Chatted with a SVP with NBCUniversal, and she asked me what is now becoming a common questions. “Who do I know that got me this far with HR?”
I have mixed feelings about that. On the one hand, it tells me my networking skills are just awesome. On the other hand, it also tells me that my legendary UX skills didn’t get me the interview. That sort of sucks.
Anyway, they haven’t yet finished deciding what they want out of the new position. They seem to be thinking of it as a Creative Director position. If it’s a pure Creative Director position, then it won’t be a good fit for me. On the east coast, at least, those are primarily based on graphic artist skills as opposed to UX skills. And I expect they won’t be able to decide what they want before I’m scheduled to move to California.
