I’ve just had to let 4 employees go. We’ve lost four clients in 2 weeks thanks to the economy. While we may replace that business fast and get everyone back on board, I’m listing their qualifications here. If you know a Puget Sound-area position for them, or of contract work they can do, please contact me via e-mail (ian AT portent DOT com) or on Twitter.
Kazue Otsuki is a graphic designer with a huge amount of experience in e-mail marketing, motion graphics and web site design. She’s excellent with Photoshop, Fireworks, HTML, XHTML and generally creating designs that make people take action.
Miles Grover is a CSS and XHTML 2 champion who can solve any XHTML problem imaginable. He also knows a lot about creating SEO-friendly code.
Mack Reider-Johnson is a Google Adwords and Yahoo certified PPC specialist. He’s an excellent ad writer and builder of productive campaigns. He also knows Google Analytics inside-out.
Again, if you know of available positions for these folks, please contact me via e-mail (ian AT portent DOT com) or on Twitter.
I am trying to keep my own emotion out of this. These people are my colleagues and friends. My company, I should assure everyone, is still healthy and can do great work. But right now my main concern is trying to get these folks placed.
