Warning: this is a vent

(Don’t say I didn’t warn you)

How to guarantee that you have no chance at a job/internship/assistant position with Emilie Duncan Event Planning:

1. Send me an email asking for a job and say this: “I am not sure if you work on your own or for a company”

Are you kidding? If you had done ANY research, had even bothered to GLANCE at my site or read my blog you would know this. Just read the about page on my site and it is right there! I own the company!

2. Tell me that you are working towards your “bridal license.”

There is no such thing as a “bridal license.” Our industry is not regulated to the point that a “bridal license” exists. Hopefully at some point in the future there will be an educational process to certify or license planners – for now, there is no such thing as a “bridal license.” You may be getting education and working towards a certificate of some type but there is no official certification or license.

3. Write an email without using spell check. Can you find the errors in this sentence: “I am surrently working towards my bridal lincense.”

Now don’t get me wrong, I cannot spell to save my life BUT I do have and use spell check. What kind of foot are you putting forward when you made 4 spelling errors and actually spelled the word license wrong TWICE in a 9 line email! Weddings are all details – if you can’t be bothered to research the details of my business or use spell check, why would I trust you with the details of one of my weddings?

4. Use a less than professional tone in your email – you are supposedly asking me for a job, act like it!

Sorry, I won’t be “getting back to you either way” – if you had done your research, you would know why.

Vent over. Sorry folks, I had to get that off my chest.
