Position: Website Content Manager/Developer
-- June - October, 2006

In this position I worked as a webmaster and content developer on the NeighborWorks® America website for a period of six months, on a contract assignment through The Creative Group. NeighborWorks® America is a national nonprofit association that was created by Congress in 1978. The association's mission is to provide financial support and reinvestment opportunities for low-income and economically underprivileged communities on a national basis. It does this through homeownership education, training and assistance; community economic development; and extensive community-based revitalization efforts.

My job as webmaster involved creating, developing, and editing new website content and materials, as well as the upkeep and maintenance of all existing content for both the association's public and private member websites. This included the preparation and posting of PDF, Word, and PowerPoint files as well as other resource materials for the website; preparation and online editing of news release and feature articles; the development of new website sections, i.e. the annual awards sections; compilation and editing of the NeighborWorks e-newsletter; and creation/production of graphics and photos using Adobe Creative Suite software, all in support of the association's ongoing nonprofit activities. Working as a webmaster for this association gave me a thorough understanding of how to maintain a large website using the Content Management System Macromedia Contribute, as well as a thorough familiarity with the website's extensive navigation, architecture, and content sections. In addition, I also gained an understanding about the important work NeighborWorks® does as a national nonprofit to help underprivileged communities across the country.
