I hope you don't mind if I join you. I'm trying build up my portfolio & refresh my writing skills so that I can hopefully transition back into journalism/freelancing. I have recently applied for a position with my local community newspaper. I'm very excited about that possibility, even though I think the pay is likely terrible.
I'm also looking for demand studios application tips. I submitted an application earlier this week & was turned down. I'm not sure if I can re-apply--does anyone know? My main problem is that all my clippings are at least 10 years old and I don't have an on-line portfolio. I likely didn't put enough energy into my writing sample either, I know it could be improved.
I'm also looking for tips for suite101 applications. I haven't applied, but I'd like some suggestions about how to prepare a successful application.
Very happy to be joining you
Thanks so much mamas!
