I am Subhra Prasanta Das, a hardworking and versatile media professional who constantly yearns for more and more learning as her professional experience and knowhow enriches with each passing day. I have completed my MA in Mass Communication from the University of Leicester, UK in 2010 and have overall 13 years of extensive work experience in different aspects of media (Journalism/ Digital and traditional marketing/ events/ research) in UK and India. Currently working as a senior reporter with The Statesman, an English daily newspaper founded in 1875, India. I cover stories of human rights, lower courts, specials requiring investigation but I cover other important issues and city reporting as well. I have done book reviews and have written an editorial for an international online news website too. My international professional and academic exposure have enhanced my understanding of the needs of domestic as well as international readers/viewers keeping in mind the cultural and societal differences and requirements. If the need be, I can smoothly mingle my writing, investigative and editing skills with digital marketing techniques. Review of my credentials will confirm that I am capable of serving as the catalyst for achieving revenue objectives and organic growth through effective contributions. My goal is to transit my enthusiasm, creativity and experience into a position, where I continue to provide the strategic and tactical leadership critical to retaining valued customers of an organization. I am certain that my presence in your team will prove to be beneficial to your organization.
