I want to start by thanking Joshua for inviting me to blog as his guest. I treasure this opportunity and thank him for it.
After a summer of unemployment and a ghost town of SEO full-time in-house gigs, I spotted an unusual position at G4, the video game news site. I am a gamer girl, nerdy literature lover, Chicago-born, Los Angelian-ified; sometimes writer, always reader. So my heart burned at the hope of this opportunity, but my head steadied the beat – this could be another cover letter and resume with zero return. After all, I had applied at health care companies, eCommerce positions, a legal product company, and many more, with one interview and only a handful of callbacks from recruiters.
