Interview Prep

So I'm driving to L**** today for the job interview. Any good vibes would be most appreciated. Please pray that I will either

a) get the job
b) get the job with a surprise $10,000 pay raise because they just like me that much
c) be offered the job but have the good sense to run if they're going to turn out to be axe murderers who lull attractive would-be librarians into their facilities on false pretences

I've been going over interview questions to prepare myself. Here's what I have so far.

Q: How much supervision have you typically received in your previous jobs?
A: Not much in the beginning, but then more and more as time went on.

Q: What would you say are areas needing improvement?
A: Hygeine. And reading skills.

Q: What is the most important thing you are looking for in a job?
A: Lots of down-time for blogging. And it probably wouldn't be wise to have me interacting with the public much.

Q: What things give you the greatest satisfaction at work?
A: Quiet acts of insubordination.

Q: What approach do you take to get your people together to establish a common approach to a problem?
A: Beatings. Much beatings.

Q: What motivated you to seek a library degree?
A: I was sick of working full-time, and as a librarian I would get summers off.

Q: What kind of books do you read?
A: Mormon historical romance. And the scriptures. I think that's all you need, really.

I pretty much have this thing in the bag.

Dude, I don't see why they wouldn't hire you with those responses. I'm sure you're head and shoulders above the competition :)

Good Luck!

I'd say you're in good shape. But you forgot,

"What is your ideal boss like?"

"British. And dreamy. Like Hugh Laurie or Mr. Bean. Someone I wouldn't mind staying late for. At work I mean."

Hey, my job meets all your requirement!!! You want to be a part time support specialist for CES!!! Good money, summers off, I even get to watch TV as long as it's the BYU channel, and I can eat whenever I want and have personal calls on my cell phone to family and friends. What more could anyone want? Apply now!

Also, Regis Philpin really shouldn't try to sing Christmas songs.

This advice probably comes too late but...for books you should have broadened your answer.

I would suggest BOM for non-fiction and religion. Tennis Shoes for the Nephites for children's. And for fiction, The Work & the Glory all 25 volumes (autographed of course. You may have messed up girl.
