6. been there done that


laid off twice in 2009. The agony of waiting for a follow up makes the minutes tick off slower and slower. Hang in there, the job market is gradually getting better. Best of luck....

8. Be confident. Two examples (both involved feet)...

 

One of the Monkey guys (tall redhead) came in and threw his feet up on the desk for his interview. He got the job.

The girl who played Bette Middler's "young kid" character did the same thing and lit up a cigarette. She was six. I don't advise you to throw your feet up on the desk, but just have confidence. Be proud of what you've done and show self-confidence. That's what I always looked for when interviewing people.

On Edit: "Beaches"

9. Good luck!

Try to be confident...that is my biggest problem in interviews. Tell yourself that they would be lucky to have you.
