I found a job!
I am now a project manager for The Economist Group in their commercial unit. My new boss said she hired me in part because I had managed long term projects (election coverage) and dealt with short term deadlines (editing hourly newscasts.) #DeadlineJedi.
I thought it’d be fun to depict my job search numbers in an infographic, so here it is, created by Elizabeth Carey Smith of The Letter Office.
People are asking whether my Vine Resume and its media coverage got me hired. I actually got this job through old fashioned networking, a referral by a friend. But I would say that the Vine Resume did impress them once I was in the door.
Many thanks to all the friends, family and professional contacts I met who helped me and cheered me on along the way.
