Lets see how it goes!

Well this is what I think we should do. Move the What do you do for a living poll into this forum and sticky it. That way everyone can see exactly what sector of the workforce everyone is in so they can identify posters that are in similar fields. Next we start a specific thread for each of those sectors of the workforce that are listed on the poll. I believe there are 31 of them. Within each sub thread those posters that are in that sector post their location/specific role/ and career level. That should get those looking for help to the right people. Then within each of these sub threads people can put postings about job opportunities/job searches/etc. Just out of curiosity it would be fun to then add a thread about success stories to track how effective this method is and then it would allow us to make changes as we see fit. TI am more than willing to essentially run this part of the site if Taco doesnt want to assign a real moderator to this forumn. Thoughts?

Nice, thanks for getting this started. I got the delayed pink slip about 2 weeks ago. I could have relocated (SF, NYC, or Chicago), but the adjustment for cost of living was awful, and the implications it would have for my family (wife would have to go back to work full time, 1 year old would have to go to full time daycare) made that decision easy for me. Not to mention I would miss going to Broncos home games:Whaaaa!: . So, I have a job until September 30th, after that I have a decent severance package. I am looking now, but will start aggressively pursuing something in the summer. Hoping to time it right so that I can start elsewhere and bank the severance. We shall see. It's like gambling really.

What do you do?

MY title is "Manager, Rich Media Production Services". I work for Google (they acquired the company I have been with since 2001, DoubleClick). My group develops solutions for Online Display ads, you know the ads that expand, play video, allow for user interaction. All those ads that irritate you across the web :D . WE add tracking metrics that allow for our clients to get more in depth reporting from their online campaigns rather than just impressions and click counts.

I would really prefer to get back into a client facing role like account or campaign management, rather than managing. Babysitting and administrative stuff is not my cup of tea, but it is a role I took because I thought that is the direction I needed to go. Not digging it so much.

Miss I.

I think that is an excellent idea.
