New Opportunity For Me

I wanted to share some really exciting news with everyone! After March, I’ll be taking on a new position working with AT&T’s talent attraction team. I’m super sad to be leaving Waggener, but this opportunity is a perfect fit for my vision of social media strategy in sourcing and recruiting. Plus… I’m going to get to work with my buddy Chris Hoyt – aka The Recruiter Guy – and I’m totally stoked about that! I will still be working remotely so I’ll be staying here in Cincinnati.

I am still planning to stay intimately connected to the world of PR, even though I won’t be working directly in it at this point. I have found over the last 18 months so many connections and similarities between PR and recruiting, and I know that gaining this knowledge is going to help me tremendously in my new role. So, for all of you who have taken the time to talk with me and share your knowledge with me, I am ever so grateful and appreciative.

I have loved my time with Waggener! It was truly a family to me, and I hope that all those whom I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know there will stay in touch. Changing companies to me doesn’t mean changing friends – it just means that we’ll have to try a little harder to stay connected 🙂 Thanks for all the good times!

Of course, I will continue to blog here and be a (loud and opinionated?) voice within my online communities. I am eager to see where this new chapter will lead. Thank you all for sharing in my excitement!

I am tasked with being an ambassador of AT&T’s brand and reputation through social media channels, and finding and attracting professionals to the company. I am working with a seriously talented team and am enjoying learning this new industry, especially the way mobile marketing plays into our efforts. […]
