Other Career Experience:
Experience Working at Companies whom are at the Peak of Professionalism & World Renowned Experts:
Overview: Whitney worked as an external internet marketing consultant for SEO Workers (@SEOWorkers), one of the most influential and highly recommend SEO consultant companies and usability experts. If you have ever John S. Bristios, CEO of SEO Workers, then most likely you know that he is a very friendly and caring person. He has always prided himself upon a few simple life rules to follow, like helping another is to help oneself.
Company Website: http://www.seoworkers.com/
Started around: January 2011
Ended around: March, 2012
Job Title: Content Marketing and Social Media Project Manager
» Whitney was responsible for all content marketing campaigns of all SEO Worker clients, which in many cases meant publishing over 30+ articles per client each month, then having each post bookmarked and shared via social media across 7 – 10 different web 2.0 platforms. During Whitney’s stay at the company, he worked on a good number of the worlds leading websites, within the specific industry the company was in.
What Did I Get from this Job: This experience made Whitney’s confidence, professionalism, expertise, and entire change in marketing methodology, by becoming much more mature, taking time to do work right and not sloppy, learning from mistakes, learning from the absolute highest level of search engine web architect, and ultimately taking off all previous methodologies Whitney used to have, about doing grey hat and black hat style marketing.
Overview: In January of 2015, Whitney became a team member and project manager at Marketer’s BrainTrust, featuring Dan Thies and Leslie Rohde, two of the top experts in which Whitney has been following since 2007, before becoming a full time entrepreneur & marketer. Around the middle of April, 2015 Whitney resigned from the company, as he decided that this type of job simply isn’t the right fit for him, at this time. Whitney is too much of a true entrepreneur and wild spirit, to become an hourly wage type worker who makes other people money. What drives Whitney the most, is seeing his hard work and determination payoff in financial ways (yes, of course, but that’s not that important) & other more rewarding ways. There was no bad blood or fallout between the company and Whitney, today, he continues to maintain a healthy relationship with Leslie and Dan.

Started around: January 1, 2015
Ended around: April 19, 2015
Job Title: Blogging Re-Design Project Lead and Content Publication Project Manager
Whitney’s job at the company entailed managing and coordinating over 5+ blogging and website re-design / upgrade projects at any given time, to get the job done Whitney had to assign tasks and work directly with 8-10 different individuals to get the job done, each with their own specialized knowledge.
What Did I Get from this Job: Overall, it was a great experience, he learned a lot, it made him a much better marketer and project manager, and if all other options we’re exhausted, he would most definitely apply for a similar position with Marketer’s BrainTrust again.
