Anna Muckerman, Content Writer for Resume.io
Freelance journalist with a passion for research and writing. I enjoy helping others find their perfect job by offering creative writing tips and an in-depth look at an industry's hiring process. I'm always searching for an underreported story and the best way to tell it, with the majority of my work focusing on profiles, cuisine and culture. Previous stories have appeared in The Washington Post, The Baltimore Sun and the BBC. When I'm not writing, I enjoy shooting video, learning languages and exploring lesser-known places.
