yo can I drop some advice all you kids trying to get entry level jobs need to learn? I learned it the hard way and now I shall impart that to you.

when you see this shit, that goes “you need like 10 years experience and all this other qualifications nobody with all that would ever apply for a job like this with”, that means one thing: they are weeding out people who don’t believe they can achieve that level. They go “sigh, I can’t even compete, fuck it.” and don’t apply, saving the company the trouble.

What you, as a fresh new student, need to do- is apply anyway with a Luffy-like optimism that you will get that fucking job!! You don’t have a million years experience BUT YOU’LL TRY AND NEVER GIVE UP ETC. You write an opener letter with that in it, submit your shit, and get that goddamn job because they just found somebody who’s willing to give it a try anyway, who has the confidence and the ability to play with the big boys and they will train you to become a master because fresh meat is vital to the industry. 

tldr: APPLY ANYWAY, YOUNG GRASSHOPPER

i really wish i’d read this three months ago

to those who are still looking for their first job: it wouldn’t hurt to try. the worst thing that can happen is that you get a “no”

Also, even if you don’t get the job:

Take time to send a handwritten thank you card. Tell them that you appreciate that they took the time to interview you/look over your résumé, and that if anything pops up, to let you know.

My friend was turned down for an internship with the Blazers but followed up with a letter like that, and two weeks later, they called her saying a spot had opened up and decided to contact her since she said she was still interested.

PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO SEND A NOTE THANKING THEM FOR THEIR TIME EVEN IF YOU DON’T GET THE JOB. Who knows, they might remember you!

Oh god, if I had known that last year…
