It's about chest hair....

just ask any woman interviewer.
so chest hair = good or bad?

I'm trying to decide if I should run home and change into one of my disco shirts

Re: dressed in the dark.

It won't help you today, but get a Sockscription.

Blacksocks

They used to just have black socks, so no room for error. Now they have a few different colors (grey, brown, and one version in blue). Sign up for the black, throw out all your present socks, and voila, you can't mess up.

Re: dressed in the dark.

Sorry, I shouldn't laugh, but this had me in stitches.

If your cleaning lady is no longer young, please don't blame her. I, too, can only distinguish 'darkish' colours from one another in broad daylight by the window. I, too, have a drawer full of 'pairs' of navy blue/black pairs of socks and I choose between my black/navy blue trousers and jackets purely by the feel of the material.

I read your text out to Mr L and as soon as I reached the 'deep comfortable chair' he burst out laughing. He, too, knows the hazards.

Hope the interview went well.

Re: dressed in the dark.

*phew*

if I NEVER have to go thru that process again I will be happy.

6 random strangers on the panel firing questions at me...

"name three advantages of using us over them?"

"name three process improvements you have instigated?"

"what is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?"

Re: dressed in the dark.

Now that went quick. Was it close to where you live? How do you feel about it?

Re: dressed in the dark.

Speaking of embarrassing wardrobe malfunctions, I was walking along Bahnhofstrasse yesterday when I realized that my newly purchased tights had slipped down dangerously almost exposing my behind. I was wearing a miniskirt, thankfully accompanied by a longer jacket. I had to readjust the tights constantly and I think I must have flashed some poor person at some point.

1. I only buy black socks. 2. I'll buy head-lamp so that I can check the colour of all other articles of clothing without waking Mrs. G. 3. In future I won't tell everyone on EF what I've done unless it shows everyone how brilliant I am, because if anything has gone wrong the rotters laugh at me.

Re: dressed in the dark.

It was in "in-house" interview... I only had to go down the hall*, and I was in with the panel for about 45 minutes.

How did it go?, I think well, but I know there area a number of internal candidates for the post.






* down the hall in reality = down the hall, up two flights, across the sky bridge, down one long corridor, wait in the main lobby and up three floors

Tell them both socks were blue when you left home but one impact of the major solar flare that arrived today was to cause one sock to change colour; you were happy to get off so lightly

Re: dressed in the dark.

At least it's over, but did you 'sock it to 'em' with your answers?

Fingers (and toes) crossed for a good outcome.

as above... who knows... I think so...

but get this... one guy on the panel actually snorted/laughed when I mentioned I was from Boston. ( in reply to the "tell us about yourself" question )

I didn't think Boston was THAT funny.
