Job Seekers' 60-Second Pitches

In what is the first of what I hope will be a weekly feature, I present elevator pitches from our members who are searching for jobs...

Mark Feldman
I am a marketing professional with over 20 years of experience in building brands and building businesses. My career has been very diverse having worked in different verticals including Internet, media and entertainment, real estate, an association and the agency business. My areas of expertise include branding, lead generation, customer conversion and integrated marketing and communications. I have particular strength in customer engagement. I am happy to connect and help people and organizations in any way that I can. I am currently doing marketing and communications consulting and looking for my next senior-level full-time career position. Contact Mark at MJFeld (at) aol (dot) com.

George Flett
With a unique blend of marketing communications experience in consumer branded companies such as Pillsbury, Sara Lee and Quaker Oats and recently in Higher Education (Boston University, Worcester Polytechnic Institute) as a consultant and senior administrator, I am a marketing generalist with experience in brand and marketing strategy, media relations, marketing research, print and web development, e-marketing and all forms of advertising. I've also spent several years with a government contractor that partners with federal and state agencies -- such as the USPS and Depts. of Transportation, Education and Health and Human Services -- creating marketing programs that take important information for citizens, make it more user friendly, and distribute it more efficiently.

My job goals are primarily to find a full time position in the non-profit or government arenas in the DC area that will take advantage of my background. Along the way, I would be pleased to find contract, temporary or part time work where I can make a solid contribution. My email address: gsflett (at) yahoo (dot) com.

Sarah Howell

I'm a senior communications executive with extensive international corporate experience directing media affairs for a Fortune 50 corporation. My career path is highlighted by ever- increasing responsibilities for public affairs and U.S.. press office teams where I created and implemented media strategies resulting in hundreds of pieces of favorable and well-balanced coverage in the most influential international media outlets. Over my tenure, I developed ‘trusted counsel’ relationships with C-level executives for interview preparation and guidance leading to optimal message development and delivery. My crisis communications skills have resulted in vital and effective media and reputation management at local, national, and international levels.

I'm looking for a position in a large firm that has a strong position on sustainability issues. I'm happy to send my resume and references. Send requests to sarahhowell100 (at) yahoo (dot) com.
