I interview well
Oddly, people seem to like my personality when I interview. The job market out here sucks something awful so I have applied for every job that comes up that I fit and have put in my application with the placement agencies too. One agency has got me 3 interviews, 2 at Southwest Research Institute. The first was for shift work, they offered me the job but with the dh and his 12 hour shifts I can't do shift work. The second was at the inorganic place that I worked for 2 weeks and the commute was so bad I had to quit. The 3rd interview I had this morning. I was done at 11:20 and got a call from the placement agency at 11:40 with the job offer. This placement agency loves me, I've been offered every job they've sent me to. How odd is that? My recruiter spent like 10 minutes on the phone with me going on and on about how awesome I interview. I was terribly amused since I'm not the most warm fuzzy person in the world. I do, however, know how to schmooze in an interview without over doing it. Plus lets face it, it was a lab full of women. It was a gimmie!
