About the OutOfWorkAdGuy

Welcome. You have arrived at the blog of the OutOfWorkAdGuy. A blog created to educate and entertain you with how to get what you want in life through creativity.

So why have I called myself the OutOfWorkAdGuy?

Well two reasons. For one, normally I would introduce myself by saying, ” Hello, my name is Jeremy Salzman and I work in advertising”. But for the sake of this blog, I would like to introduce myself as “The world’s unluckiest guy.” Hence having a name that sounds like a guy down on his luck. I say this because I have never had the good fortune of being at the right place at the right time, having lots of connections and help, or, a fortune of any kind whatsoever. Luck and resources can take you very far in this world. So instead of having resources, I’ve had to learn how to be resourceful. Meaning, I’ve had to be creative to get anything I ever wanted in life.

Secondly, the name OutOfWorkAdGuy comes from a campaign I created when I was out of work and hit really hard by the recession of 2008. After spending an exorbitant amount of time being unemployed, I came up with a creative campaign that grabbed a lot of attention, got me back to work and even landed me on TV. It has been my most favorite and successful idea to date. Because of all this, I decided that nothing was more fitting than to call this blog… OutOfWorkAdGuy.

Enjoy.
