Overheard in the Unemployment Line

UnemploymentLine.jpg

We hear that there have been 30 layoffs at OMD in the past two weeks. I’m losing count on who is laying folks off. That’s pretty surprising since I recently heard that OMD was doing pretty well. Maybe they’re just making room? OMD did just recently post these available positions:

*Associate Media Director–Digital (LA)
*Business Intelligence DBA & Data Modeler (NY)
*Business Inteligence Developer/Analyst (NY)
*Media Supervisor – Digital (SF)
*Client Budget Project Manager (NY, SF)
*Traffic/Project Manager (NY)
*Group Director (Hispanic Expertise) (NY)
*Media Buyer / Negotiator (LA)
*Media Reconciliation Specialist (NY)
*Assistant Media Planner/Strategist (NY)
*Assistant Media Planner (LA)

So, good luck if you’re looking for a new gig. I hear lots of people are. It’s getting pretty sad to have to keep talking about layoffs. I’m gonna start posting who is hiring. Matt told you about Grey’s available position. Who else is hiring?
