One good thing about a company that just goes completely belly up with no transition plans in place? Clients are left spinning their wheels and scrambling for alternatives to finish projects that are in progress. A group of us have made contact with a handful of former clients to see if they'd be interested in retaining us to finish up projects that were in progress when the company folded. We've had some positive response so far so we'll see where that goes. In other job news:
- A former client in Oklahoma City that I did a tremendous amount of work for JUMPED at my offer to finish a few things up for them. It's not much work...a couple of days...but it's better than nothing, right?
- I sent my resume and portfolio out to four places last Friday. Two have already made contact and said they like my work and will be in touch. Three of the four are local so that's a good thing. LOW paying jobs, though...I'm sure.
- I have a sorority sister in Denver who is a designer like me. She said her firm is entertaining the possibility of adding a graphics and layout person. She's going to check on it and lobby for me if it's a reality.
I'm not wild about the idea of moving (or travelling for that matter) to work but you have to do what you have to do to pay the bills. I appreciate everyones good wishes, thoughts and concern for me as I dropped off the face of the earth. I'm in survival mode now...and I'm back in the saddle. When I get this focused on something I tend to have blinders on so apologies in advance for neglect or lack of updates.
I'll let everyone know what happens...
