Ross is using his skills to find a job

s it’s often said that if you can sell yourself you can sell anything, so we were delighted to see our chum Ross Brown taking up the challenge by - using the tools of his trade to find a new job.
For 10 years, Ross has been self-employed, working with clients and agencies to provide them both with expertise in digital marketing. From initial strategy and planning through to production and delivery, Ross’s work encompasses all aspects of digital marketing - from web sites to email campaigns, search engine optimisation to audio & video production.
Now he’s utilising this expertise to promote himself, using both traditional and digital marketing techniques, to find a new job.
And he’s offering a reward of £250 to whoever can help him find his dream role.
"I’m missing working with a team on a regular basis and the buzz you get in an office environment, he says. "For me, it’s the role that’s important, not the title on the business card. I want a job where I can make a real impression, perhaps helping a business to grow whilst delivering high-quality work."
As a former journalist and PR manager, Ross is well-placed to take advantage of the boom in social media, planning and delivering campaigns using marketing channels such as Twitter, Facebook and blogs to allow a company to communicate directly with its customers.
But he’s using this expertise to his own advantage for the first time.
Commenting on his campaign, Ross says: "Since the millennium, I’ve worked with clients and agencies large & small, combining my expertise in marketing, technology and business to deliver cost-effective and high-quality digital solutions.
I’ve enjoyed the time I’ve spent in self-employment but the time is right for me both professionally and personally to return to full-time employment - and using the marketing tools I specialise in seems like the best way to find the perfect job."
He adds: "Most people in my line of work either deal with clients, or deal with programming and development. Because of my experience in self-employment, not only can I speak to clients in a language they understand - explaining the business benefits of a digital strategy - but I can also speak to the development team and ensure that the finished product is both technically-proficient and meets the client’s requirements.”
Ross is using his blog at to record the progress of what he’s calling "Operation Job", using his social media marketing skills to promote himself through his business and personal networks.
