I didn’t get the Cox Automotive copywriter job. I’m getting so I hate rejection letters. I’m so familiar with their layout and language now that I sometimes don’t even have to open them. So I don’t.
I had a feeling I was not going to get that job. Even though the interview went well. I don’t know, I just had a feeling. My feelings are almost never wrong.
Sometimes they seemingly out of left field go with someone else for aggravatingly random reasons, like, this person has experience with startups.
I’m having a bad attitude right now. I know that. I’ve only just started trying again.
Anyway, there are plenty of other, probably better, opportunities. It just wasn’t the right one for me. They wanted 2700 words a day. That’s a lot for one day. I’m sure I could do it, but other places have been more concerned with quality over quantity.
And it was automotive. It sounds weird, but I’m not really that familiar with car lingo.
On the other hand, a well-known clothing retailer is looking for a copywriter. I got a call from a recruiter yesterday. I was like, YES!! I can’t wait to hear back about that one. Because, as we know, clothes are my thing. Retail is my thing. I already have a good feeling about this opportunity.
I just have to try not to get too excited about it, yet.
