So yesterday I had an interview with a theater for an Assistant Manager position. It's full time and salaried. I'm torn about whether I should hope to get the job or not. On the one hand, it's my field, and I need a job. On the other, a dozen years of retail have made me hate the public. I've always hated meeting people I don't know, but my acting skills were good enough to fake it. Now, it's almost like I can't be bothered anymore. That will not do in a customer service job.
I'll just try and remember how much I like having minions...and a paycheck.
So I signed up for a Facebook account so that I could see some pictures that my brother had posted there and found not only that some of my friends from college, 4 of my 6 siblings, and 5 of my nieces had accounts, but ALSO that there was a cool game called FarmVille, to which I am now addicted.
So if any of you all play FV, please let me know, because I only have 2 neighbors, and you can only get all the really cool trees and animals as "gifts" from other farmers....
Well, after all this time I finally have a job interview!* Ironically, after all the interviewing I have done of prospective employees, I am a little nervous about being on the other side of the desk, since it's been over six years since I was last out of work. There are the BIG questions:
Should I wear slacks or finally go back to shaving my legs?
Black shoes or brown? and can I even find them?
Hair long and straight, or sedately confined?
What IS the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow?
I'll try and let you know how it goes....
*I'm not counting the "open interview" at the national video chain since it was more like a pie-eating contest than a job interview. Boy, did I waste my makeup that day. But I digress...
UPDATE: I followed my reader's suggestions and went with the skirt (and shaved legs!) and upswept hair and I think the interview went pretty well. The good news: they have twenty positions. The bad news: they aren't actually hiring until after Labor Day.
