WOW - That was an interesting experience and one I learned a bit about myself from.

The first thing I learned is that I'm not half as good in the interview process as I thought I was.

On my own turf and from the other side of the desk, I'm really good.

As the interviewee, I totally botched just about everything this gal asked me. I was really, really bad.

I'm a bit pissed off at myself for that and not going to let it get the best of me. Now it's like a challenge to me. I found something that I suck at and can't wait to try it again to see if I can do it better.

The other thing I learned about myself is just how important these flight benefits are to me.

The only position they had available was a reservations agent. 40 hours a week at $8.21 an hour with a crazy schedule, and I still went through the interview process knowing that.

Honestly, now that I've had time to think about it, I'm really glad that I didn't get the job.

I just wish it had been my choice and not theirs.


Movin on to the next one.
