I have tried, for years, to get into About.com as a guide and/or a contributing writer. I’ve never even gotten into prep even though I make sure I am more than highly qualified for what they want for their guides before I apply. The worst part is that I never hear ANYTHING, one way or another, for months and months. I rely on their automated “check application status” link and always get the same response: “we have not had a chance to review your application…”
BULL! I applied 5 months ago! How have you not reviewed my application yet? If you’ve reviewed it and don’t want my services just tell me so I can move on and quit obsessively checking the status of my applications! Man!
Okay. Now I need to go check my status again. Sigh.
