Several months ago, I landed a short-term gig for a heavy hitter in the industry I'd like to end up in.
It was thrilling to work with them and see the final results implemented.
Only I haven't been paid yet.
Today I emailed my boss, asking him what the deal is. And with this opportunity, I proposed a follow-up project.
The chances, again, are slim. The firm is big and powerful. It has more eager+qualified employees to choose from than an In-n-out Triple Triple has calories (a lot, OK???). Just because I got one gig doesn't mean it will be easier to get another. Etc etc.
But wouldn't that be sublime!?
