I joined Dormify at the end of 2013, my first post was published on the 9th of September. I remember having butterflies and my heart skipping a beat when I got the email that my first post was published. And the excitement that ensued when I had my 2nd and 3rd posts published, all the way up to my last published post, on the 16th of April in 2014.
I wasn't a Style Advisor for very long and I'm potentially blowing my chances of ever being on the better side with the Dormify reps for posting this, but that's okay because I'm finishing what they started.
My two posts for the month of April, that were chosen to be published - I didn't just type them up and create visuals for no good reason, had not been published. I emailed one of our "bosses" (if that's what they'd like to be called) and asked why they weren't published. I offered to rewrite or tweek the post if that was necessary. But nothing, no response.
Surprisingly, one of my May submissions "The Last Summer" (which was a post about your last summer at home before moving to a dorm or on/off-campus housing) was accepted. Again, I wrote up the post added my own visual, and yet again it was not published.
I emailed my boss, trying to figure what the problem was and again I received no response. I checked my spam and junk mails, multiple email address in case I had emailed her on a separate account, empty and nothing. I was sure I couldn't have done something wrong because I was still receiving the weekly/monthly emails reminding the Style Advisors to submit their posts, the posts to check out, etc etc.
By August, I gave up.
I've officially transferred their emails to my junk mail and as annoyed as I was when I quit. I would do it all over again. I loved all the diy's and the Dormify products. I was given tons of sponsorship opportunities and honestly loved working with Dormify. And even though I still read the blog today; I studied business and professionalism in high school, I'm a business minor, this did not end on a professional note. Emails are important, especially in the digital era we're living in. I truly enjoyed working for Dormify, but I'm also glad I quit.
Update: I sent them a second resignation letter and I finally got a response. They've apologized for never getting back to me, invited me back whenever I'd like (which I probably burnt that bridge with this post), but didn't give me an explanation for my why my post were never published.
