Hey You, with the Company: Hire Me!

In an age beset by financial difficulties, hundreds of thousands of people find themselves out of work. And I, being one to follow a trend, am no different.

Having been laid off one week after my company's holiday party and one week before Christmas, (classy timing), I initially relished the time off as an opportunity to do what I "really wanted to do" ... whatever that might be. I threw myself into a creative job search, landing an internship at a high-end showroom two days after being laid off. After a few months of feet-blistering thirteen-hour days, I came to realize that I needed something even more creative to whet my artistic thirst.

I then snagged an internship at a cool, artsy magazine. After interning for barely a month I was promoted to freelance writer, a position I still currently hold and adore. Sadly it's not steady work as the magazine is only published six times a year, so while the money and experience are wonderful, I yearn for a day-to-day position.

I want to have a reason to wake up in the morning, change my clothes and get out of the house. I want to use my creative brain for something more than quirky tweets and stylish outfit choices. I want to be part of your company!

That's right. I want you to hire me for your company. It doesn't matter the field; Journalism, Marketing, Psychology (I have a bachelors in Psychology), Fashion ... I'll even try my hand at singing if it gives me sense of purpose. I know that I could be an asset at any company.

Won't you give me my golden opportunity?
