Writer For Hire® Pat Kramer to Share Career Journey With Los Angeles Inner-City High Schoolers
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Los Angeles, CA (March 25, 2016) – Writer For Hire® Pat Kramer, a veteran business copywriter and ghostwriter, today announced that she will share highlights of her 30-year career with Los Angeles inner-city high school students, on April 20, 2016 at Oscar de la Hoya High School and at Animo Inglewood High School on May 18, 2016. The two, hour-long presentations are in partnership with the Youth Business Alliance (YBA), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that focuses on bringing critical 21st century business skills and perspectives into the classroom. Pat will be presenting tips on how she went from a “wanna-be writer” in high school to a professional journalist and corporate copywriter in Los Angeles.
Writer For Hire® Pat Kramer specializes in developing informational, editorial, promotional and ghostwritten content for law firms, real estate and insurance companies, the travel and hospitality industry and a wide variety of business professionals and potential authors. Her press releases have helped first-time authors reach “best seller” status on Amazon.com, and her media outreach campaigns have elevated formerly unknown business professionals to “thought leaders” in their industries. Known as Writer For Hire® since 1990, Pat has written more than 1,000 articles for local, national and well respected industry publications.
In an effort to provide high school students with a broader perspective of what it takes to be successful, The Youth Business Alliance invited Ms. Kramer to share her experiences and achievements. The YBA was formed in 2012 with one disadvantaged school and has since grown to include 14 high schools serving roughly 350 disadvantaged students each year through its year-long after school course “Introduction to Business & Careers.”
Pat started her career as a radio news broadcaster and journalist working for radio stations in New England. To get her foot in the door of this incredibly limited and competitive industry, Pat had to work every shift around the clock, including all night at one radio station in Newport, Rhode Island, and a split shift at another, where she covered both “morning drive” and “afternoon drive.”
“I have never worked so hard in my life as I did at the start of my career,” says Pat, who notes that hard work and determination are the winning formulas for anyone starting out in the job market. “Most people in their early 20’s opt out when the going gets tough, but I stuck with it and advanced in my career to the point where I eventually got to call the shots.”
Looking back on her career of 30+ years as a news writer, ghostwriter, and marketing and public relations consultant, Pat believes the challenges she faced led to a tenacity that has helped her succeed in business when other writers have closed shop. “I believe all the challenges I have had to face ultimately gave me a wealth of experience in life, and now, I’m giving back by helping today’s youth get started on their own career path.”
As a speaker, Pat Kramer has led workshops and seminars for business professionals for the past 20 years helping them to improve their branding messages by using news-oriented press releases, professionally-written articles, and informational blogs on social media. Pat is a recognized business leader and an active member of her business and civic community in Sunland-Tujunga. She is an advocate for the humane treatment of animals and the ghostwriter of several books and memoirs.
