    Okay, I know this is a long shot. I've always had a desire to work at Fender, and there's finally a position posted for which I am highly qualified. I'd like to take some initiative beyond just submitting my resume online (which I've already done), so any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Maybe check out the fender forums?
    Or the telecaster forum?

    On the latter, I see Fender people posting sometimes.

    I think the genz Benz people are, they frequently post on amp section. Well not directly for fender. But genz Benz are bought over by fender

    I know Mike Eldred (?) who runs Fenders Custom Shop, used to be on thegearpage for guitarists. But apparently he was accused of secretly putting neck shims in instruments when no one was looking, and then denying it! The nerve! ;)

    Yes, some Fender folk do come onto TDPRI now and then.
