IxDA, That subject line is the phrase I want to say to someone like me in a few years. I received my master's in Information Science this May and have been tirelessly seeking work in NYC since--i've had one interview. If you are able to utter this phrase, tell me, what did you do? Who respects 2 years of education experience over 2 years of work experience? I think I have a good pitch, and I realize I need to give it time - especially here in the city - and believe me I'm not picky I use ALL the job lists. Here's who I've applied to: Google, Fantasy Interactive, Rokkan, Method, Thumbplay, Razorfish, Quirky, AOL, Lab49, NYT, NYU, EnergyHub, Sachs Insight, Harvest, DraftFCB, B&N, Etsy, Fandango, Knewton, Schoolnet, Innovation Interactive, Mandy.com, and host of anonymous freelance positions.
Perhaps there is something wrong with this list - maybe my site is no good - or maybe I'm just not looking in the right place. Please, if you have tips or suggestions or maybe you even have a job for me, get in touch.
