In which Jeremy’s time with @WaggenerEdstrom comes to an end, and he asks for help.

So, here’s some news.

As of the beginning of January, I will be leaving my position as Digital Strategy Specialist at Waggener Edstrom‘s Studio D.

This decision comes at the end of some intense reflection about what I truly value and what I want to be a part of creating.  My focus has always been to see things from the community side, rather than the corporate ROI side, and this is something that I’d like to focus more on professionally.

I do truly believe that when it comes to business storytelling, social innovation awareness and digital strategies for business, there are few better than the team at Waggener, and I wholeheartedly recommend their services if you or your organization find yourself in need of such things.

In the meantime, I do not have another gig lined up, so here’s where I humbly call upon the power of the interwebs and my friends who read my blog.

If you know of a position or a company that you think might be a good fit for me, if you’d like to chat about opportunities, if there’s something you’d like my input on, if I can help in any way, please let me know. My email is jeremy at this domain.  My resume is easily viewed or downloaded as a Word document, and I have a profile at LinkedIn.

For some context, here’s my Career Objective from said document.

I am passionate about leveling the playing field between companies and fans by facilitating conversations around personal experiences that encourage real connection.  I lead story-based projects, fueled by this collaboration, that build, feed and grow communities

I’m thinking seriously about industries such as Video Games, where the people working on the product exist within their target audience.   In other words, the makers geek out on the same things as the consumers.  That makes community building (the thing I care about) so much simpler and more fun.

I am not at all adverse to leaving the NYC area, especially if it involves the west cost.

I am not interested in a job that is mostly social media strategy, but for the right company, I could be swayed.  I would really like to work at a company doing a variety of work, rather than at an agency for a variety of clients.  But again, given the right environment and culture, I could be swayed.

Oh, also… If you think you’d like my job (Digital Strategist with a focus on new business and located in the NYC office), I will have a job description available shortly, so feel free to contact me on Twitter.

So, I call upon you, my dear friends, community members, associates.  Let’s demonstrate the power of connection.

Thanks for your time.

Hi Jeremy,

I’m always a big supporter of anyone who is seeking to follow their passion. Please let me know if there is ANYTHING at all I can do to help with your job search.

For some strange reason, I don’t think we’re LinkedIn. I’m going to send you an invite now… Let see if there’s anyone in my network that might be of value to you.

Wishing you wonderful adventures in the year to come.
