AD NAUSEAM: a copywriter's life

April hollers bring May dollars

Posted in Uncategorized by CopyBlogger on the May 22nd, 2012

A GLOOMY APRIL held little promise of gainful employment, but I’m pleased to report that I am once again earning money. Staff departures at Brookstone and a little networking with my old supervisor there resulted in some temporary work. Since May 1, I have been putting in about 30 hours a week on various copy projects.

And, true to the “When it rains, it pours” law of the universe … I’ve also filled the time with a little proofreading for School Specialty, a local division of Delta Education. They market educational materials and curricula to schools all over the country.

A full-time job would be great, but the cash flow is certainly welcome. No one needs me to detail just how bad the job market is these days. Hopefully this gig will last a while and I can keep the job search going. More anon.
