Last week at CloudBeat as I was decompressing for a session, a well dressed gentleman approached me for a chat. Nimish Jalan proceeded to discuss with me the specific topics of the panel I’d just moderated, some themes he’d seen emerging at the show, and general trends in the industry.

I was impressed, here’s a guy who knows his stuff I figured. Well it turns out he does, he holds an MBA but, more importantly, he’s self taught in digital media and digital marketing. It also turns out that Nimish is unemployed.

Unlike a number of people though, Nimish decided to use his unemployment to great effect and has embarked upon an experiment in digital marketing – this time marketing himself. Nimish created the video below, as well as a blog site where he’s looking to tell his story.

Now I know this isn’t a completely novel initiative, but it’s still well done. Something tells me that Nimish won’t be unemployed for long.
