Good or Bad, Make the Call.

Hello Reader,

It's been a while since I stopped by, and I do apologize for the indefinite absence. A lot has happened, and is happening. So as you all know this is the period for hunting; summer internship hunting I mean, and boy has it been tough! If you take a look at my sent folder in my e-mail, you'll think I was a stalker. I have lost count of how many internship openings and companies I have applied to in the past month.

Initially I was started of looking for advertising internship positions since my focus is account management, but when I realized that I kept seeing PR openings I had to keep an open mind and apply for those too. Afterall my major is advertising and PR. So far, I've had about four interviews out of which two promised to call the next week with their decision. Its been two weeks and neither companies have called.

Now, I don't have a problem with rejection. I do understand that the job market is pretty competitive and agressive right now, and I do understand that they may have found a more qualified candidate for the position. But for crying out loud, please have the courtesy to call or e-mail, and say thanks, but we went with someone else. This way, I too can cross the company off my list and focus on others and continue with my search. I am almost tempted to ask why they couldn't simply do this, but I dnt want to come off as an upset or disturbed applicant...so I'll let go, and move on.

Regardless, the hunt continues and I remain positive that in due time I'll get a call-back.
I'll do my best to keep you posted.
In the mean time have a great weekend, and pls DO NOT TEXT AND DRIVE!!!

Adios,
Yvonne.
