I had another interview today. I actually held this company in high enough regard that I pulled out a "lucky" tie - it's not *particularly* lucky per se, but I do wear it to a lot of interviews, most notably my first interview with Aimnet where I got the job on the spot back in 1995, thus beginning my stellar career in Internet...umm...whatever it was I did back then. I find it's a good introduction into the world of my ties. Of course, of the five people I talked to today, NONE wore ties, so we'll see if they can handle me blatantly violating their unspoken dress code or not. Apparently they've been interviewing people for the position for MONTHS, so can I really be what they've been waiting for? And if so, how scary is THAT?

This tie is part of the "International Collection - woven in U.S.A. - JCPenney" and has a lovely Liberty Bell logo on the tag. Unfortunately, any mention of fabrics was either on a separate tag that has been lost forever, or was and is a COMPLETE MYSTERY. OOOOOOOOOOOH

This is pretty bland by CRZ standards. This shouldn't have made you stand out much at all. I am sure all of your other attributes will carry the day, though!

They need a hyper-color version of that tie so one can play Q*Bert on it.

That's so funny; I have (or at least had - it's been a while) the exact same tie, from the looks of that pic. And I always called it the "Q*Bert tie".



What do Russo, Raven, Kurt Angle and Johnny V have in common? Not much, but see ACTUAL LETTERS sent to them in the latest Inside The Ropes!!!

So which resume did you give 'em? The one that has the headlining objective that you are "looking for a position where I can be awesome"? or the one that won't have hiring managers pissing themselves laughing at you?

=)

Gotcha. I'm baaaack. And you owe me lunch.

Funny you should mention that...I happened to notice the copy of my resume which the consulting company FAXed over - they had flat out REMOVED that particular career objective.

The exact phrase in question is actually "position whereby I am paid to be awesome," anyway. ;-) Who *doesn't* want that?

I was going to say "I'll email you about lunch when one of your recruiters calls me," but since that might NEVER happen, look for my email.

CRZ, I realize you have just about the best karaoke place in the world to go to with the selection of songs you post, but have you ever had the pleasure of doing Live Band Karaoke? There's a bar here in Louisville that does it (I've never been)
