    I know you're disappointed Scott, but hopefully that will change sometime soon. In the meantime, their loss is our gain!! I love to read your narratives. Thanks for giving us such quality articles.

    Truer words have never been spoken. Seen this hold true in all kinds of professions/skills.

    keep at it! I had a similar career path. did calibration stuff starting at a hobby level working my way up. you are much better at writing than I was at tuning when I started. ignore all negative input, pay attention to constructive input and keep working on your craft... and eventually people will be asking you to work for them. not vice versa.

    I knew before that! I'm not a very good story writer, and you are. Plain and simple.

I know many of us enjoy your blog items, and appreciate the gratis work that seriously does take quite a bit of time above all the car work you are doing. I know very well all the extra work it takes to make the blog post, I'd be doing it if it were easy and not time consuming.
    I am thrilled I made it to the interview level.

    I am sure you know how much work it is after I convinced you to write a blog for the Anti Tour last year.

    I have been ignoring family and friends telling me I should be a writer my whole life. Starting to listen to them. Satisfies the creative side of my brain my current job does not.

This sort of thing happens to be so easy for me, a casual conversation turned into a business opp. 9 out of 10 people are eager to talk about the car hobby they love, and they love the attention. Its really bad, I think your selling yourself short. I could see you being in the car mecca of Cali and having your own business card ''freelance photog''
    setting up and appointment to shoot a car that's feature worthy. Like they say , there is more than one way to skin a cat. Lots of mags out there, HR not the only game.
    You are right.

    Scott, don't let yourself get discouraged. Look for the next opportunity and move forward when you have a chance. You never know what the situation was with regard to the position.
