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.
