Ms. Heming, who is also the author of the job-hunting book Work It! How to Get Ahead, Save Your Ass, and Land A Job in Any Economy, has worked at the intersection of digital, data and outsourcing since 1992, first on Wall Street and then in the media industry. Recognizing the burning need for top tech talent across start-ups and Fortune 500 companies, she founded The Hired Guns in 2000 to harness the power and potential of the new movers and shakers of digital. Ms. Eule has been part of the education department of Mediaistro since 2005, working her way up the trenches from coordinator to executive director. Her goal is to create a roster of courses that will help everyone climb the ladder to the job they want. Both women will share tips/their thoughts on how freelancers can best market themselves in the current marketplace. If this is a topic of interest to you, be sure to come armed with a few questions for our speakers. As always, the NYFWA will cover members’ first two drinks at this event.
