Through absolutely no fault of my own, I found myself out of work last July. And from that day to this, I've been pounding the pavements. It's been an interesting experience. What have I learned?

I have learned that job interviews are really really really fun!

Someone from Human Resources will gladly give you their total attention. And, after they are finished making you feel all wanted and meaningful and at ease, they may even offer you a job!
