Assisting a News Organization

One of the most challenging and rewarding jobs I had was with The Japan Times. Having been hired to assist them for a Special Report about the Opportunities in Paraguay, it was very educational and new for me. But after 3+ months of office work, I was honoured to receive a great reference letter from them. I’d like to share this with all of you. Here’s what my Project Manager wrote:

To Whom It May Concern:

The Japan Times

This letter is my personal recommendation for Lorena Laterra. Until just recently, I have been Lorena’s immediate supervisor of 3 months of extensive work in Paraguay. Lorena assisted me in as a project assistant and made sure things were done on time and the right way. I found her to be consistently pleasant, tackling all assignments with dedication and a smile.

Besides being a joy to work with, Lorena is a take-charge person who is able to present creative ideas and communicate the benefits toward the team as well towards the clients and people that we are in touch with. She has successfully developed several connections for our project that have resulted in increased productivity. During her tenure, we saw an increase productivity and time management in the best possible way. The success of the project was a direct result of the communications and intermediations implemented by Lorena.

Though she was an asset to our project, Lorena was also extraordinarily helpful in other areas of the project. In addition to writing an translating interviews and paperwork, Lorena assumed a strong role in setting up meetings, inspiring and motivating others in the team.

I highly recommend Lorena for employment, projects and as a potential partner even. She is a team player and would make a great asset to any organization.
