another job interview today. this time on Skype. there i was, blathering away these incoherent meandering answers, only to find when I eventually stopped blathering that the audio had cut out and my interviewers had not heard a single thing i said. perhaps that is the blessing in disguise I have been seeking.
i also learned that if you are running your laptop off the battery instead of A/C power, when the screensaver kicks on, the video camera turns off. thus deflecting my fears of how I might appear to my interviewers…
after which I spent the next 12 hours trying to compose the most tactful, damage controlling thank you emails to the members of the search committee.
if I can spend the remainder of my life perfecting the art of the thank you note, what more can one hope for? in case you are questioning me, i am being completely sincere.
i swear it.
