That is all.
No, that is not all. I hate behavioral interview questions. Why is it that I have a million examples of situations I can use for them and then when the conversation starts, they immediately vacate my head? Pretty sure I just blew my interview because I could not think of a good example of a time I came up with a creative solution to a problem and used something totally inane. Repeat: I COULD NOT THINK OF A TIME I DEVISED A CREATIVE SOLUTION. ALL I DO IS DEVISE CREATIVE SOLUTIONS. BLAAAARRRRRGGGGGGHHH.
Tell me about a time when you destroyed a previously-smooth-sailing interview for a job you’d be great at because you forgot to write down a list of situations to discuss.
Last month I met the person I want to be when I grow up. Can I please just go work for him? (Note: this is not the company I just completely turned off.)
costume expertise from my friend Tara
Um, one of my badges is for “Best Hot Fudge Brownie.”
that I momentarily forgot about the glorious activity known as “hailing a cab.”. Like, my friend had to remind me that this was a mode of transportation. Boston tonight, Portland tomorrow.
THAT LOOKS DELICIOUS AND I WANT IT IN MY MOUTH
That’s… what… she… said.
Living Single is every bit as good as I remember.
But it’s Halloween! (Disclosure: I’ve done the risky business costume and enjoyed wearing no pants and actual tighty-whitey briefs in public. But perhaps I have an exhibitionist streak.)
I’m a total attention whore but this costume puts a little too much emphasis on the whore part. I’m still going to wear it, obvs, but I need to figure out how to do so in a way that is appropriate for the Net Impact Conference, which is where I’ll be Halloween weekend. Something tells me Britney Spears antics are not the way to snag a do-gooder boyfriend.
I think I might have to wear leggings underneath. I look like I’m wearing green polyester lingerie. And yet somehow it’s actually kind of hot.
It is, like, inappropriately short. I have to wear something underneath but I cannot figure out what.
Yes, and I totally agree that that cat should have left the cigarette at home.
I tried Googling to no avail. The hold down home button/hit on/off button thing isn’t working.
I guess I better brush up on my OWS ish.
I am working with a professor on a project about Occupy Wall Street and am looking to assemble a list of links — I’m particularly interested in perspectives from POC . I am absolutely aware that this could be a LMGTFY situation — but I assure you, I am doing my own research; I just want to make sure that I have a variety of perspectives and that I don’t miss smaller blogs because the big ones have better SEO rankings (also if you haven’t noticed, the Tumblr search function is terrible). So I’m crowdsourcing, and I’m really sorry if this comes across as “lazy ally can’t do her own research.”
What are some of the best posts you’ve seen (or written!) on the subject?
At the same time, the amount of anxiety I face every time I think about going back to NYC suggests that I really need to seriously consider refocusing my job search on another city. Unfortunately the amount of FOMO I experienced this summer when my besties from school were in New York means I probably won’t. Also my likely industry focus.
I booked my flight to Portland next Wednesday out of LaGuardia.
