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



Sorry, I wasn't trying to be judgemental.
I didn't think you were. I'm just trying to express this frustration.

I see myself as a drone, but an unwilling one -- I'm doing a job I'm not necessarily enthusiastic about, nor do I think it's necessarily worth doing. Mostly, my job is one with excellent working conditions and not a lot of hassle.

The job market in my locale is utterly wretched, as far as I can tell, and though I've been trying to find some remote work, it's a hard thing to do. That, added to my general lack of skills getting a job has landed me where I am. I'm not unhappy with it; I just think I could be programming, which would seem more important and more worthwhile.

So I feel a little defensive about the word 'drone'. My interview was a rather conservative one, and it got me in, and I feel a little defensive about that, too -- because I wasn't myself. I needed work. Sometimes the lowest common denominator is the best you can get.

You are what you think.
