The Holinka Encouragement: Do Not Give Up!

Holinka BlizzardFor those of you who live under a rock, or generally do not know who Brian Holinka is, let me introduce him. Holinka is is a Blizzard Entertainment employee and former Senior PvP Designer for World of Warcraft, focusing exclusively on PvP. He joined Blizzard and the WoW team in August 2012.

On March 5th, Holinka tweeted something very interesting that I needed to read. It read’s, and I quote. “Teammate shared a story about applying to Blizzard 67 times, to various positions before getting a job here. Continuing to grow and being persistent certainly pays off in the long run. I would also add that getting or not getting a job is so often not about you being “good enough.” More than often it’s about what specifically a company needs at any given time. Stick with it!”

On that note, a few of my followers of the blog & friends encouraged me to apply for the Battle Net News with the Convert To Raid crew. I would like to say a short “Thank You” for the encouragement and believing in me to peruse the position.

Unfortunately, I did not make the cut. Am I bummed out about it? Hell Yeah! However, that does not mean that the blog will be going anywhere. I want to keep going, keep at things, and like Holinka said, to stick with it.

So, thank you as well Brian, really.

I can not say thank you enough to all of you.
