Katharine Holmes Social Media and Graphic Design Victoria, BCI am looking for a full-time job, either as a graphic designer or as a social media community manager (or both).

As a social media pioneer, I helped to put Victoria on the map as a leader in social media. I have also been a key part of bringing five WordCamp and Social Media Camp events to Victoria since 2009.

Over an 18 year career, I have worked with hundreds of organizations on website, graphic design and social media projects – always on a contract basis.

A few years ago, I decided enough was enough and I wanted a regular, stable, predictable paycheque (not a huge paycheque, but a regular job). I have pursued this objective by applying for positions here and there with no success.

For those who know me, this is baffling. I often hear people say things like, “Who wouldn’t hire you?” The reality is I haven’t called out all contacts and “friends in high places” because I was comfortable enough. Today, that all changes. I am now calling on everyone in my network who knows of a job I can excel at and a fabulous workplace where I can make a meaningful contribution, to please introduce me.
