It was nearly a year ago that BEN READ was written up as the new CSD at KBJR, the Quincy Newspaper-owned NBC affil in Duluth, Minnesota. And yet…it didn’t hit the blog. No doubt it was before the Word Press classes and all. So let’s play Catchup Monday and give out a shout to Ben, who’s been doing a great job in what might be the coolest place in the US at the moment. Mid to low 70’s this week. Ben brought tons of talent to the job, as well as a stint being Assistant CSD at one time. Sorry for the delay Ben, but please accept a hearty Well Dunne!
What’s with some employers (stations, networks, cable nets, agencies, etc) who are creative in scope…what’s with them asking for a TON of work, input, ideas even scripts (!) as a requisite for getting a job? Do they really want all that FREE creative just handed to them? Can they not read a resume and look at former work to determine whether you are their cup of tea? Should you ‘bend the knee’ and do it then submit an invoice for consulting? Seems to me an entity that does this is NOT one that any real creative would want to work for. If the employer is this insipid as to creative people, imagine how awful it would be to try to deal with them daily. This paragraph is entirely the thoughts of this writer and is not intended to portray any known entity, blah blah blah…
