The Easiest and Fastest Way to Promote Yourself – and It's Free

The jobs are out there.

Over $219 BILLION was spent on direct marketing in 2003. And $48.6 billion of that was spent on direct mail alone.

The direct-marketing industry is booming … and it needs you to write and design for it.

With the improving economy, these numbers are soaring – along with your opportunities for getting a job.

And now, getting a job in direct marketing just got easier … MUCH EASIER.

You're familiar with the job search board Monster.com. Well, AWAI has taken that concept and morphed it into an online job board exclusively for AWAI students.

This valuable resource is called DirectResponseJobs.com. And it's now part of your complete AWAI training.

The Board has two sides to it. One is for DM businesses to post jobs for writers and designers. We’re promoting it as the place for marketers to find their next superstar … and put a serious dent in the deep pile of back-logged projects they have on their desks.

The other side of the Board is for you – AWAI-trained copywriters and graphic designers – to hook up with an array of marketers from all sectors of the Direct Response world.

Here's how it works for you:

If you're currently enrolled in AWAI's Accelerated or Masters Copywriting Programs or our Graphic Design Success Program, you will receive an e-mail from info@directresponsejobs.com.com tomorrow with your private log-in and password. (If you haven’t received it by Wednesday morning or are not part of these programs but would like access to the Job Board, please contact directresponsejobs@awaionline.com)

Next, go to www.directresponsejobs.com and sign on.

From there, search for jobs that suit your needs. All the details will be there … and so will all the information you need to make your first contact. (If you’re a Master’s Student, you can take it a step further and post your resume in a special “Master’s Students” section so marketers can contact you directly.)

Check back often. New jobs will be posted daily.

We're excited about what this new tool can mean for your career. Please keep us posted on your successes.
