Five weeks ago I became a free agent. Perhaps more accurately the recession paid me a visit.
Fine. I was laid off.
Since then I've been pretty focused on three things--networking, interviewing and freelancing. Not to mention the mortgage, food and money.
OK, six things.
So I'm pleased to note I've found a new home. I'm now the Director of Marketing at Empower MediaMarketing.
It's a hybrid of everything I want in a job--applying marketing, public relations and social media. It's a client-side role, but I'll also work on some client projects as well.
Empower manages every facet of media--buying, planning, strategy and consulting. They also have a full-service digital practice and a consumer research team with a set of proprietary tools.
They have many stories to be told and I can't wait to get started.
I have many people to thank for helping me through my transition and I'm following up with each of you individually.
In my zeal to announce this, I took Prezi.com for a test run. Unfortunately I did the presentation on my desktop. So instead of sharing a link to the online presentation, I can only offer you the whole honking thing as a zip file. If you're interested in Prezi, check it out. If you're on the fence, I'll manage expectations and note that it takes the above content and makes it look (much) more interesting.
