The Downsized Diaries

My journey to my next career.

Reformed Laid-Off LinkedIn User

I changed my ways, sir!” –Thomas Sams in the movie “Lean on Me”

After all the great comments regarding my Laid-Off on LinkedIn post, I had no choice but to admit the error of my ways and reform. So, with all the contrition of Thomas Sams on the rooftop with Joe Clark in “Lean on Me”, I took the advice of the readership and made my title reflect my laid-off status.  My title now reads:

Web Marketing Strategist w/20 Yrs PC Industry Experience Seeking Social Media Marketing Opportunity at Technology Company or Social Media Agency

(See my full profile here.)

My original post on this subject drew the 2nd larget amount of traffic, and largest number of coments on The Downsized Diaries to date.  I am grateful to all the recruiters and industry professionals who took the time to give me feedback:  Julie Walraven, Lindsay Olson, Leighsah, Susan,and Lisa Creech”Bruiser” Bledsoe.

  1. Bruiser! Many ha’s. I’m so glad you changed it; you deserve to take the cred — you earned every bit of it.

    Now, I haven’t seen you at the boxing gym lately. Come on, girl, I need a sparring partner and you would enjoy cleaning my clock for me wouldn’t you?
