Greetings all! I have a couple of questions that I hope some of you fellow Disney nuts out there might be able to help me with. A little background info first. I went to a military academy and graduated in 05. Recently, I have returned from a deployment to Afghanistan where I had the honor of leading some of the greatest soldiers in the world.
Since I have been back I have made the move to CA and now I want to start my civilian life. I am really interested in Disney but I don't know how to get my foot in the door. I have applied for many different positions online at disneycareers.com but it seems to be a really slow process. I am interested in either Consumer Products or Theme Park operations, marketing and business planning. I am proactive and I have been trying to get job information interviews but the only answer I get when I ask to speak to someone in HR is that "all of our positions are listed online." It is a really cool tool but it does not provide a lot of information required to make an informed decision. I plan on going for my MBA soon and I must decide on what to specialize on.
Disney has always held a special place in my heart and if I could be a part of the magic for some other kid, wheter that kid is only a kid at heart, then I would consider myself lucky. My fiancee and I are some of the biggest Disney nuts you will ever find. We plan on getting married at Disney World sometime late next year. I also understand that Disney is a business but it is a people busines and I am a people person. I have applied for other jobs in the L.A. area but in my heart of hearts I know I would be happiest working at Disney. Any information anyone could provide or any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
