Hire Me to Work for You
I have worked for several years for multinational companies in the technology and internet sector, as well as advertising. I have a degree in MIS, and an MBA which I am constantly using as new challenges present themselves. I’ve worn many hats so far in my life and jobs – project manager, network engineer, systems manager, copywriter, event planner, public relations and marketer, graphic designer and translator.
I welcome offers for freelance writing assignments, photo assignments, translations and other creative endeavors. If you have an opportunity, send me the following information: Type of work needed (photography, writing, web design, etc.), Deliverable (# hours, articles, photos) and proposed Compensation.
For more information about some of my freelance work, check some of my freelance work on my site, SaraRosso.com.
For an in-depth curriculum, visit my LinkedIn profile.
Content, Commenting, and Copyright
All commentary and content on this site is solely my viewpoint and does not represent that of my employers, past or present.
I reserve the right to refuse or delete comments left on this site for any reason, especially self-promotional, inflammatory or degrading comments directed at me or other commenters.
You are welcome to link to my posts, but my content is not available for re-posting or translation without written permission.
My Photos & Photography Equipment
All photos on this site were taken by me unless otherwise noted in the post.
My photos are available for sale for personal and commercial use. For a quote, please contact me and tell me which photo you’re interested in and, if for personal or commercial/website use, dimensions needed, where it will be displayed and for how long in your email. I sell my photos on a use-by-use basis. I can also do some photo retouching and editing upon request.
Some of my images are for sale through Getty Images. Check out my Flickr page for more of my photos – you can request I license any photo directly on that photo’s page by clicking “Request to license MsAdventuresinItaly’s photos via Getty Images.”
My photos may not be copied, distributed, modified, published or displayed without written permission.
Photos were taken with a point-and-shoot Canon PowerShot S230 through March 2007, and thereafter they are mixed with shots from a Canon Rebel XTi through October 2010. I now use a Canon 7D. Visit my Amazon store for the Food Blogging & Photography section for some information on my camera, favorite lens, books, and accessories.
Reviewing Products and Accepting Samples
If a post is inspired by a friend to write about a certain place/product or if I receive a free sample, I will state it in my post, as a footnote at the bottom of the post. Most of my giveaways have been 100% on my own dime, from purchasing products to shipping costs.
I welcome review copies, products & samples, but I reserve the right to post or to not post about the place and/or product. I cannot and will not promise a post in exchange for a free sample or product. I reserve the right to state my opinion, whether good or bad, about the place and/or product, online or offline. Companies or PR agencies, you are welcome to contact me – I encourage and applaud transparency as much as possible.
If you’re interested in offering some of your product as a prize to my readers through one of my blog giveaways, please contact me.
Note: In case it’s not clear, I physically live in Italy so samples and products will have to be sent to Italy.
If you’re in PR or Marketing, make sure you read Elise’s Dos & Don’ts of Marketing to Bloggers for some good tips about getting me to reply to your email.
Advertise on this Site
Interested in advertising on my site? Send me the following information: company/url/product, size and type of ad, desired placement on site, and duration of ad. I reserve the right to refuse or ignore offers of advertising for any reason.
I do not sell links, text links, or blogroll links or participate in link exchanges. I do not insert paid links “text advertising” into my blog content or in my blogroll. I accept only graphic advertisement proposals, which will be clearly labeled as advertisements if placed on my site.
Creation and supply of graphics for advertisements are entirely the responsibility of the inquiring company and I reserve the right to refuse or request a change in the proposal for any reason.
Ask Ms. Adventures
Those posts contain all the information I know about working here, getting a visa, and finding a job. I won’t be able to help you with your specific case – I suggest you contact your local Italian consulate or speak with an immigration lawyer.
If instead you’re beyond the work-visa logistics and have already decided to move here or are living here, are interested in networking, and aren’t asking me to help you find a job, I’m especially happy to get in touch with you. Send me an email with “Ask Ms. Adventures” the subject.
I also answer food & travel-related questions, so feel free to send them my way!
Note: I may not be able to respond directly to your email or acknowledge its receipt.
How to Contact Me
Did you skip all the info I shared above about how and why it’s best to contact me? I suggest scrolling up, but here’s a shortened version:
- Link exchange, paid links, or guest posts? No.
- Product sample or review? Maybe.
- Freelance project or other work? Get in touch.
- Graphic advertisement on my site? Send me more info.
- Use one of my photos? Ask first.
