After a long and sometimes frustrating job search, I’ve landed a position that starts Monday with a fun snack foods brand which integrates my passion for marketing (on- and off-line) and food.
I’ll be starting Monday at Pirate Brands as a Field Marketing Manager for NorCal. It’s a dynamic role, where you get to use prior experience in public relations, field and guerrilla marketing, and some aspects of social media to develop brand equity and support sales in the region.
I wanted to thank everyone who helped along the way, lent me an ear to listen to me vent, and passed along my resume during these last few months of searching. I also wanted to give some advice to those who are still on the hunt; be flexible. Be flexible with the job title you’ve honed in on and the lead source. Not sure if you want to work with a recruiter? Give it a try. By the fifth recruiter lead, just when I was ready to give up, but it lead to a great fit. It’s not the title of community manager, social media or marketing associate/analyst I may have been isolating my search for. Just keep putting yourself out there as you never know what could be around the corner.
