Another Job Hire from reading this blog

Previously, we heard that Andrew read this blog and got a job, now more success stories that people are connecting –and getting jobs from reading the web strategy blog, this is great news. I’ve been given permission to publish this email from Jonathan:

Hi Jeremiah,

Thanks for your DM. It would be my pleasure to share my story… one of your tweets (almost two months ago) mentioned your job feed on your site. Feeling quite unsettled in my current position, I click and found what looked to be a perfect job. I fired off my resume and received a call the next day from the hiring manager. After a series of calls and an intense day of interviews, I received an offer! My new job is Web Director at the Association of Corporate Counsel. It’s a logical step in my career and should involve a good deal of strategy and operations.

I gave my official notice today — my manager was in a state of shock. I, on the other hand, am so excited to move.

Best regards,

Jonathan Kash
PS Aside from my gratitude for all you do for the community (including the job feed), I certainly owe you a drink! I’ll be blogging about my experience once the department knows (law firms are such a strange environment).

Congrats Johnathan, I’ll take that drink, red wine is a fav.

You can find jobs, connect with others, and read other case studies by clicking the “on the move” section. Or, see the Web Strategy Job Board, where recruiters are posting jobs (paid) and a dynamic listing is available.

  • Congrats to Jonathan on his new job. I hope to write to you someday with a story of similar success.

    I read about Andrew’s good fortune earlier this year, and have been pushing myself surely but slowly, building and managing a few sites in order to learn the ins and outs of social media and web strategy. My goal is to leverage that experience and transition to a career as a web strategist or web project manager someday.

  • This is great! I love seeing success stories of people connecting on the digital frontier! After I came to Outrider, there were a lot of blog posts out there about my move and I got all sorts of feedback from people saying that they were more encouraged to start reaching out through their favorite blogs and social channels.

    Jonathan, when similar stories start coming to you, I hope you are just as inspired by their support as I was! Thanks again to Jeremiah and anyone else out there who help bring more people together…after all if we aren’t helping each other, there really would not be much of a point in calling it ‘social’ media!)

    (btw Jeremiah, we just barely missed running into each other at OMMA Social in NY this week!)

  • Thanks for the congrats, and Jeremiah, let me know when you’re going to be in DC.

    Andrew, would you believe I already have two lunches lined up with people I met through blogging? Connecting with people is key and I’m honored to be part of this “community.”

  • Andrew, Jonathan this is great guys!

    This is great! I love seeing success stories of people connecting on the digital frontier! But we should not forget that there is a big recession period is going on and definitely it was a very hard truth for us but we shouldn’t disappoint with it. We should face the problem as we all know that life is not a bed of roses so we should have patience and i hope the recession period will be end as soon as possible. Great post and I look forward to reading more! :).My goal is to leverage that experience and transition to a career as a web strategist or web project manager someday.

  • The internet is truly a great way to find what you enjoy as a hobby. To perfect it and practice on your own pet projects and then take it into a paying position where you are doing exactly what you want, with a hopefully good paycheck, in a growing industry. Electronic is where everything is going!
