I'd Hire Me.

If you haven't heard, I'm looking for a job. You heard it right, I am on the dole. Searching for a's a job unto itself though. It's emotionally exhausting. Every day you have to psych yourself up. Hey! You're talented! You're super smart! Witty! A team player! Organized! Strategic! Hard working! Hell, I'd Hire Me!!

Some days, despite all best efforts, nothing happens. I remind myself that to get a single job, you have to put A LOT Of irons in the fire. Every few days there are phone calls. And on the best days, there are interviews. On those days, after making sure I have someone to help with Max, I pull myself together, make myself look professional and remind myself that I have a lot to offer. I have over ten years experience in the marketing industry. I've worked for big companies, little companies, agency side and in-house. I'm an award winning blogger and writer. People like me, damn it. And when I get into an interview I treat it like a two way discussion, because not only is the person I'm talking with trying to figure out if I'd be a good fit for their company, I'm trying to figure out if they will be a good fit for what I'm looking for in an employer.

So, if you are a prospective employer, this is what I look like after being up for 15+ hours and counting, modeling my new pajama bottoms (a Christmas gift made by my talented friend, Jennifer), while writing a blog and importing cds into my iTunes library. Not to worry, future boss, my business casual wardrobe includes less colourful pants.

  4. I love those pajamas. I have run out, I am now on my husband's pajama stash.

    I'd hire me too. And you.
