Interviewing for jobs reminds me of something else I don't like...oh, yes, DATING.
You get dressed up and go out and put on your best face and try to answer questions pleasantly and intelligently.
You find yourself saying things you didn't know you were going to say.
You wonder if this could ever work.
You wonder what they are thinking about you.
You wonder if you should have had that third cup of coffee and if you are talking waaaay too much.
You wonder if they are psychos underneath it all.
You wonder if you sound like a complete idiot.
You leave feeling that it went ok. Kind of. Better than ok.
Then you wait for a call back.
You count days, try to figure out if they will ever call.
You wonder what you say if they do call.
You hear someone else got called.
You wonder: Why them? Why not me? Am I that bad? The other person is really better than me? Has someone been spreading rumors about me?
You think: I didn't want to see them again anyway.
Then you do it all again.
