I have been conducting interviews for a week and a half now. If Iím lucky I will be finished by Thursday. At one point today I was ready to start hitting my head against the desk in the middle of an interview. The person being interviewed didnít even have a clue as to the position they applied for. I almost yelled at the individual to get out of the room, fortunately I had momentary control over my mouth and just smiled.

No, this person is not getting the job. Sadly enough, they weren't the worst one either. Even worse, they scored in the top 20 percent of candidates interviewed.

If Iím lucky I will be done by Thursday. If it goes any longer I think I might lobotomize myself mid-interview with my pencil.

Could you set up the web-cam, just in case? OH, and if the pencil doesn't work out, we'll appreciate the entertainment of the interviews.

Damn - I have a friend who lives out here, who desperately needs a job. Not only that, but she really is smart. I wish you all were out here. *sigh*

In the meantime - sorry I giggled there for a moment. But honestly... not to know the job you're applying for - holy crap!
