October 1st, 2008

Another day, another no. I received an email this AM from NPR (National Public Radio), and sadly the position I applied for, I was turned down for. They didn't even bring me in for an interview! If they had brought me in for an interview I'm sure I could have won them over and had a new job. I feel just looking at some one's resume should not be what does them justice, you definitely meet with them, and get a feel for who they are. It gets very frustrating for me, I apply and get No's. At least their no was polite, much like VOA (Voice of America). But a lot of places don't inform me of the no, they just let me sit and wonder. I have two other applications out there circulating and when I get a free moment here at work I will most definitely search some more... Right now I have two other applications out. One at CBS Radio, and one at Radio-One, so all hope is not lost. It's just reduced by one.

In other news, I received the most wonderful award from The Wandering Writer and Her Dog for my blog. I just want to say thank you and I hope I have 7 people to give this to... This award really helped put a smile on my face, and today I needed it.

The recipients are as follows:

The Sandy Dog Bakery

The Soon-To-Be-More-Famous Artist Named Nemo


Shoes From Around the Globe

Dog Parks

Howlin' Hounds

I actualy do not have 7 people to give this too, but the rules are that you have to give it to 7 people. So if you are a recipient, be sure to pass along to 7 other bloggers.

OK, I have a whole bunch of work to do....

So I would look at it this way: Do you really want to work for a place that doesn't do all of the interviews? I mean...not for nothing, but... I'm hoping you get the CBS job, personally.

I'm so glad you liked the award! Its a lot of fun, I think, and gets people moving around the blog world.

You have a good night!

Happy wandering!

The Writer...and her dog, Bear

Just remember the best is yet to come, and also the best is always saved for last, so keep this in mind and never ever give up! Always claim what you want, claim the job you want every single day, say it aloud and I grant you will get it!
p.s. I do this with shoes and it really works!
