And so it goes.

Last week I interviewed for an IT position in a local school district. I did everything right: I was dressed professionally, showed up 15 minutes early, had two extra copies of my resume *and* references with me, answered all the questions perfectly, asked relevant questions of my own, remembered and used the interviewers' names, and generally gave a kick-ass interview. The next day I got the call: they'd decided to go with another candidate.

This week I had a phone interview for a help desk position at a finance company. It started poorly and went from bad to worse: they asked me one technical question after another that I didn't know the answer to, and when it was my turn to ask questions I asked dumb questions. Worst interview I've given in a long time.

And I just got the call from the recruiter: I start work next week.
