Re: Do your airchecks get heard?

...except if you're applying to a post from a Clear Channel station, where they sent you to their specialized web page to submit your materials.

Re: Can't Afford the Move?

You have the socialist mentality of whining about what others aren't doing for you. Stop being a baby and try creating enough value that someone would pay for your sorry butt to move.

Re: Can't Afford the Move?

It's even worse when they have you drive 4 hours on your own dime for what turns into what I like to call a 'drive-thru' interview.
