I’m a creative writer with quite some experience in writing diverse articles and song writing. I’m looking for a career opportunity using my talent. Anyone has any ideas how to go about this? I’m interested in copywriting, promotional writing..etc. Any advice?
Maybe send your resume to magazines that do write-ups on different companies and stores.
I have had short stories published in local papers. They are always looking to fill space. Of course I did not get payed per word or at all for that matter. It was more just for my enjoyment.
If you are interested in working with Jewish newspapers, you should think of some ideas for a feature series. Give specific ideas. I have done so with one paper and was given the go ahead, although I have not done it yet.
What you seem to want to do is to get into the ad business. I don’t know how you would go about finding a job in that industry. I would suggest checking listings on Craigslist.com or Talentzoo.com. The latter is probably a better place to search.
Mothers Helpers, Lifestyles… depends where you live because these are in Flatbush.
Start with writing letters to the Mishpacha Inbox 😉
noitallmr: is that what ya do?!
No Jax that’s history- I’ve moved onto bigger better stuff by now…;)
noitallmr: ha ya don’t ever wanna know what i used to do! 😉
Jax: surely it can’t be worse than my former job??? I used to make the bends in bananas…please don’t make fun of me- we all start low on the ladder to success!
But hey now that I revealed my dark history- what DID you used to do Jax?
noitallmr: bends in bananas?! i’m lost! but i really don’t think thaey would let my prank jokes around here! sorry pal! 😉
Thank you so much! Those great curvy bends have been sooooo helpful to my kids, even the teens enjoy a great bended banana!
I’m so curious, who does it now? 🙂
noitallmr: ha only after Bemused posted did i get it! sweet, sorry i did laugh! 😉
Bemused: maybe they gave that job to the monkeys after he was done with it!? 😉
Bemused: no problem just doing my job!!! I think they got a machine to do ’em now…typical…don’t think about what noitallmr will do with his life from now on let’s just make a machine that takes apart his job…such thoughtless people! But glad you enjoyed my patent!
Jax: ya know how bananas have that great curvy shape? Well actually they come off the tree straight as can be and I spent half my life bending them into the shape your so familiar with! 😉
noitallmr: your a riot! i don’t know too much about bananas, i actually never ate one! i’m serious! (unless maybe when i was a baby & just don’t recall such a memory!) 😉
