My Mom Always Told Me...

When you want something in life, you should go for it. 

No matter how unattainable you think it may be, go for it! I believe you have to try. If you don't then you may always wonder what if and I'm sorry but life is too short to wonder. 
A weeks ago, I was online looking at local jobs. I came across a radio personality spot for the hottest channel and morning show and it instantly sparked my curiosity to apply. I typed up my cover letter, put my resume in the envelope and mailed it. I figured what's the harm in applying. I may lack experience in radio but I've got enough wit and enough personality to hang with the best of them. Plus... hello, it would be so much fun! 

As the days since apply keep ticking by, I'm seeing that they may not be calling me. I mean I get that I have no experience in radio but I do have other qualifications. I did earn a 4 year degree from Marshall University. I'm a home town girl and know the city! I'm up on pop culture, current events, social networking outlets (hello have you seen my tweets?) and I've got the gift of the gab. I can make conversation with the wall if I needed to. Doesn't all that count for something? 

I once heard about a man who stood on a street corner with all his qualification wrote down on a sign and asking for a job. When it came to the end of the day, he'd got over 100 job inquires and multiple offers. Currently it's too cold outside or I'd seriously consider going over and standing outside their offices with a poster board telling them how rad I really am. I'm not above pulling a  John Cusack circa Say Anything for something I want. 

So here's the deal. WKEE if you ever read this, call me for an interview! I may not look the greatest on paper in the experience department but a resume says nothing when it comes to personality, dependability, drive and social skills! 
Want to help me score an interview? Get ahold of them and tell them how awesome I am! You can reach them via twitter, or facebook !
