Ok, so I went to a party on Friday. I met a really awesome lady who asked what I do, and I told her that I was looking for working in the writing field. She told me that her friend worked for a company nearby that needed to hire some copywriters! So she got my contact info and texted her friend who works at the company. Here is her text:

Hey Jenny! I messaged my friend about the job and these were her responses.

"I Yes yes! The company is MediaBrands publishing. We are hiring in a few areas — we also really need good art directors as well. Here's a link, I think you'd need to select the company and location to find specific listings. https://mediabrands-openhire.silkroad.com/epostings/inde… You can also have them email me directly at [redacted] if you want"

[i set the friend's message off in quotes to make it easier to understand who said what.]

So should I apply for the position or should I email my résumé and a basic cover letter to her friend? I realize that I should have done this already but my depression sucks the life out of me and makes me not do things. But I really would like this job and I know networking is how people get jobs these days. Any advice?
