Several weeks ago, I Tweeted with great pleasure that I had applied for my dream job: Director of Marketing for the Texas Stars. Those of you that experience been following me know that I cover the Dallas Stars’ AHL associate for Examiner. com. What you will possibly not know is that before my foray into journalism, my career was all sales and advertising.
My first job out of faculty was working for a sports agency that represented 13 NFL clients. Naturally, upon seeing this job posting and studying the outline, I knew I can be its best match – I have the required adventure and more!, I know the team inside and outside, and live and breathe sports. Even my part time job is waitressing…at a sports bar!Last week, I pulled a slightly gutsy stunt and sent a list of the “Top Ten Reasons I Should Be the Marketing Director for the Texas Stars” to the americans I felt can be certainly to make hiring selections – no possible say I am afraid, right?Alas, I am still unemployed, but I’ve shown that I’ve got chutzpah!I’ve been told that they still have not hired for the role, so my fingers and toes and legs are crossed, but I’ve decided it’s time to start attempting to find other opportunities, as well.
