Re: Web Resumes

I never said I had "nothing" to learn from the older gen has a much shorter list to teach now that much of what they used to know is now all but obsolete , including techniques regarding diarys when ppm seems to be the new "perfect" system. Pretty sure I said that the people within the dept. should ...

Re: Web Resumes

No... Really don't get me started. I have a whole "respecting my elders" philosophy that will just drive you nuts and we'll be arguing till the cows come home. Respect is mutually earned- no freebies for wearing dentures. That's the short version. The much longer one will come if you wanna keep batt...

Re: Web Resumes

Uh... Yeah Party Shark, that's what I said. Even gave you cred for helping me see the light, so your extra lecture is kind of pointless. Kind of like quoting my words when anyone reading this thread would have just read that moments ago... Thank you for showing us all that "know it alls' also lack s...

Re: Web Resumes

This forum was, actually, just gonna be a way for me to vent originally, but it's opened my mind a bit. My problem is that I have worked morning shows for a little over 6 years at 3 different stations, and all of the PDs were tools. The first one just looked for a reason to say "nope-impossible" to ...

Re: Web Resumes

I see the other side now. I guess I just assumed from experience that EVERY host seeker these days was also looking for a "web coordinator/ production wiz/ sales killer/ Music Director/ APD/ On site coordinator/ receptionist/ board op/ janitor." I've just been trying to take away the guess work for ...

Re: Web Resumes

Well, I mean this is my whole point. It's supposed to make it EASY for THEM- not just me. For instance, not filling up their email box, not having to fumble around with papers, shows them all the things most demos don't. Gives examples of visual elements and skills you can't get from an mp3. One sto...

Web Resumes

Let's be blunt- there ain't crap for radio work out there these days! Soooooo, having a little over six years in, and being outta work, means I'm sending out tons of 'applications' - especially to job posts at this site. Now, because opportunities are so few and grim, I've built a web resume site. I...

Re: Age discrimination - does it exist in our industry?

The Industry is not made for the young! It WAS made by people who had lived, and were enjoying the benefits of being in the business. Now, there's no benefits, and fewer and fewer RELATABLE personalities. If you're just a liner-jock, great, be 19. If you're tasked with Hosting a real show, then a 19...

Re: What Has Radio Come To ??

The saddest part of all, is that it's just dawning on some people now. When people say, "Radio has changed," this is what they're talking about. Radio is dead, and only it's lifeless corpse is left walking around like a mindless zombie. That's actually a pretty good analogy- we the talent, are just ...
