From time to time I will post job openings here, as I hear from recruiters quite a bit. In the past, I have just shared the jobs within my personal network, but I forgot about you, Decent Marketers. So now, if the recruiter gives me the OK, I will share interesting openings with you. In order for me to continue to get asked about such opportunities, however, it is important that you only apply for such positions if you meet the qualifications listed. If you don't, please don't waste the recruiters time. Thanks.
