San Diego sports design

    Doesn't seem like sports designers are always on the move? San Diego has blown through a bunch, and it seems like sports design jobs are always being posted. What gives?
     
  2. I applied once, mostly because I thought it would be cool to go to San diego, and was left kind of put off. i don't remember who I got the email from, but was really raked over the coals as far as my design skills go. Basically, i got the, "The San Diego Union-tribune way is the best and only way and, let me tack on that you are a bad designer." Folks, I'm certainly not the best designer, but I am in no way as bad as I felt when I read the email. I've talked with a guy i work with who used to work there a decade or so ago, and he said it's why he left and it didn;t sound like anything changed. I left that email thinking, "It isn't even worth it." Hopefully, someone has a bit more insight, but I wanted to add this to the list.

    Same thing here, although this was in the pre-email days. I sent some stuff out, then called a couple weeks later. Their response was essentially, that I wasn't that great, and they could hire anyone they want, and they've got piles of resumes, etc. I subsequently went to a bigger, better and geographically desireable place. I got the feeling that the U-T kind of liked being full of itself. The Orange County paper has also been known to cop this attitude.

    So does Jason get worked back in to the sports-front rotation in Fort Worth?
