Nowhere To Go But Up

I have an interview with one of those professional job placement/staffing agencies later today.  I should probably go to bed instead of blogging.  But I'm also doing some more work on my novel, and I'm up anyway, so....

Anyway, I don't know what to expect at this intwerview.  Two years ago, when I was last unemployed, I want to one of them.  I interviewed on a Friday afternoon, took a couple of tests, proved that I'm at least reasonably proficient in Microsoft Excel, etc.  The guy I interviewed with told me I was a good candidate and that if I called him Monday, he had a couple of job leads and he'd refer me to them.

When I called back Monday and asked for him, the receptionist said, "Oh.  Sorry, he no longer works here."

I guess my experience can't be any worse than that.


  1. Only you could interview with the one person who either opted out or was released from employment!
    Today's experience can never top that one!
