Just what the Web needs. Another blogger. Why would you want to make “Let’s Talk Turkey” a regular blog stop? Well, first of all, see that pic in the header? That’s me. See that machete? Well, if that’s not intimidating enough….
Seriously, if you are in a job search, this blog will bring you important and interesting information that will aid you in that search. I’m a recruiter, or headhunter — who specializes in digital and traditional media. Once I saw that folks were desperately in need of resume help, I opened up my own resume-writing business (if you’ll pardon the plug), where I have penned more than 500 resumes. My entire career has been in the media industry, having spent more than 10 years as a marketing executive for companies that include The New York Times Company, The Walt Disney Company, Primedia and Conde Nast.
My goal here is to give you some “behind-the-scenes” insight into the job search process. What works on an interview? What doesn’t? What works on a resume? What doesn’t? What are some of the wackiest, most ridiculous stories that I can share with you regarding some interviews I’ve had to withstand? Besides all of this, I plan on covering the media marketplace and the changes that are occurring in today’s rapidly evolving jobs landscape.
I plan on talking turkey, plain and simple. Make sure to talk with me. Drop me a note and tell me what you think. Ask me a question. Let’s make this a two-sided conversation.
