    Default I really need some positive thoughts

    Well gang,
    I am in need of the power of your positive thoughts and prayers. I just retired from the US army and the job I had lined up was canceled thanks to the budget sequester issue. Now I am scrambling to find a job.

    Tomorrow there is a job fair locally here in Indianapolis. I am going of course. One of the companies that will be there is Radio Disney. They have two jobs as Account Executives open. I am not a big fan of sales to be honest, I used to be an Army Recruiter which is selling the Army and I was good at it but it wasn't fun. But this is Disney and I would love to have the chance to sell for Disney (I think).

    So if you guys could send positive thoughts my way. I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks

    Been thinking about you with your job search. Stupid sequester! Good luck and maybe Disney is the lucky charm.

    Sitting and listening to the Radio Disney station and taking notes on what advertisements they air. Hopefully I can establish a good pattern on who they market to at what times so I can talk about that and impress the people at the booth. Need to seem like the best candidate they could hope for.

    Will say that the music they play is ....... not wrote for someone like me. Could be worse I guess.

    They market to moms. Focus on moms and things moms would buy/use/like. Moms are the ones listening to the message while they drive the kids around all day with that station on.

    Well, I sat through 3 hours of program/advertising. I took notes on each ad and assigned it labels as to the source (local, national, internet, internal Disney) and apparent target (Mom, Dad, generic Parent, Kid & Parent, and Kid).

    I put those details into an excel document and then created a bar graph and two pie charts. I then took some time to analyze what the data appeared to say. I put the graph/charts and analysis into a two slide powerpoint presentation which I am going to print off in color tomorrow morning. I am really hoping that they will be impressed by the effort. I am not an Ad man by trade but I can be trained and put forth a 110% effort. Lets hope that they can see that as well.

    Good luck today!

    You will find something. Are you working with any transition companies at all or recruiters? I know there are many, many companies around the country looking to hire veterans. Your skill set is very in demand.

    Good luck! My husband just found out when his time off will start due to the sequester. Just hoping his job with the army holds out a couple of years so he can draw retirement.

    So the job fair is over. The radio Disney person there was the lady who leads the part time folks not the station manager. Its the station manager who hires the position I was looking at. So the work I did last night on analyzing their adds was for nothing. My resume was placed in a stack of perhaps 50. Nothing to make myself more memorable or show them how enthusiastic I am for the job.

    Sigh. Back to the drawing board.
