My Best Application For the Job I Didn’t Get

  1. I am a writer.
  2. I run my own company called Creative Blue Balls (we have a website, too, it’s just undergoing changes. Ready in September, promise!).
  3. At present, I am unable to financially sustain myself from the above. Alas, unrelated jobs must be worked, bills must be paid (such is the struggle of most pursuing a creative avenue).

The Task

  1. There is a typo in there somewhere. They didn’t notice, either.
  2. Said employer — according to friend — also described it as “intelligent, witty, funny and incredibly deep. He was SUPER mega impressed.”
  3. This morning, I discovered I didn’t get the job.
  4. I did not get the job because, alas, experience has proven itself time and time again to be a bitch and they opted for somebody with more logistics/operational experience.
  5. Not one to rest on my laurels, I thought I wouldn’t let this go to waste as I still very much need to pay my bills. So if you’re reading this, like this and are hiring, get in touch.
  6. Even if you’re not hiring but did like it, share it. Somebody might read it who is hiring!
