Not All Frozen Yogurt Places In New York Are the Same

Off The Wall Frozen Yogurt

Thanks to LinkedIn, I recently became the social media / marketing manager for Off The Wall Frozen Yogurt. In the last month, I have learned a great deal about the frozen yogurt industry. If you live or work in New York City, you may have noticed all the frozen yogurt shops popping up. At first glance, you would think they are all the same. However, as you take a closer look, you will see and taste that the actual product and service runs the gamut.

Some frozen yogurt has more of a tart taste, others are more on the sweeter side. Some are self serve, others serve the customer. Some spaces are tiny, and others spectacularly spacious. The two main factors for any business are the product and the service. At Off The Wall, you get both at a very high caliber.

To be honest, I’ve never really been a huge fan of yogurt. I recently started eating it for its health benefits. I would pass by frozen yogurt places all the time, not really noticing them. Of course now, I notice them everywhere.

While interviewing for Off The Wall, I tried the product and instantly became a fan. Even if I did not get the job, I would have returned as a customer. The product was incredibly delicious and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Off the Wall is much more then incredible frozen yogurt. It’s an awesome experience.

Off The Wall Frozen Yogurt is a self-serve, New York-based frozen yogurt chain founded in 2010. The company presently owns and operates a store in Cedarhurst, NY and three (soon to be four) stores in the borough of Manhattan. Off the Wall’s mission is to curate a playful customer experience from start to finish.

If you’re a frozen yogurt fan, and even if you’re not, you have to give Off The Wall a try. You’ll truly enjoy the frozen yogurt and the experience.

If you have already given it a try, let me know what you think. I’d love to hear from you.

Social Networking for a Job

According to About.com, at least 60 percent – some report even higher statistics – of all jobs are found by networking. In a slow job market, finding employment via the traditional manner could be quite ineffective. I know firsthand. I have been looking for a mid-career communication position for quite a long time. Since January of this year I have been searching for an entry-level paralegal position. However both searches thus far have come up empty.

So, I have decided to finally use my social network to get the word out. If you know of any possible employment positions in my chosen fields or know people in the communication or legal industries, please pass along any leads. I can be found on LinkedIn or you can just forward the link to my professional blog, which also serves as my résumé online, to any potential employers.

I will continue to do my part and am confident the right job will come up eventually, but if you can help spread the word I would really appreciate the valued assistance. Thanks in advance for your effort.

Jump-Starting the Job Search in 2010

I’m jump-starting my job search for 2010. Through a friend I met a human resources consultant who helped revamp my cover letter and résumé. I’m very satisfied with the final product. I’ve also updated my LinkedIn profile and continue to make good contacts. Employment experts suggest job seekers should work their social networks for possible leads, so if I’m one of your LinkedIn connections a recommendation would be greatly appreciated. I also began using Talent Zoo, an online site for advertising and marketing jobs, and JournalismJobs.com. Writing/reporting and communication/public relations positions are of most interest, however I’m also considering customer service-related opportunities. If you come across a position that may be a good fit for me, thanks in advance for passing along the good word.
