Sunny Skies Ahead!

I am happy to announce that, after graduating with my first Bachelor’s degree 16 years ago, and through a generous program under the Trade Act, I re-enrolled at Portland State University as a Post Baccalaureate student and will begin attending full time, starting this Monday, March 28th, 2016, to pursue a Bachelor of Arts degree in Marketing. I’ll graduate in December of 2017.

What’s Your Plan?

Get straight A’s, then start a new career! #careerchange

Why Marketing?

I love the creative process and I’ve always enjoyed advertising, branding, and video marketing. I’ve got some experience writing and creating digital content and I look forward to helping businesses connect with people in the digital space. I’m curious about how businesses can build a tribe, advertise honestly, and put people first while remaining healthy and profitable. Working in this industry is a goal of mine.

What about your job search?

My job search is officially over and will resume promptly in the fall of 2017. I’ve been working on a job search update infographic for several weeks using the infographic maker I just finished it a few days ago though, so although the infographic says “first 90 days”, I won’t officially resume the search until after I graduate.

Are you going to keep blogging?

I’ve got a few more posts to publish and after that I will continue to post intermittently as I have time. My next 3 posts will publish on April 4th, April 18th and May 2nd. It’s been fun! I’ve learned a ton over the last few months just by researching and blogging, and it’s a great way to stay connected with your peeps.

Thank You!

I want to give a big, giant, heartfelt, THANK YOU to my people for being so supportive, sending me job leads, recommending me on LinkedIn and elsewhere, introducing me to new people…and for supporting me as I pursue my next goal.

Happy Easter!

  1. That’s awesome Miles! I too, hold a post-baccalaureate certificate from PSU. Your job can go away but, your education can’t.

    1. Thanks, Peter! You’re totally right about that. I feel really grateful for the opportunity, and can’t wait to get re-enter in the world of academia after all this time.
