Uh, I just realized I kind of 'broke' a rule of networking here...
Which is to network even when you DON'T need a job...
Currently an MBA student (concentration in Marketing). Graduated Ithaca College with a degree in music and minor in advertising/public relations.
Worked all sorts of 'retail' and 'service' jobs through school.
Volunteered and interned in various positions that combined both my love for the arts (mainly performance) and marketing/advertising.
Currently, I am an Assistant to the Executive Director at Alternatives, a non-profit human service agency based in Whitinsville, MA. For those in the 'corporate' world, an Exec. Director would be like a CEO. In my position, I touch on many different aspects from marketing to finances, and the whole gamut from programmatic issues to administrative issues. What I miss in pay (vs. a corporate job) I make up for experience. How many people my age get to attend Board meetings? Or Management Team meetings? I'm learning all I can.
For those of you who use it, I'm on LinkedIn, which is ... social networking for adults... but not THAT KIND of adult site... LOL: http://www.linkedin.com/in/hqp921
Might be helpful to set up a profile and start networking and building your contacts!
On top of going to grad school PT and working FT, I am also a musician - I currently teach 2 students, but at it's peak, I think I was teaching 6 students a week. I actually have two more prospects lined up. I play in a band, as well as play solo gigs. My site for that: www.hung-pham.com
or you can check out a couple vids on YouTube: www.youtube.com/hqp921
I am always looking to help out in some sort of marketing/advertising situation, especially as it relates to the arts, though it doesn't specifically need to be. I am well versed in "the formal" side of things: writing press releases, etc; and the 'creative' side of things: Creating brochures, postcards, etc. using Photoshop, Illustrator, and In-Design.
