So I injured my back 1 1/2 years ago and took a day job to replace the lost performance income. Well, now the company is relocating to Chattanooga, and I am going to have to find a new day job. Think of me... I've never had to go out a find a job. Even the current job came to me - my friend heard about the injury, had an open position and wha-lah! I've never sent out resumes or gone on job interviews. I'm really anxious about it...

As I am sure of my employment to the day I retire, I can only imagine how though that must be.

Sending some positive vibes...

Ciao for now

Good luck. Hope you find something suitable, perhaps you already have?

Depending on where you are, the job market can be really tough. I've been looking in my area of computer expertise for over a year now and occasionally find something that may work out, but so far, no job offers.

Perhaps your area is different or perhaps your area of expertise has more opportunities.

An interview is nothing more than a performance!

Look at it this way:

You need to have a logical begining, middle, and end to a performance, right?

Same thing in an interview...Be calm, be yourself, and don't panic....Introduce yourself, be considerate and listen when the interviewer speaks...Answer all his/her questions with UTTER honesty....Be genuine in your responses and just be the "Big Daddy Cool" we all know and love here and you'll do FINE, no matter what to position you are applying for....

Quote from who knows who:

Whether you are interviewing to be a ditch-digger or a CEO, dress smart, be on time, and comb your hair....

Bon Chance pal....Break a leg!
