After feeling totally unproductive yesterday I got a phone call that turned the day into one of my most promising in terms of employment in months.Yukiko called to let me know that there was an opening at Snapfish for the Creative Marketing Manager position and was curious if I was interested. Considering that marketing that leans more toward advertising is my strength and what I have primarily worked in I was more than interested. My time with Unitrans and Bel-Ray both revolved around marketing and advertising with a dash of design. The design background helps me to better understand who I am marketing to and how I can go about reaching them most effectively.
I have to say that I am incredibly greatful to Yukiko for the referral. More than once she has helped me find out about jobs and has always been a huge encouragement and support when it comes to me finding something other than Starbucks to work at. It just goes to show that you should be greatful for your friends and them looking out for you.
Later in the evening when Jake got home, he had a listing of open positions at Eleven, Inc. that they were hiring for. Eleven Inc., being the advertising company that his company, Ntropic, partners with from time to time. So even more good news on the job front. Especially since Jake knows people at Eleven Inc.
So now less than a day later I have an interview set up for tomorrow and a bunch of job leads to follow up on. Wish me luck!
