We’re excited to introduce you to Danny Rubin, author, communications expert, and the man behind our workshop on February 24 at Central Library in Virginia Beach: 5 Game-Changing Emails that Will Land Clients. We recently sat down with Danny to talk about his work and ask him a few questions about what he has planned for his workshop. There are still a few spots left, so register today!
Where: Central Library, 4100 Virginia Beach Boulevard, Virginia Beach, VA, 23452
When: Wednesday, February 24, 2016, 6-8 p.m.
AIGA HR: How long have you been in the communications field and how did you get your start?
Danny Rubin: I have worked in the communications field for 10 years (since I graduated from college). I began as a TV reporter at WTKR NewsChannel 3 as a general assignment reporter. I then moved to Washington, DC and worked for a media research and strategy firm called Frank Magid Associates. In that role, I consulted with clients like NBC, MSNBC, Gannett (which owns USA TODAY) and UnitedHealthcare. In 2013, I moved back to Virginia Beach and am now vice president of Rubin Communications Group, a full-service PR and marketing firm. My efforts with my blog and book are a “side hustle,” and I work on them as the day allows.
AIGA HR: What does your day-to-day workflow look like and how would you describe it to others?
Danny: I spend the majority of my day working with clients and overseeing business development at Rubin Communications Group. As I have time in the day (or in the mornings/evenings), I plug away on marketing my book, Wait, How Do I Write This Email?, a collection of 100+ templates for networking, the job search and LinkedIn. I make to-do lists constantly and keep myself in check on what I need to accomplish.
AIGA HR: What do you hope people will take away from your presentation and workshop?
Danny: Strong writing skills can have a major impact on how well we network, apply for jobs and present ourselves in a professional manner. Most people are average writers; those who hone the craft will stand out from the competition.
AIGA HR: How can we follow your work and get in touch with you?
Danny: My book is available now on Amazon (paperback and Kindle). You can also follow my blog, News To Live By, in which I highlight the career advice “hidden” in the latest headlines. I’m also on Twitter at @DannyHRubin.
