I took wanted to know what [the ever-so-handsome] Agent M. a.k.a Ryan Penagos, Editor of Marvel.com thought about an applicant mentioning having a comic blog in a cover letter or interview with a comic publishing company such as Marvel. Here are his wise and kind words. Check out Ryan’s blog at www.agentmlovestacos.com
I don’t think it’s something you need or even want to put in a cover letter. If it comes up in an interview, that’s fine. And if you get the job, you definitely want to disclose stuff like that. But putting it into a cover letter probably won’t help your chances. It may not necessarily hurt your chances, but some companies may frown upon such expressed fandom. Good luck!
Thanks for the words Ryan! And for the luck!
