Pay me? And hire me again?

March 17. Day 260.

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!?

Gained: TBD.
