The Beginning ... 1/11/'11
For the next year I am going to blog about all the places and job positions that I apply for ... and most likely, all the ways I get told "No!"
You see, for the past two years I have been applying - and all over the country - for any and all jobs I believe I am qualified for. And for the past two years I have heard - almost exclusively - "no" ... in many fashions ... so this year I am going to keep a blog of said applications and their responses ... and see what comes of it!
Who knows what this adventure might bring, perhaps nothing more than a year long dedication to one project, perhaps more.
I will give accurate theatre names and job titles of the things that I apply for, but will keep that info to myself when talking about rejections ...
Here we go!
