> Hi CS,
> The interviewer definitely lacked good habits as at one point he started reading an email. When he realized what he had done he said something like "sorry, I was reading an email from my sister." I just sat there. What's sad is that I was qualified for the job and up until that point he was very professional. I did not send a thank you note, though if I had it would have been via email and I would have entitled it "not from your sister, sorry."

I'm thinking that now is a perfect opportunity to reinvent Poet and how you value yourself. These bozos interviewing you aren't going to change any time soon! And while you're in between jobs, you can become - whomever you like. Now, my antique business I happened to fall into, and we're doing this part time (though less so at the moment because it's the "season" here and we're doing shows every weekend). But my point is - don't be confined to what you've put on your resume. Think outside of that box you've put Poet into. Is there a volunteer job you've been wanting to try, but haven't had the time? Maybe a hobby you've wanted to pick up, but couldn't devote the attention to it? Here's your chance to put the work stuff aside, if only for a short time, and do something that you (gasp) actually WANT to do.

Just a thought, that one. You just never know where it might lead, is all.

p.s. I'm glad I decided to post instead of staying under my rock today!
