My New Infographic Resume

12 Aug

I’ve written a few times about infographic resumes on Mashable, and each time, I feel like a hypocrite, because I don’t have an infographic resume. Well, folks, not anymore!

Freelance designer Snow White Powers designed my new infographic resume (embedded below). I enlisted her help, because she did an amazing job redesigning my business cards last year. I asked her to maintain my business card theme in the new resume template, and I’m really pleased with it.

First Week at Mashable

29 May

Woosh! It has been a crazy two weeks! Two weeks ago, I said goodbye to The New York Times, where I served as a social media consultant. The weekend following that, my Mom got married (re-married). And this week, I joined Mashable as a features editorial assistant, just a month after they celebrated the opening of their New York office.

I’m working with Managing Editor Sharon Feder on writing and editing supported features posts, while also collaborating with the entire features team: Josh Catone (features editor), Matt Silverman (associate features editor), Zachary Sniderman (features editorial assistant), Stephanie Marcus (features editorial assistant), and Amy-May Elliott (features writer).

Because Mashable is a small company, I’m excited to also have the opportunity to collaborate with everyone else as time goes by. Within the first week, I already feel like a part of the team. And if I had to sum up my first week in three words…

  • Awesome: Lame word, I know. But it’s always my fall-back word to describe things that are… well… awesome.
  • Inspiring: The company culture is open and encouraging. I feel inspired to create. It’s a great vibe.
  • Busy: It’s a positive sign when a company isn’t afraid to throw you right in there. After a quick orientation on my first day, I edited a few posts. And by the end of the week, I was averaging three to four posts edited per day. And I even wrote two posts! Needless to say, there wasn’t a moment to spare. It’s a fast-paced place.

Special thanks to the Mashable team for welcoming me with open arms. Here’s to a budding career at one of the top blogs in the world!

Getting a Job for My Ego

28 Feb
Above: If I don’t get a job soon, I’m going to have to find more inspiration from bathroom wall drawings. This one isn’t really reassuring.

Is anyone else out there looking for a post-graduation job? Does anyone else out there have thousands of dollars in school loans encroaching on their life? Does anyone else out there despise the economic meltdown? Does anyone else just wish that they’d win a million dollars and be set for life?

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Well, too bad. That’s life. It’s kind of sad. But do you know what I did to try to make myself feel better about not getting any post-graduation offers?

I made a new page on my website, catered towards my ego – it’s all about me in the Press. It’s a list of  sites, articles, and brochures that are all about me. I’ve also attached my resume in case any employers happen upon it.

I’m going to find a job. My ego hates me!
