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
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 www.canva.com. 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.
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.
