  9. Jamie Favreau 21764 Cyman Warren, MI 48091 Jamie_Favreau@yahoo.com April 24, 2009 I can help you retain your lost RedWingsWorld members by doing a few simple tips and making RedWingsWorld profitable again! Dear Mr. Roose, My name is Jamie Favreau and I would like to be your next New Media Coordinator. I have demonstrated my abilities working with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I have learned of the position through Shannon Paul and her blog and have spoke with her on several occasions. I am a passionate Red Wings fan who has been a member of Red Wings World since 2002 and has seen the decline first hand of the memberships and I can tell you the assets you have with this website and why it should be maintained. I have saved The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society thousands of dollars by obtaining copyrighted photos from GM for free. Usually you are charged for the use of the copyright and the archivist involved. They have made money through my use of MissionFish by adding it to their fundraising efforts with me pushing for them to be involved in it. Created a blog which demonstrates my value and a presentation on how to add a strategy to an already existing project. Visit my blog to see what I have done http://jamiefavreau.wordpress.com I have almost 2000 followers on Twitter about half of them are hockey fans and some of them are Red Wings fans. I am a brand ambassador of your team and have been almost all of my life These are a few things I have done to add value to the work place. I look forward to speaking with you about how I can help you return Redwingsworld.com back to the form it was in 2002. Thank you for your time and consideration and I look forward to contacting you in a few days. Sincerely, SIGN IN BLUE INK Jamie Favreau P.S. Here is what a contact of mine is saying about my work. “Jamie often positions herself in the role of quot;social media/PR student,quot; but she underestimates herself -- I find myself learning more from her than she'll probably ever realize. Her dedication to the field, thirst for knowledge, and overall perseverance speak far beyond her work ethic -- these things apply to Jamie in every respect, even her love for hockey. It's rare that you meet someone that truly IS passionate about everything they do, but Jamie is definitely one of those people.”
  10. www.motorcityconnect.com  Ning groups  Example http://prsatech.ning.com/ http://www.indeed.com  www.natsjobs.com  You need to be active in your affiliations  Alumni groups are helpful  Go to seminars, activities and anything and everything you can to get your name out.

Remember in the end it isn’t about YOU.  You are trying to solve there problem and  often you can find HIDDEN jobs by listening Follow recruiters and influencers on  Twitter, go to networking meetings and make Linked In your rolodex, and be mindful of your network on Facebook. People change their status messages all the  time and they constantly need answers to problem. Be the problem solver! 
