***  One Paragraph Pitch:

 

Hello from Singapore!

 

I’m reaching out to you, fellow JOTW’ers with an unusual request. I’m looking for a full-time or part-time role in corporate communications, PR or marketing, in Singapore or a role for which I can work from Singapore. I am a strategic communications professional, with over a decade of experience in marketing, business development and corporate communications (in USA and Asia). I’ve completed my MBA from India and graduated from MS in Corporate Communications from New York University. My diverse professional experience ranges from working for a leadership consulting company, a retail bank, interning and working with some of the best PR firms in New York to co-running and successfully managing a healthcare education start-up firm (most recently). If you or anyone you know would like a professional who can assist in anything from setting up a business in Asia, marketing, or writing articles, managing local teams, social media, to even financial/accounting work, I’m your go-to person!

You can find out more about me on http://www.linkedin.com/in/khyatimehta or email me at khyati.mehta@yahoo.com. My cell phone is +65 9010 8041. I’d be happy to provide more credentials if required.
