About that one ProZ.com team member...

Some of you may or may not have received an email recently, related to the year-end campaign discounts on membership, training, and software, with a ProZ.com team image that had one extra, rather canine-looking team member added to it. And some of you caught it, and asked about it. The truth is, there is an odd number of people on the team at the moment, so we weren't sure how to best add a team pic with just two rows and have it look neat. So: meet Max.
Max is currently our main non-human companion at the La Plata office. He doesn't do much work, but I guess you could say he's good for moral support.
For the most part he's a quiet, calm companion, but he's quickly battle-ready when co-workers make a sudden movement or exclamation. Also, having been raised with a cat, he doesn't completely understand why he can't climb walls and trees, so when the office's neighborhood cats walk by on the walls, it's us who need to provide moral support to him.

Max kept me company during the International Translation Day virtual conference this year. He says he learned "a lot" (pronounced rrr-roff).
By the way, if you've been with ProZ.com for a while, you probably noticed several new faces in that team pic, not just the dog. We'll be presenting them soon too. But I don't want to take any attention away from Max here, he hates that.
Anyone else out there with non-human office companions? Would you be willing to share? Post your pics here if you have them!


Give your online profile the same love you would give a cherished pet. Using your profile as your online presentation/portfolio of what you have to offer and what makes you special is the way to make sure potential clients can properly evaluate whether they want to contact you for that next job. ProZ.com membership makes sure they can find your profile in the first place. Give your profile the attention it deserves and you'll get attention in return.


If you are not yet a ProZ.com member, you can start now, with special discounts on membership and training until December 15th. Find out more »
