Hey all! Today I need your help. Not for a cat, for me.
Some of you know a little bit about my "real job" and some of you don't. I know it's hard to believe, but I don't sit around watching cute cat videos all day (although wouldn't that be fun?!). For my actual career, my official title is Director of Marketing Communications Strategies, which is just fancy-pants for I send emails and am in charge of social media. It's not really that simple, of course, but that's about as easy as I can explain it.
Well, that was my title until about two weeks ago, actually. After six years with eDiets.com, it's officially my time to move on and set out for bigger and better things. I had a great time working there, learned a lot of things and met some fabulous people, but they're cutting back a lot and focusing on very specific things, and email marketing, as it turns out, wasn't one of them. I was let go, or more specifically, my "position was eliminated," but am still technically helping out for the next few weeks to help transition.
Some people would be sad about this, but I'm happy! I am excited for new challenges, a new place, new people and -- hopefully with your help! -- working for a company or cause I truly love. I would love to use my skills for some sort of pet-related company (bonus points if they have an office dog or cat).
So how can you help?
Our network of Cute followers is huge! Here is my LinkedIn profile so you can see exactly what I do (Are you on LinkedIn? Let's connect!). I've had the joy of making so many friends here, and I am hoping someone knows someone who knows someone who is hiring for my perfect position!
I am looking for something in the email marketing or social media field. I live in South Florida and am not really looking to move. I would, however, LOVE to work remote! I do my best work on my beach balcony, supervised by my two kitties.
Some job titles that might match what I can do: Director of Communications, Email Marketing Director, Email Manager, Social Media Manager, Community Manager, Content Director, Managing Editor, Senior Editor, Person With the Best Shoes in the Office.
Do any of you know anyone who might be hiring for my dream pet-related position? Or maybe you know of an awesome position in an amazing company (that isn't pet-related, but would be perfect for me!)?
If you do, please feel free to email me at my (more professional) email address: writedorian (at) gmail (dot) com with any links or info. And please feel free to pass along my LinkedIn profile page to anyone you think might be interested.
I really appreciate any help you all might have. I'm over here combing job listings every day and I just know I'll find something fabulous!
