Re: [prbytes] Need Help Finding A PR Job
I'd suggest first that you revisit the resume and cover letter you've
doubtless prepared to circulate among prospective employers and make
certain it's not riddled with errors of the sort contained in the message
below. Never ever send a message to anyone that's not been carefully
proofed to guard against what I hope were miscues in grammar, spelling and
the like -- especially to professionals who are quick to recognize such
I'm not in the L.A. area and have no contacts that might help you
there. Had I such contacts, however, I'd be reluctant to use them after
having read your message.
I know I'm being brutally frank, but someone needs to be if you're ever to
find employment in our discipline.
