This applying for jobs stuff is for the birds. For the second time since Pink Slip Paradise began in June, I have been called to interview for a job in which I never applied. So, now I'm 0-for-2,153,048 on applications, yet 2-for-2 on out-of-the-blue interviews. Strange.
This time, it's with a little weekly newspaper based in northern Allegheny County, but under the Trib Total Media umbrella. The editors at the Trib sent my name to this newspaper editors when they inquired about possible reporters. The interview is Thursday morning at the old Clark Building on the North Shore, so I'll get to take a nice day-trip downtown. I figure I'll also be able to drop by the Tribune-Review newsroom and introduce myself to the Trib editor for whom I've been freelancing.
Should be fun times.
