One Potato Two





Today I went to S Studios for a QC job.

The people at S emailed me earlier telling me that there were writers on strike around the studio, but not to worry.

And I did run into them as I was walking to the video editing room, but they were really nice to me.

Inside the studio, I don't know if it was because there was a strike going on, but it seemed that less people were actually working.
There was a lot of noise in the other rooms (that distracted me a bit),
and when I was walking down the path outside inside the lot, there were people dancing.

...I don't know, it could be considered "work."

I read manga and that's considered "work" to me, so...

Hope they reach an agreement soon.

One tip regarding your resume, since I used to work a little in Human Resources.
A lot of "fans" do this...they write in their qualifications that they love anime.
That's not a qualification!!
You should write that in the cover letter/email, since they ask for someone who is familiar with manga.

Anyway, if you're interested please apply and help poor Tania!
She is busy, busy, busy...from what I can see.
