Brief Bio:

In April 2010, while Katie DeVito was seeking employment, she was selected by PARADE Magazine as one of five individuals from across the United States to be chronicled in their job search. While one of the main reasons PARADE said they selected her was because of her founding NJ Unemployed, a networking group dedicated to bringing the unemployed community together by holding educational seminars, social events and more, but also because of the way she was using social media to secure employment. This coverage led to an appearance on CBS’s “The Early Show.”

 

Katie has been using social media since 2004 where she branded herself and her NJ Unemployed group, which led to her forming her own social media and public relations company, Katie DeVito, LLC in June 2010. She appeared on News 12 New Jersey’s “Kane in Your Corner” discussing unemployment, social media and starting your own business. Katie continues to speak to various groups on social media, branding, unemployment, as well as her story of passion and purpose.
