you apart from other freelancers in your industry?

I have worked with and for a number of different industries, including small business, education, arts, media, hospitality, customer service, and sales. As such, there's not a lot that I'm unfamiliar with, so I'm able to take on a lot of different types of projects.

What are the tools of your trade?

The tools of my trade include my PC, Microsoft Office Suite, Adobe Creative Suite, and my trusty iPhone.

Do you collaborate with others? If yes, how does that works?

I primarily collaborate with educational designers and multimedia producers to produce learning content for online delivery. This works through clear and consistent communication, planning, and sharing of ideas and expectations.

Whats been the biggest freelancing lesson to date?

The biggest freelancing lesson I have learned to date is to keep a record of everything and to ensure you have all you need to complete the task, and anything you don't have, ask!
