Remember in one of my previous blogs where I mentioned that "persistence" was my middle name? Well, during the course of the past 3 months I had contacted an art director 10 times via a generic email address at their company and through LinkedIn. Last week I received an email from the art director and the subject line read "Unsubscribe." That's it...just "unsubscribe." Obviously, she thought I was a newsletter she had inadvertently signed up for or spam or something computerized. Well, I just couldn't resist writing back "You CAN'T unsubscribe...I'm a real live person here!" I did put a smiley face after it and said that I would respect her wishes and not contact her again but you just really have to have a sense of humor in this business or you would go crazy from all the rejections!
