Project New York

My main focus right now is to find a job and move to New York.

Being the list maker that I am I have a list to help keep me focused.

I. Improve Resume & Cover Letter

II. Create an On-Line Portfolio

III. Sign Up With Every Online Job Board I Can Find

IV. Find And Work Contacts From Linkedin

V. Save Money & Pay Off Credit Card Debt.

Wish me luck.

New Goal - Project New York

About 5 months ago I got a new job, I got the job so easily that for a long time I was suspicious and waiting for the other shoe to drop.

Well, it dropped.

They changed my position to an entry level position and within a year I need to be willing to advance to a managerial position or I will have to quit. On paper it seams like a great opportunity but I do not want to be a retail manager, I want to advance my career in visual merchandising.

I have decided to start looking for a new job and I am focusing my search to New York. It seems like all of the best opportunities are in New York, not just for visual merchandising but in other areas that I am interested in (buying, styling, etc.).

So, now the question is ........

How do I make this happen?
