Well, after a solid 13 months at my previous job at an Interactive Marketing Agency, I have been released back into the job market to reinvent/remarket/regain my professional self once again. In this particular time of recession and layoffs, it is a bit of a scary challenge. However, within just hours of announcing to the world that yours truly is seeking employment, there was a flood of those willing to come to my rescue! (This just confirms my dedication to social media…)
I was shocked to see the immediate response of my peers. Here is a peak:
And then of course, you have your typical haters…coincidentally long time friend:
So having been unemployed just shy of 5 days (and during a holiday weekend) things are still looking up! People say that when one door closes, a window opens. I think I have hopped on this believer’s bandwaggon. Question:
1. Obama: for increasing Cobra Healthcare coverage to 65% percent, even though I didn’t vote for you. Whoop whoop!
2. Apple: for selling me this bomb-diggity computer that I have begun my job search on. Also, and the sales guy, Matt: for telling me about the free open bar happy hour at Icon downtown. So clutch!
3. Twitter: for allowing me to scream from the roof-tops, “I NEED A JOB!” And all those who responded to help!!
