I found out that I’d be interviewing for the “job” for a date with Kendra’s mom on a basketball court–and I’ve always stunk at basketball! I had put in my vote with the producer for ideally the beach shot and, secondly, the barbecue shot…but got hoops!
Called a friend who put me in a right frame of mind: it’s who I’m BEING a lot more than what I’m doing. This relates so well to the real world of job interviews.
Though the basic skills for a job are necessary, it’s that “chemistry” thing that carries so much of the weight. Moral of the story: be in your most amenable and confident disposition for interviews, even if not in your element or ideal “environment.” As the old saying goes: People will forget what you say, and they’ll forget what you do…but they’ll never forget how you make them FEEL.
