65,000 people in the advertising industry have lost their jobs, according to Ad Age. That's a lot of talent out there. A lot of people making daily calls to agencies. A lot of books floating around. But Erik Proulx, just one of those 65,000, is trying to help turn this whole thing around.
Erik runs Please Feed the Animals, a blog for those laid off by the ad industry. More importantly, PFTA is recently a matchmaking site where agencies can find talent and vice versa. It's one more place that any freelancer seeking full-time employment can post their website and check back for agency job openings, of which there will be a deluge any day now.
