Job Hunting B&A

BEFORE the career fair: jobless.

AFTER the career fair: jobless. Not that I expect to walk out of a Career fair with a job, but more importantly it's due to a minor detail: it's actually not until NEXT Wednesday. So, I printed out my resumes, dusted off my suits (literally!) wore tight shoes, put on makeup, filled up with gas and drove down to the event. . a week early. And now I've got my button on my pants undone, my shoes kicked off, my knee highs have slouched and are bunching ankle low, my hair is tousled and my makeup worn off. It really is a different sight to behold from the confident woman that left her house this morning.

7 tips left at the bar:

Oh dear. This B&A will be much more amusing after a few glasses of wine?

Miss Thystle said...

Just think of today as practice! You worked out all the nerves and you'll knock them dead. Next week.

Megan said...

Oh shit, that stinks! At least now you know that a) the shoes are or are not too tight and that b) maybe you should buy some new stockings. And then next week you will be totally set!

Where's the after picture of you in your suit with a glass of wine? :)

sheila said...

Oops! That totally sounds like something I would do (or have done). Hopefully there is a glass of wine going down nicely while you sit with tousled hair & bare feet!

Next week you will impress the hell out of them, I just know it!

niki said...
