Yes you read that correctly, ole dozo has an interview with Barstool Sports. I honestly am still in shock. While it is not a blogging positon I am still incredibly excited about the potential opportunity and where things can go in the future.
I'll briefly explain what is up for your boy.
Yesterday barstool blogged about a new opening to help run their viceroy accounts. www.barstoolsports.com/barstoolu/were-officially-hiring-full-time-employees-for-the-viceroy-program/
I sent an email explaining why I think I'd be a good hire and they replied today asking to set up an interview. While I don't know too much more about the job I honestly do not care, I'd be a janitor at barstool headquarters if it gave me a .1% chance to become a blogger.
Now nothing is official yet, all I know is that the first offical real job interview I'll ever have is for my dream company. All the talk from my friends and most importantly my father doubting me makes this that much sweeter. I very well could not get hired but just having the chance to get my foot in the door to me is a gigantic win and makes me feel incredible. I know I'd be great at this job. While it's not blogging I hope I can thrive at this. You gotta start somewhere.
Obviously I'll tell them about DOL and the success it has had and hopefully parlay that into something. But if it doesn't I'm fine with that. Just to be a part of the team will be enough for me. I'm an ex offensive-linemen, I'm a team guy, its in my blood. No stats for me (excpept for the 1 carry I got on senior day) I'm just here to help the other guys look good and get some wins. Same thing when I play basketball. I'm all about picks and hard fouls. Gotta know your role.
But I mean if there's a "look at all this talent we had right under our nose the whole time" situation with me then that's awesome too. Like when a football coach steals a kid off the soccer team and turns him into a star kicker. If I can be the Steven Hauschika of Barstool that'd be perfect. But we'll cross that bridge when/if we get there. Even if that doesn't happen just to the chance to have a job working for a company I love is an absolute honor and dream come true. I know I'd absolutely kill it at the job I applied for. I just want to make a living helping barstool grow, however I can, that is my biggest goal.
I'll know more hopefully later today but wanted to share this news with everybody. Keep rooting for me and say a prayer to whatever God you believe in for me. Hopefully things work out because if they don't it will be incredibily embarrassing having posted so much about this and my dreams just to get them crushed and my heart broken by yet another thing that I love in a very public setting.
P.S. very happy to see my dad is soooo excited for me.
