Dear Stranger Who Asked Me to Supply Him With a List of Jobs to Apply to

Really

If you can’t read the above message it says,

Hi Topher, [Blacked out name] asked me to reach out to you regarding possible work opportunities. I have 6+ years of Digital Ad Ops experience with major brands, including a few movie launches and major publications (CBS news, NYTimes), both search and display, but also am interested in Traditional Media.

If there were any positions you could recommend, with links, I would happily apply myself.

Thanks, Resume attached.

 

First off I want to make it clear, I’m a nobody in the industry. I’m a low ranking employee at a big company. However, for some reason, I’m asked all the time about getting people jobs. I like helping people and I do on the occasion, but every once in a while I get a request that infuriates me. This is a vast overreaction that was written on a day after I had received more than one entitled job request and I had hit my limit of kind “go jump off a cliff” responses. No, I did not send this. It’s only here for you to enjoy.

Dear Resume attached,

 

Thank you for your incredibly presumptuous message. Let me begin this reply by letting you know that I unfortunately have reached my quota of resume reviews for the day, so I’m not going to be able to help you out. Here are a few reasons why, broken down by section.

10 Sure Fire Ways To Make Sure You Don’t Get Any Writing Done

27918824411_6f9968e037

There is nothing worse than starting to write and actually getting something down. Personally, I prefer to distract myself with a million different things to make sure that I don’t accomplish anything. I mean, why write when you can catch up on shows that you’ve been meaning to watch or petting your dog for a weirdly long amount of time? Being productive is vastly overrated and here are ten awesome ways that I’m intentional about not getting my daily writing done. 

1. Watch a movie you’ve never seen before while you write

Writing with a movie on that you’ve seen before can just turn into white noise and help you get in the zone. No way Jose. You need to turn on something you’ve never seen before that intrigues you. Preferably something so complicated that you have to pay absolute attention to it. This will really help make sure you don’t even know what you intended to write in the first place.
