Anyone have any job leads for a talented writer/editor in the Northern Connecticut area (Lakeville, CT ideally)?
Let me give props to my hiring manager who I’m quoting below for sharing some advice directly with you all. Next let me repay them by giving a shoutout to anyone reading this in Northern Connecticut. My hiring manager’s brother is a super accomplished writer/editor/Yale grad who needs a full-time job in the area (yes you should never school-name drop for yourself, it’s tacky, but no reason I can’t brag for a complete stranger). He’s also happy to make a career change to internal and external communication/PR work.
Please feel free to post any leads/ideas in comments or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org of even better, hook him up directly & see his writing style (while giving his blog a nice stat traffic spike) at http://www.explanationizer.com/
Now for the juicy stuff to help you…
In other words, ditch the, “I believe my skills and experience would be an asset to your organization for your open position.” That only makes you look bad.
Instead try, “I would kiss your feet everyday on my way into the office and bring you coffee from a street cart if you hire me to work at google. My 15+ years of experience buying street coffee combined with my foot fetish and unwavering, slightly obsessive desire to work at google would make me an ideal Recruiting Manager for your New York offices. I want to make an amazing place to work even better, and would make sure to get google back in the #1 spot on the best places to work list by bringing in the top talent of our city. I’ve done this for 12 different companies in less than three months at each blah blah blah.”
Hope you get the point kids…just don’t creep out the hiring manager either, so keep the fetishes mum, ok?
