After twelve years working at the boutique firm The Creative Network
, the downturn in the economy forced them to let me go. Studying abroad currently, I am quite vulnerable to any changes in my financial situation and this development hit me hard. I have found new employment at a global investment firm that suits my hours and my studies - the environment is great and the people are very nice. I can sincerely say that I enjoy the work and it's perfect for my situation - but I can now count myself in the ranks of the "underemployed". I have a job - and for that I am happy and thankful.
Given as how this is a recruiting blog, I will no longer be making updates until (and if ever) I get back into recruiting. When/if my situation changes, I'll be sure to get on here and let everybody know. I'm sure you'll be waiting with baited breath. ;)
Good luck all, may things turn around in the economy sooner than predicted...
