Want to Know What I Sound Like?

Unfortunately from time to time you submit a sample work for a job and things don't work out. That's what happened with a job I applied for a while back. I never use Craigslist for job hunting because I don't trust it (hello...there's been how many Craigslist killers and rapist in the last 3 years..yeah, not for me!). But I kept hearing how you can find good jobs there and so I looked. I found what I thought would be an awesome job and I applied. I made it through round 3 of the hiring process and the woman running the show just disappeared. She doesn't answer emails, her site isn't being updated, etc. So I gave the sample to a friend for use on her blog because it fit better at her place than it does here.

Along with the post is a narrated video sample. (Sorry for the short blackout in the beginning but I had to cut something specific that was added for the job app. I'm not promoting someone who disappears. That's unprofessional.) So if you wonder what an American woman with a thick southern accent sounds like, check it out. I'm speaking really slow to try to time the video out (not my best work lol but it was my first so don't critique me too hard).

  1. I don't think you have a thick southern accent at all.
    But then again I'm used to my dad's Louisiana/east Texas drawl.
