Anyone who has ever showed up at a hotel and thought “this looks nothing like the photos on their website,” knows that the travel industry needs a serious consumer watchdog. Guess what? It exists and is growing in leaps and bounds. To take the brand to the next level, they now need a four-star product manager to be in overall control of the user experience.
Our client, a truly prestigious med school, is sucking in its breath, poised in advance of a thoroughgoing redesign and relaunch of its website, and it’s hiring an editorial team to see to it that the final product is every bit as sterling and exceptional as the institution itself. This particular gig is for a content/information-architecture strategist whose focus will be the site’s basic structure and organizing principles. If that’s your line, and if you do it at the top of the game, we’d love to hear from you. This organization is a lovely place to work – lots of opportunity and a workplace culture that is exceedingly supportive and collegial.

Basically your job will be to undo the handiwork of a not-so-great tech-writing effort, rendering reams of cumbersome prose into immediate, cogent, useable stuff. Now, from one writer to another, I ask you without the slightest blush of shame: Doesn’t that sound like fun?

When is it ok to quit? How do we know when it’s better to cut our losses and move on? What about “sunk costs” that cause us to dig ourselves into an even deeper hole?
