In case you didn’t know or hadn’t heard, I was downsized on March 4. Yep, no full-time job at the moment.
But that’s okay.
(Your sentiment is still appreciated, however.)
The last two weeks have been quite the flurry of activity. Basically, hit up all my contacts – and surprisingly to me, I have a TON. Amazing. And everyone’s been extremely helpful so far. I’ve nabbed leads on a few jobs in the area and am pursuing them. I’ve also been given a few leads on a couple of shorter-term contracts, which I’ve also been chugging after.
It’s quite the experience, let me tell you. Nothing at all like a few years back, when I was let go at the last radio station I worked at, due to an ownership change and utter purge (to go automated). At that time, I wasn’t a professional writer, had little contacts within the media field, and the bulk of my experience lay in retail. Which I had decided to dump years prior before going to radio.
