I was looking through a bunch of stuff I had written a few months ago and found some thoughts I wrote almost 4 months ago. I had totally forgot about it and thought it was definitely a look into someone who seriously gave up on what I wanted to do. That my friends is work in the entertainment side of television.I did something I never thought I could do... I got comfortable.
There is a girl here that has been working my same shift and doing the same job for 5 years. Yes... 5 years... same entry level job, same pay, same thing over and over again. She is a sweet girl, someone I consider a great friend because I have hung out with her outside of work many times. But, 5 years in the same entry level position? I don't know howshe is doing it.
What sucks is that she has been up for promotions but turned them down because it was a "promotion" but the promotion meant a significant loss in pay. You ask, Why am I talking about all? I was reading though my email and saw a Job Posting for a position that I had applied for about 4 months ago. I have applied for the position no joke 4 times already. It is still an entry level position but has better hours than I do now.
The last time I applied I did 2 interviews. The first and then a followup to see if I was the right fit for the position. This had happened the previous time for the position and usually after 4 or 5 months the person was fired for not doing a good job, but had qualifications that certain producers liked in this position. Tall, blonde hair, blue eyes,large chest and was a former intern for the show. I feel like I know what all of you are thinking... " stop applying for the position." I mean, there could be a reason why I have not got the position in the past. I was told to my face that I was one of two people they were looking at and in the end these girls were chosen over me.
What I do know, Is that I need a change. My parents are going to be in town tonight. Going to see a basketball game at Madison Square Garden and then go to dinner. I think I may try to figure stuff out the next few weeks.
