You may want to read this first to refresh, but you dont have to: http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=25668 To update, I didn't get the job, not even an interview. This is what he said after I applied AGAIN to him because he reposted his job advertisement. I more or less asked for an answer on what he is looking for because he obviously didnt find it the first time. He didn't even answer me on that question, so how am I going to help myself get a job?? Geese. I want to say something back, however I'm not sure what. This could be good or bad and I of course don't want it working against me. So is it just me, or is this guy a jerk? Not to mention discriminating even though it seems he has plausible reason to dislike my college's photography program. I did not alter these messages. He said: Angela.... An Algonquin degree generally rules out most applicants....sendme a half dozen jpgs of your best work and perhaps prove me wrong..... Paul PS......I do have 1355 applicants... I said (sent him 6 of my best images): Thank you for replying, If I may ask, why does an Algonquin degree rule out most applicants? A lot of those students were great last year (I went to this year's exhibit). I honestly wish I knew what you wanted in an assistant. Attached are some files. Enjoy, --Angela He said: Unfortunately 99% of Algonquin grads don`t have the stuff to cut it in the real world. I have only been happy with one of ten I have hired...my clients are very demanding. The best candidates tend to come from Fanshawe and Humber....whose courses are far more rigourous........and teach a lot more than taking photographs. Nice shots...but sorry, you didnt make the cut for interviews....Paul What's your opinion?
