So this week in job searching didn’t consist of much searching.

I did a few LinkedIn Easy applications, but for the most part, I focused on preparing for the final interview/presentation for a copywriting position I'm in the running for.

I keep saying I’ll do a post about my career history, but I can never find the time to condense all of the bullshit I’ve been through. I’ll just say I’ve spent my entire “career” (I have a hard time calling my work history a legit career) job searching.

Note: I wrote this as a sample for a job I applied for, but wanted to share it with Medium since it received positive feedback.
