Ep 92: The Dark Side of Landing a Dream Gig with Gerald McDonald
In This Episode
This episode is about what happens when, as a freelancer, you get the “dream gig” you think you want, only to find out it isn’t what you want.
If you remember the Matt Mason episode, where he lands the gig with a publisher and moves to Baltimore to become a junior in-house copywriter and loves it… this episode is the opposite of that.
It starts out similar… Gerald landed a gig at the top producing Agora division. He worked hard to get the job. They paid to move him to Baltimore. He was excited to live, breathe and sleep financial sales copy and learn from the best in the biz.
When he got there, everything checked out. The guys he lived and worked with were cool. The guys running the company were cool. No unpleasant surprises from that perspective…
Only problem was, Gerald felt something was off.
Tune in to find out what happened next…
