What I am bad at...

I did a practice interview on the phone yesteray. It went pretty well, but it served to emphasize one of my weaknesses. I'm not too comfortable bragging. And apparently, I need to get really good at it. I've got some work to do.

It's not bragging if it is true. You can emphasize the good things you have done without any guilt of conscience.

Key: Being able to apply your past actions to a broad category of questions.

I have some books on behavioral interviewing that may be useful to you. These are written to train the interviewer on how to administer a solid interview and how to interpret the subject's answers. All you have to do is come to Columbus for a nice vacation by my pool.

or, i guess i could mail them to you :-)

Columbus is SO far away. I am working on emphasizingg the positive. Hiring conference in a couple weeks in Atlanta. Looks like it could be fun:) 8 interviews in one day. I will be smoked by the end of it.
