SEO Looking for Work in Portland

Fear not, dear readers, ’tis not I in need of employment.

In fact, directly and indirectly because of you (thanks to the links, Twitter exposure, and word-of-mouth so many of you have given me), the last couple of months have brought a flood of new business inquiries, causing me to question the “deep recession” doom-and-gloom I hear on cable news 24/7.

But a colleague on the SEMpdx Board, Scott Orth, has felt the pain of this economic downturn–earlier this week he was laid off by his employer.  I’m sure that Scott will do just fine on his own, if he decides to go that route, but he hints that he is looking for a job, should one arise, in his recent tongue-in-cheek series on the SEMpdx blog: “Search Expert Forced to Live Under Bridge.”  It makes for good, light, weekend reading if you’re up for it.

And if you’re looking for an SEO with 9 years’ experience (you don’t see that every day!) — give Scott a shout.
