Will work for food..........
Then there is the interview process. My first interview was with a staffing company who told me there would be a test. I thought, no problem. After finishing in about three hours, the smart mouthed little receptionist said, "It was only supposed to take about forty five minutes to an hour!" I just wanted to slap her silly! I've had to try really hard to be on my best behavior during this process!.....hoping not to do or say anything stupid.....knowing that unrehearsed words may escape my mouth, and the spirit of my mother may come over me!
Sadly, I’ve already been horrified by my spur of the moment stupidity when a possible employer said she would shake my hand but she’d been coughing. I ever so stupidly said, “Okay…air shake!” and stuck my hand out in a pretend hand shake! As I left her office, all I could say to my self was, “Air shake????……..AIR SHAKE!!!!” What am I …...a twelve year old!
While I could blog a whole story about each interesting and memorable interview I’ve had so far, I will refrain.….in fear that somehow the very place that wants to hire me, won’t …..because they read my blog. I’m just sayin……………..
