Damnit people, I was just offering alternative facts.  I heard them before, and was just saying.    8-)

So I dug out my season ticket info, and here's the scoop (prices include minimum donations:

Lower bowl, between the baselines start at $980. 
Lower bowl, in the corners and behind the basket (not including the Rob Frozena/visiting celeb seats) start at $640.

Upper bowl, between the baselines, go from $450 - $560.  Corners and behind the bucket, between $125 and $275.

Do you have any idea how many points you have?  That's a factor as well.

Ive had some pretty good work experience out here. Worked for NFL UK, Perform Group, and a local football club. We have a platform through our course where we post our articles, and I have video, mobile and radio content ready and even some old broadcast footage of me announcing live games.

Im not saying im a perfect candidate by any means I probably have less experience than a lot of other people, and i'm also probably a little too picky in regards to applying to jobs.  But it does seem that applying to US jobs while in the UK is a much bigger obstacle than I anticipated. Guess I'll just keep plugging away at it.

Check's ticket section .. it'll tell you the prices.

IIRC, besides the upper end-zone, all prices are not dramatically different.  What is very different is the required donations.  Uppers have none.   Lower corners are $150/seat, going up to $300 in the center.

Nope.  They sure do as others have alluded.

Just to finish the thought...lower level corners are $120, baseline sections $360, and center sections $700.

Actually the three center sections of the upper level on each side have a minimum donation of $110.

D-League MVP?  That's like the 451st man of the year award, aincha'

Seriously though, congrats to him.  I love Vander.  You're my boy, BLUE!!

Can he parlay this into a cup of coffee?  Maybe.  It couldn't hurt obviously.  IIRC, Buycks won MVP in the French league (and ASG MVP FWIW FTW) shortly before being signed by Toronto.

Also, you should open a LinkedIn account if you haven't already.

Ask PaintTouches if you can write some blog entries for them.  Then, you can put this on your resume.  It's not ESPN Fox Sports, but it's something.  Plus, potential employers can go to the site and actually read your work, e.g., your style, grammar, knowledge, etc.

Finally, I don't know UK academia all that well and don't know journalism at all, but shouldn't you have a director of graduate studies who can help place you into a job?  In many fields at many schools, employers will contact the director of graduate studies and ask something along the lines of "do you have any student/recent grad who would be interested in a position at our company doing XZ."

Finally finally, are there headhunters in journalism?  You should check.  Some time in the not too distant past I was working with a headhunter.  Many times they're very specialized, but it's worth checking out.

Finally finally finally, was your bachelors degree in journalism?  Were you a good student?  If so, you could shoot an e-mail to a professor at MU who remembers you (and likes you, i.e., you got an A in the class) and it could be that they know someone who is looking to hire.  Students undervalue the connections that their profs have.

Few more specific questions:

1. Im applying to jobs in the US, but my American phone SIM card is not active right now. I always say email is the best way to contact me but I was wondering if I should put down my American address instead of my UK one even though I dont have an active American phone number.

3. How do I at least get recruiters to at least reply to me, even if it is a no. So far the jobs that I have applied for dont have a specific person named for the hiring, so I have no idea who to contact to see if my application is still being considered.

1) Maybe register for a Skype account and put that on the top of the resume. But if I'm being perfectly honest, most recruiters will simply move on to the candidates that will be easier to screen.

3) This is the hardest part for me as a recruiter. Ideally, I'd like to be able to correspond with every candidate in a more timely manner. But in my case, I have 40-50 reqs and thousands of applicants between them. It's just not feasible to do, so as chili said, the letter goes out once it's filled. It sucks for the candidate, and I hate that it's gotten so impersonal, but it's the most efficient way.

Depending on the size of the company, you could always try LinkedIn to connect with a recruiter directly.
