Whether you’re an experienced marketing director who has worked in Washington DC for many years, or whether you are new to the Nation’s Capital area and are looking to find a communications job opening, you have no doubt experienced disappointment at one time or another.
One of the most challenging aspects of looking for a new marketing, communications or PR position—here in DC or anywhere for that matter—is dealing with rejection. You really wanted the job; it was not offered to you. It is almost always part of the process, but it never gets any easier, whether you are just starting out or have several years of experience.
You’re well under way in your search to find a new marketing and communications career for one of Washington, D.C.’s leading companies.
