I'M DAN CONWAY AND I AM THE EXTREME JOB HUNTER.
I'm Dan Conway, and I am 'The Extreme Job Hunter'. I was made redundant from my job as a 'Digital Marketing Manager' in July 2015. I was working for an international supplement company. I enjoyed my time there, and I had some great success. I increased total online revenue by 20%, increased email-marketing revenue by 200%, and grew social media followers to 20,000. Now I am looking for a new job opportunity. Ideally I'd love to stay within marketing or social media, but I am willing to take on any new tasks that a different role would present.
I am currently based in Newcastle upon Tyne. My first choice of location would be to stay in The North East as my children are at school here. However, I am open to all good work opportunities regardless of location.
People always ask this question and are confused at the fact that the figures I have behind me are good, yet I was made redundant. So this is basically what happened: We had new management come in and begin restructuring and cost cutting, and I happened to be one of the casualties. It came as a suprise, but it's just one of those things that happens. So no I'm not an axe murderer, I'm not a difficult employee, and I'm genuinely a real people person that's easy to get on with.
The rumours are true. Some of you may, or may not know, but 'The Extreme Job Hunter' was born when I was looking for a job back in 2013. the campaign was a great success, featuring on national radio stations, national newspapers, and also national TV. Ultimately it landed me a great job in marketing too. Some stunts back then included a video resume starring my daughter who was 2 years old at the time, selling myself on eBay, running an iPad competition for the person who got me a job, and even participating in the 'World Gravy Wrestling Championship'. My website had over 30,000 hits and my YouTube channel had 20,000 views.
I'm 30. I've been married for 6 years to an awesome wife named Natalie, and I have 3 incredible kids. Lucy (4), Jack (3), Eleanor (9 months). I consider myself a very fortunate man.
