10 Reasons Why BuzzFeed Should Hire Me To Be The Next Beauty Editor

Yeah, it's been done before but never quite like this. This. Is. The. Remix.

Posted on

1. Some things are just predestined, right?

My name is Janera, and I'm a Cosmetic and Haircare Enthusiast - which also kinda translates to me being a Makeup Artist, Hairstylist, and Beauty Writer.I interviewed for this position back in 2014, and although I didn't receive an offer, I believe in trying again until someone says, 'Let's just give this girl a chance, because she won't seem to go away.'

2. I'm already all over the web!

Like that time I was voted "Most Stylish New Yorker" by Time Out New York, but trust me, I dress ten times better, now!

Cool Story, Bro: The opening scene (where I'm spinning in the streets like Mary Tyler Moore) just so happened to be shot in FlatIron, right outside of your office.

I had no idea that three years later, I would be dead set on working in that same office. Predestined, right?

I graduated from FIDM with a degree in Beauty Merchandising and Marketing.

I was also ballsy enough to go to the President and Vice President of FIDM, and formally propose my idea of creating a Beauty Editor position for their official magazine, MODE. Needless to say, my proposal was accepted, and I became the first ever Beauty Editor!The best thing I learned from this opportunity was that the best leaders aren't afraid to take initiative, and learn as they grow.

5. I'm a self-proclaimed "Multicultural Hair Whisperer."

"CANDIDATES SHOULD SEND A COVER LETTER SPECIFICALLY SPEAKING TO THEIR EXPERIENCE WITH NATURAL HAIR AND MULTICULTURAL BEAUTY." - Beauty Editor, Job PostingClearly, I have natural-multicultural textured hair that I attempt to tame everyday, but I was recently recruited to be a part of the Style Team for Shea Moisture.

9. This awesome guy did something similar!

Alfred Ajani, stood at the Waterloo station everyday with a sign in hopes of gaining employment, and the media attention that he gained ended up landing him a position at Astoria Group. "Advice I would give to graduates: Don’t be scared; safe is risky. Be ready to promote yourself and your ideas. It only has to work once for it to be a success," he said.So, basically, I'm following his advice - Now, let's see where it gets me.
