The Job Interview that took a turn for the Worse
What has to happen in a job interview, to officially rank it as an Interview FAIL? My friend walked out of an interview this week feeling terrible. She felt she had bombed the whole thing. She was a bit down in the dumps, so I tried to cheer her up by telling her about a time I too had an unfortunate interview. Some people share wisdom - some share insight or compassion. My gift is a life full of examples of how things can always be worse. But that's another post.....
I nervously arrived at work the next Monday, thinking of ways to appologize without making things worse. I was going to have to work with a manager I had insulted but I had worried for nothing. It was a woman who greeted me and announced I was to begin training in a different department. Shocker.
