Who am I?
My name is Linda (Odineca) Calabria and I am a marketing professional. I began this blog as an unemployed MBA graduate. I wanted to share my experience with unemployment with others while also sharing the tools I was using to find permanent employment. 16 months later I was happy to be part of the employed once again. I have chosen to continue writing this blog as a way to continue sharing my knowledge and anecdotes about every day work life, social media, and of course finding employment. I hope you enjoy my advice and I look forward to your comments!

A little about my background – don’t forget to check out my general capabilities slide deck on slidshare!:
Currently, I am once again unemployed. It is a shame, but unfortunately it happens to the best of us. I have previously worked as a:
– Marketing Manager at an electro analytical instrumentation company named Hanna Instruments
– MarComm leader in the storage & workspace business unit of Stanley Black & Decker
– Product marketing specialist at Samsonite
– International marketing coordinator at LoJack
Through these positions I acquired management, product marketing and development, and international marketing communications experience, as well as learned how to run all aspects of brand marketing while optimizing the exposure, reach, and effectiveness of the various digital and traditional marketing initiatives through a variety of communications methods, both internally and externally.
Here’s to hoping that next door opens for you soon! Thank you for reading!
P.S. I look forward to your success stories and if you’re interested in my more personal background check out my “About Me” blog post.
