Bethany Venable

I'm job hunting thanks to my husband landing a great new opportunity that will take us to the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. But I'm looking for more than just a job, I'm looking for a great fit that will be beneficial to both me and the organization.

I have expanded my toolkit as a communicator over the past 10 years thanks to a series of professional advances that have taken me from broadcast journalist to communication services leader. I'm grateful for all the different turns my career has taken because it has allowed me to approach projects and challenges with a holistic perspective.

My knowledge of video and audio production, social media strategy, news writing and brand journalism enable me to develop communications and integrated marketing plans that deliver measurable results. I am a dedicated and experienced public relations practitioner who serves as a university spokesperson. My media background means I'm comfortable in front of the camera, commanding the room or connecting one-on-one. I embrace fast-paced environments and thrive in a deadline driven atmosphere.

I also have an Emmy, but that might be a story for another day.

In my spare time, I enjoy running, spending time with my family, exploring the great outdoors and busting out a killer Adele lip sync.
