Last week I was once again reminded just how similar a job interview is to a first date.
Think about it: You put on your best clothes, and check your hair (if you have it) obsessively before the meeting. It’s all about making a good impression, right?
It can be a little awkward as you sit across the desk or dinner table from this person; you don’t always know what to say, or how to answer their questions. Those dreaded uncomfortable silences!
You look over at them as you talk and wonder if you’ll be seeing them again, or if this is a one-time thing.
A few days pass, and you wonder if they’ll call you, or if you should take the initiative to call them.
Finally you decide you'd better call, and you find out they have no interest in seeing you again. And you thought things had gone so well!
Anyway, wish me luck.
