How Cindy used Pinterest to land her dream job

May 29, 2012

I write posts here for one simple reason: to get me hired. Imagine my surprise when I found out one of my posts helps someone else find a job.

Cindy Wincek LakeCindy Wincek was kind enough to share her insights into Pinterest, which I put into a post in January.

She emailed me last week with exciting news …

“I just wanted to thank you so much for the blog post you wrote about me and my Pinterest board, Don’t Hate the Players. Because of it, I actually landed my dream job. I am now the MLS account manager at 365 Inc.

“We run WorldSoccerShop.com and MLSGear.com, to mention a few sites. The CEO of the company was informed about me by someone who read your blog post. And the rest is history.

“Basically, I am in charge of managing MLSGear.com, the official online store for the MLS.  I’ll get to travel to Manhattan to meet at MLS headquarters a few times a year and also go to various games. They are actually sending me to the MLS All-Stars vs. Chelsea FC (English Premiere League team and 2012 Champion’s League winner) in July in Chester, Pa.

“I am surrounded by soccer 24/7/365 now!”

That is awesome. Cindy is awesome! You the reader are awesome!

Cindy’s passion for soccer showed through on her popular Pinterest players board. Now she works for a Birmingham-based sports merchandise company. How is that not awesome?

Don’t ever stop blogging about the things that drive you forward. You never know when you’ll reach the right people with your passion.
