Listen, if you’ve enjoyed reading Flaming Pablum for the last nine plus years, please consider doing me this one special favor: HIRE ME!
Put simply, I’m a media professional with fairly extensive experience. I’m a writer, editor, blogger and digital producer versed in a wide range of content management tools, HTML and best practices in SEO-friendly headline composition and content placement on social media. I cut my teeth in breaking news environments at established outlets like TIME Magazine, MTV News Online, MSN.com and TODAY.com. I also contributed for a little over a decade to The New Yorker, penning blurbs about upcoming events for their “Goings On About Town” section.
If you’re familiar with this blog, you already know I’m a slavishly committed native New Yorker, obsessed with myriad aspects of the city, but my interests are far ranging. I’m fairly active on social media — predominantly favoring Instagram and Facebook (but versed in others).
I am currently without a gig. Being that I’m a married father of two little kids living in Manhattan, you can probably understand the urgency of my mission. Beyond that, however, I am genuinely pining to plug back in, create and contribute. I am needing, hungry, eager, ready and positively itching to get back to work.
By hiring me — or by spreading the word to someone that might — not only will you be freeing me from a purgatory-like sentence of imbibing cup after needlessly oversized cup of diluted hot chocolate at any number of Le Pain Quoditiens peppered across Manhattan whilst I scour job sites like Indeed.com, JournalismJobs.com and Mediabistro, but you’ll be injecting my experience and enthusiasm into your team, and adding my voice, efforts, loyalty and gratitude to your cause.
Thanks for your time and your serious consideration.
