    When you get laid off, immediately apply to get unemployment and search for another job.

    This sort of stuff is really bad form and drives me nuts. I had a housemate who started going along these lines for control. Not sure what type. You can't be selective when it comes to integrity. It probably correlates better with dishonesty and narcissism than MBTi or management.

    On the topic: I haven't been anywhere that has had big lay-offs yet, so not sure how I'd deal with them. Personally it wouldn't worry me a lot because I'd find a new job, but I'd be feeling for the others who went and it mattered to.

Theater was your minor in college, was it not? On that account, why is it the case that you do not enjoy interviews because they give you an opportunity to function as an actor?
    I don't like to mix fantasy and reality. When on stage everyone knows I'm an actor. When I'm in an interview I think the interviewer knows on some level that all the candidates are full of crap, but on some level they want to believe that they're not. It's sort of like politics in that sense.

    I love the theatre of a job interview. It is like a blind date.

    I think you can get away with being honest in an interview. The more I look at all this stuff, the more it seems that an honest transaction is best for both parties. I don't want them to hire me under false pretences because the job will be crap for me, and they want to know if they have the right person for the job.

    I agree with you, but sometimes being honest in a job interview, i.e. "I love Excel!!" depends on how close your bank account is to $0.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    Yep, when in need the marketing steps in . Though I seem to be able to keep it within truth. Obviously things like "your business is a sham and I'm just working for you because I need money" wouldn't need to come up in any interview. So selective truth.

    Ooooh! Agreed!
    I get a hard on whenever I have a job interview.
    I love the questions...

    "What is your best trait?"
    I have a die hard positive attitude and am very persistent. I have always been able to produce exceptional work with the time and resources available.

    "What is your worst trait?"
    Historically my worst trait was being a perfectionist, but I have learned to mitigate that via finishing a deliverable with a quick but thorough forward pass and then re-visiting it with the remaining time before submitting it for review.

    "Is there anything else you wish to tell us before we conclude this interview?"Yes. I think the project you are getting ready to embark on will benefit from my related prior experiences while affording me a chance to learn a few new things. I've always managed to apply the bulk of my career experience to my current endeavors. Tell me what you need done and when you need it, and I will give you something that you can work with, guaranteed. Thank you for your time; it was a pleasure meeting you. Feel free to call me if you wish to talk further or review additional samples of my work. It would great to work with you and to help your organziation make this project a success. Have a great day!

    You don't need to lie during an interview when you're already a potentially awesome employee
