So I had my meeting with Atlantic today and it was amazing. The first way that I proved everyone (a long list of people..other people in the industry I personally feel I am competing with, family, and more)was actually getting the meeting…The last company I worked with had to pay 500$ per meeting just to get into Atlantic Records. So, just getting into the building and meeting with the SVP of marketing was an accomplishment that none of my ‘rivalries’ could do. I was hoping to get hired on the spot but I think I did as best as possible. She said she was very impressed with me and her and the president were meeting about reconstructing the department and that she would talk to me after taht- also she is going on maternity leave and didnt think it was fair to have someone start with her gone and no one to train them. Sooo I figured considering the cirumstances I should still be proud of myself- Plus the meeting lasted two hours! I ended up preparing three proposals for her and presenting them- which she said no one else had done anything like that so….I am considering it a victory. I am proud of myself and think I deserve to be.
Besides all that..honestly, fuck them. Im in it for myself from now on. I know I can do it and I dont need anyone else to believe in me but myself.
ahmen ; )
