Find Job Opportunities at DMA2011
With the national unemployment rate as high as it is, it’s easy to get discouraged and start believing that you’ll never land the job you were meant to have. But remember this old saying: a quitter never wins, and a winner never quits. If you’re interested in landing a social media marketing job and nobody around you is hiring, it may be time to pull out the big guns in your search. Here are a couple of tips on how you can find social media and direct marketing positions with companies actively looking for new talent.
• Get yourself out there by networking at digital marketing seminars and conferences. This is the place where you can meet people like yourself and get valuable tips on job opportunities in your field, and talk directly with companies looking to fill direct marketing positions.
• Start attending job fairs. There are a lot of companies that don’t advertise job openings traditionally and reserve their opportunities for events that attract hundreds and even thousands of people at a time.
• Use your talents. If you’re already well versed in social media marketing and you’re not using every tool at your disposal to get yourself noticed through various online channels, like social media sites, discussion forums, and your own blog, you’re wasting your abilities.
If you’re looking for social media marketing events that can help boost your visibility and possibly give you leads on direct marketing positions, set your sights on the DMA2011 Conference & Exhibition taking place this October in Boston. An event this big only happens once a year, so unless you want to be in the same boat in another 12 months, make haste and book your reservation now at www.dma11.org.
