And the Job Hunt Begins

As most of you are aware, I have proudly worked for Rogers Media in their Digital Client Solutions Team for the last 3 years.  Unfortunately, and to my greatest shock – last Tuesday I was laid off as part of their restructuring process.  (You can see the story here: Rogers Communications lays off 94 staff in media operations.)  Myself and 1 additional team member also was let go after 8 years with the company and 5 years on my team.

I first and foremost want to say that working at Rogers in my role as a Digital Engagement Manager was really and truly my dream job.  It really was everything that anyone that works in communications could dream of and ask for -not to mention that I worked on one of the most prestigious teams.  I’m not shy to say – as I did at many of our morning department teams – it was the team that everyone within the organization was trying to be part of.

I considered my team members to be like family.  My Director was outstanding as was my reporting manager – and I always think that these situations are the most difficult  – because when you work with great people and great mentors, it is so sad to not be able to see them and interact with them everyday.  As I said to them – I hope this is only just a temporary pause until we have an opportunity to work or collaborate together one day.

I shall not include names because I do respect people’s privacy and anonimity 🙂  But to all the sales reps, GMs, editors and publishers, producers, project managers, creative and also of course to my entire team – thank you all so much for the time I had to learn and grow and be part of the wonderful things that Rogers Media does 🙂
