Furloughs, layoffs, downsizing, early retirement, contract buyouts…the marketing communications industry is struggling to survive the pandemic, along with media companies, and client companies in retail, events, hospitality, travel, commercial real estate, et al.
At the same time, there are lots of companies that are currently hiring. What follows is a list of ‘Jay oh Bees’ that our readers may want to pursue.

The best part is that you’ll be working in one of North America’s most creative cities — St. John’s is an off-kilter place, bursting with writers, storytellers, musicians, and artists of all stripes.

Time to Connect the Recruiting Dots
In this time of great need, the ad industry continues to rely on archaic systems to deliver new and better results.
From the user’s perspective, searching job boards is the new hampster wheel. From the employer’s POV, placing job listings on industry sites or job boards can be expensive with little promise of return on investment. From my perspective, we must find a way to inject humanity into this automated process and ensure human connection.
How do we get the hiring manager off the screen and into a deep listening session with the most qualified prospects? I ask because I want to know, and I want Adpulp.com to play a larger role in connecting today’s top talent with the best companies and opportunities in the business.
