Anime North/Colossalcon Schedule News *EDIT*

Journal Entry: Tue May 14, 2013, 1:02 AM


***EDIT***

Ok, so I got the job! I start on Friday, so I'm going to let them know I have these events that I had planned months in advance, and hopefully everything will work out. 
Hope for me, my lovelies!!! :heart:

Hey guys! 

So I know Colossalcon is in less than a month, and usually I put out my schedules a month in advance. However, I've never had 2 cons scheduled at the same time, and I'm currently very scared that I may not get time off for AN AND Colossalcon. I am trying to get a job, one of which has been toying with me for 2 weeks now. I haven't told them I need these two cons off, and I'm afraid they may not hire me because they are so soon and they're so close together. 

My "personal" and "business" schedules are wide open for pretty much the rest of summer (except Otakuthon), so I told them my weekly schedule is great so that I'd get hired. But that was at the beginning of May. Now it's 10 days to AN, I still don't have the job, (they actually called my references and still nothing), and I'm either worried I won't get it or that I will, but they won't give me the days off. Colossalcon is more important to me than AN at this moment, just because I don't get a hotel or anything for AN (other than a badge). Colossalcon I have paid for my badge and hotel, secured transport, etc... So I intend to go regardless. But if I have to choose one or the other, I'm going with Colossalcon.

If that happens, I may have to cancel some AN shoots, depending on what days they want me to work, if I have to work at all, or if I even get hired. 

I know for those of you with whom I booked with for AN, this may come as a huge inconvenience, and I am really sorry if it happens. But for now, everything is still on track. 

I'm unsure about when to release my schedule for Colossalcon. I'm hoping to get it out sometime this week. The place that I'm hoping wil hire me said they'd call me about the job on Friday, it's Tuesday, and still nothing, so I'm going to stay optimistic. Hopefully I'll have the Colossalcon schedule up no later than Saturday.

Thanks so much for everyone's understanding for my lateness and for my situation at this time, I really appreciate it.

Anyways, That's it for now. TTYL!

Ugh I know the feel, I'm totally in the same boat right now with job hunting. One of the statuses on site says "interviewing" and I'm wondering what that even means because I haven't even got a call yet. And a week ago I had an interview and I wasn't sure if I had to cancel Acen or not.
It's so frustrating job hunting these days and then not wanting to tell them you need certain weekends off for cons. OTL I feel your pain.

Ugh, so awful isn't it? Glad to hear my pain is shared by peers in the community. it's such an awkward position too. "Hi, I'd like a job. BTW I attend these anime cons 5-6 times a year, 2 of which are coming up in the next month. Can I get them off?" XD

Hahaha yeah. timing always seems to happen that way. "Oh look! I almost have a job, but a con is right around the corner..." Like the universe can never let you land a job in that super long down time between cons. nope. never.

Oh man I hope you get the job! : O
I can understand your situation as I've been in something similar a couple times. I usually try and tell them "I've had this planned for a while now, and while I know it may inconvenience you, if I could get those dates of that'd mean alot."
*Fingers crossed!*

Yeah, I'm hoping they'll understand, since the rest of my schedule is pretty much open except for cons and a wedding I have in July.

Awesome congrats! : D
As awesome as conventions are, having a job is definitely better.
You can only hope and pray that they give you the days you need Karen, I would normally start with "I've had these 'trips' planned for a few months now, so if possible I'd really like not to miss them, please and thank youuuuuu."

Thanks! Yeah, I'm gonna try my best to get them off. I'd had to have to cancel one or both of the cons. I doubt it'll happen, but you never know.
