Purposeful Blogging Hiatus

Thanks, Lynne, for inspiring the title for this post.

I’ve been away for a while, so let’s get to the juicy stuff. I left my job. I can’t go into details because I was part owner of the company and there are some details still in negotiation. But, there were legal issues and shady business practices that I found out about, so I hauled ass and got the hell out of there before I lost my shirt. Financially, I’ll be OK for a few months, and I have already had one interview. In the meantime, I have been looking for work, cooking up a storm, and keeping the house spotless. If any of you out there know of a job opportunity in the Portland area in Advertising or Marketing, leave me a comment & I’ll send you my resume.

Good luck with your new adventure!

Most of my remaining Portland contacts are in strange academia fields, but if I hear of anything, I'll let you know.

Well, I dont know that my company does any job headhunter type of stuff in marketing and advertising, but we do have a need for an account manager that pays pretty well..its in the welss fargo building (tallest bldg in downtown)..let me know if you want to know more..and I can also be on the lookout for any sorts of positions in your chosen field.
Obviously you ought to try Wieden and Kennedy.

Hey Josh,

I've pretty much hit up all the Portland ad agencies, plus a few semi-related companies. Hopefully something will come up soon. In the meantime, if you hear of anything in advertising keep me in mind. Thanks!!!

Wowza -- that's news!! I bet you'll find an awesome job in no time. Until then, how would you feel about flying to Minneapolis to clean my apartment?? Not so much?? Thought I'd ask...

Wishing you a short job search! Glad you made it out before you got dragged down in any sort of shady mess!

I'm not help in the Portland job search, but I wish you a bunch of luck. Oh & if you want to come to MN to make my apt spotless, I'll keep the booze on an open tap. Of course, there's not enough booze for me to clean my own place, so I doubt you'd be up for that. Anyway, good luck!!
