12-08-20: Marketing Careers: Orbit Media's Report & Medical Writing Jobs
Lynn Hazan was quoted in Andy Crestodina’s latest update on marketing salaries and occupations in 2020. Marketing positions have been eliminated from both the agency and corporate sides because of the pandemic. 

Although marketing may seem to be on the decline, jobs in many verticals are not. Marketing jobs in healthcare and technology are increasing. Candidates with more technical skill sets are very much in demand. It is anticipated that healthcare and technology will continue to grow. We have been successful during this period. We just placed a "Marketing SVP" at an IT consulting firm.

"Lynn's personal branding workshop was great. I really enjoyed it and learned several new ways of distilling my experience. I was able to put some of it into practice the next day during a phone interview - I had a case story at the ready. I also enjoyed "Calling Cards" and have shared the exercise with two friends. I always find Lynn's input and advice to be so helpful."
