"Hello Matt. My name is xxx and I am a food stylist. I was wondering if I could drop off my book sometime next week for someone to review."MATT:
"Oh, but of course. I'd love to see it."STYLIST:
"Great. And by the way, your Cinco De Mayo ad from last year was just terrible." MATT:
"Your ad, the one you ran last year, it was just terrible. The food styling and the photography were just awful."MATT:
"Ah, um, well I see. Thank you for calling, I'll check out your book next week."
The End. Literally.
Ladies and gentleman, I don't need to tell you that when you are looking for work you should be as polite and mannered as possible. Bad-mouthing the work of a potential employer as well as other colleagues in your field is a sure-fire way to make sure the big door closes on your opportunity faster than Donald can say "you're fired!"
It's just a thought.
