Ok very long story short(er).... I have a bachelors in History and Social Sciences, worked every day of my live after high school which included office manager of a small lawn business (1 yr) and recreation aid at a community center (5 yr city position) I'm 24 years old. I just resigned from city job to be office manager full time because it was only 30 hours a week and the lawn business offered way more money. Wife has new job which more than doubles our income, and since I'm about to shoot myself at my current job, I want to start applying my degree. Full support of my wife to to whatever I want. Here is my question... In Alabama the employment rate ain't bad, but jobs that require degrees are hard to find. I have always wanted to be behind the scenes in the television/radio news industry. There are a few stations hiring in my city, but I do not have the experience (even though I feel like I could excel at the job). The position is assistant producer/proofreader. I just want to walk into the station and say hey, I'll work like an intern, no pay but in a month I want consideration. Is this a waste of time??? Of course this is just my issue in a nutshell, I plan on marketing myself a little better than that. What do you guys think?
