Scoring a Job at Country Thunder
Summer has been crazy and filled with working long nights and attending a four-hour class every Tuesday and Thursday. A couple of days ago I was sitting in class after I had just taken an exam in Spanish four. The test did not go as well as I had hoped it would have gone because I felt like I was struggling a lot.
The way the class was set up was that we come in take the exam and then can do whatever we needed to while we waited for our classmates to finish. Since it was a four-hour class there was no time to take the exam and go home because we needed to keep powering through the material. I decided to go take a break and walk around for a little bit. I walked out of the classroom and saw a job board posting that was intriguing to me.
I saw a job posting that was in need of people to work at Country Thunder. This is where big country artists like Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton come and play at a festival in Twin Lakes, WI. Country Thunder is something that I have always wanted to attend but never wanted to pay the crazy amount of money to go. In the meantime, I read the posting and all I had to do was send over my resume to an e-mail and hope for a response.
Later that night after class I went home and immediately revised my resume and sent it over. I was so excited because this opportunity could mean that I could finally go to country thunder and not only that but I could help others in the process!
The next morning, I get a text message from the lady who works for Country Thunder and asked me a couple of questions and then hired me right on! She said it is a paid position and I would be able to work Thursday-Sunday for the festival. At this point, I sprung out of bed and immediately called my dad and shared the great news.
I thought to myself, I am finally going to Country Thunder! I could not contain my excitement because I am someone who is not a big drinker and the main reason for people attending this festival is to get trashed. My logic was even though I have to work the event, I will still be able to hear the music and to me that was good enough.
