I know I’m not alone here, but I am hitting a brick wall figuratively…and now I’m considering it literally. Next to the picture of me is the job description of my latest rejection.
Two books in Social Media related fields, a third on the way.
Ten years of teaching experience, including courses in Social Media related fields.
Speaking engagements including the Library of Congress, the New Media Expo, Book Expo America, and coming this summer LIANZA (New Zealand)
Years of experience with audio and video software and hardware.
All this, and I’m blogging from my iPhone on a train…
Yeah…I’m apparently lacking the experience and skills you need, Mr Washingtonian needing a Social Media Manager. Frel you!
A bittersweet end to what was one astounding week. My first professional blog entry went live this week with Apple iPhone Apps and as you saw in the earlier rant LIANZA has booked me for FIVE talks in Auckland and Wellington, New Zealand. So while the DC employers dismiss me, the Kiwis are rolling out the red carpet.
Maybe they just dig my accent.
I also found out that I am AHEAD in All a Twitter, so I want to use this weekend to stay ahead of the game. I also got a pat on the back from Wired Pig for using this WordPress iPhone app on what seems to be a really popular segment.
You know what? I dig blogging. I’ve been pretty steamed about the rejection, but sorting through it all, it’s their loss. Those idiots could have hired me, and gotten a return on their investment. Their loss. Not mine.
I’m Tee Morris, and I am hardly down, out, or defeated. I am just warming up in the batter’s circle. Go deep.
