in reply to (OT) Number 1 mistake to not avoid during an interview

Greetings, sfink!

Where should I send my resume?

I agree with you that I would like to see some enthusiasm and excitement about the project my team will be developing or maintaining.

I am a trainer by trade and tend to be boisterous by nature. I would think you will find someone who has some emotion and is not afraid to show it. Unfortunately, they may have received advice or counseling that leads them otherwise.

Is it clear to the applicant that "9 out of 10 people who see this cannot contain their enthusiasm"? Do they realize that team members on this project must "demonstrate constant facination with the end result"?

It is easy for me to say that RIGHT NOW, I would be happily enthusiastic about working on a project like yours, but I have a job. If I were without employment and trying to support a family, I might be very careful (and thus reserved) in my approach to potential employers.

Good luck in finding someone!
