A Drought-Proof Media Job

NMS.jpg
Smiles everyone, smiles.

It’s not traditional journalism. But it is a gig that promises not to screw you over with lame buyouts and layoffs.

We hear Arlington, Va.-based New Media Strategies, a social media marketing company, is a good place to be. So good that about 35 of its employees received $100k checks with a blowout rooftop party at the W Saturday. In the past year they’ve hired an additional 40 people, showing the job drought hasn’t affected them much.

The photograph: Who’s the smiling man? It’s NMS CEO and Founder Pete Snyder. Fortune Small Business named him one of the best bosses in America. Washingtonian and Washington Business Journal have named NMS among the best places to work.
