Hopeful about hiring
Amy Golden
Age: 33
Location: Omaha, Neb.

I have been out of work for six months, but I have been getting interviews, just not an offer. I am looking for a marketing position, which is tough because that is always the first area they cut and the last place to get hired back. I am fortunate that I have great work experience so I am not pigeonholed into one area of marketing. I have creative, analytical and project management experience. I would love to get a job at an ad agency or a tech firm. That would be ideal. But I also know it is a tough market so I will be happy to have a home. I am pretty flexible so there are lots of positions that I would be happy with. I have a degree in journalism and an MBA so I have gotten the overqualified line, but I am not letting that get me down.

I have had several great interviews lately so I have my fingers crossed that something is going to come through soon! I have another interview on Friday. I am feeling very excited and hopeful! I know things are going to turn around soon!
