Subject: Thank you
Thank you so much for participating in our show. I hope you had fun doing it. Unfortunately Kendra did not choose you for the final date with her mom. But she did enjoy your company 🙂
Oh well, all is fair in love and interviewing, right?
Folks, there are SO MANY parallels between dating and job search it’s ridiculous! The moral of the story here: stick your neck out, get “on the court” (even if it’s outside your comfort zone), and just focus on meeting people. The requirements for the jobs will always be there, but it’s those personal connections where you will either “click” or “flick” to the next possibility. Just stay in the game and be making connections! You never know where they will lead.
Who knows: I might get round 2 with “mom” or, perhaps, this will prepare me in some way for my own reality show I want to get on the air soon!
