THE HOOKUP: GETTING A JOB AS MEANS OF A RECOMMENDATION

“Sometimes you need to know someone.”


not always what you know

People are always focusing on their qualifications for a job, but they are not really paying attention to the connections. Ever hear that saying, I ain’t what you know but who?” Well,  what happens when you don’t know anyone that can get you through the door? You now have to figure out a way to get noticed so that you you can be noticed by people who can aid you on your road to success. But, what if you never come in contact with those gate keepers? Does that mean you can never succeed in life? There is always a way around the obstacle to get to where you have to go.

you are the plug

What happens when you are the one that everyone wants to go to because you have the connections. Then you have not only a power position, but you are the one that has to deal with the upset when you say no to people. Trust and believe, it will happen because you can’t say no everyone. Because everyone think they are qualified for a role, but they are not. And you hate to be the one to tell them they are what is needed for a role. But you are also the one to tell them that you cannot recommend a job because deep down inside you know what that other organization is looking for. But you could also be wrong about this; I mean you are basing it on your own views of the person. People have been known to change.

unrelated yet similar in statement

When you are receiving a letter of recommendation, and each person has similar statements, yet unrelated, that says a lot. Especially if you have not been working with this organization for a while. That means you were a very memorable person. Memorable enough where they could write something compelling even after you left because there was a good impression by yourself.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
