Recently i applied for another job to supplement my income. The position was writing survival and Zombie based content for a popular blogging site. Subsequently i didnt get the job so i thought i’d publish an exerpt from my pitch —
"Im not exactly sure how to go about expressing my interest in this role. It’s something that i think about on a daily basis. My Zombie Apocalypse plan has been meticulously calculated and efficiently prepared. It involves adaptable strategies based on varying factors (Ie : Rate of infection, level of mass hysteria, availability of candy etc).
I have practiced the art of ‘Zombie dispatch’ from an early age, preferring to take the “head-shot” rather than waste ammo on a meaty torso. Weapon of choice being a combination of Pistol and Shotgun. My close-range politics are : Decapitation of the undead is only an option when it is THE ONLY option.
I am well versed in all things undead. My all time favorite documentaries and instructional videos include : Shaun of the Dead, 28 days later, Evil Dead 3, and The Walking Dead series. I use educational tools such as these to stay one step ahead of the undead horde.
My creed is : Supply. Fortify. Survive. (And have fun where appropriate)
The only thing i fear more than Zombies are Zombies on fire.”
