Goalie, are you coming to the restaurant with Mu and I?  The one with the awesome drinks and the no reservations?  (Beretta?)


I want to! Should we make an actual plan plan?

OMG I still have not done any work. Someone shoot me. I think it's because I can't stop playing with my phone.

And Wally, the point is that you don't know anything. That's why you are meeting with him. So he can tell you about it. It's not an interview, where you're expected to know something about it or be able to say why you want to do it.

Which, if I had an interview tomorrow (*cough*) I would totally be prepared to do, right? Obviously!

Yikes.

<----so not prepared

A sample question is "so, what does a litigator representing trade unions actually do?" That sounds like a cool job, actually....

All shoes count, natch.

Awww, poor parents!  I didn't know you had Nebraska roots . . . are they in [Mu town]?

Nope.  OCI this week, school after labor day.  Kill me now.  You?

Yeah, it seems like a cool firm/lawyer.  He's worked on an interesting racial profiling/airline case, too, and something with retirees claiming benefits.  I'll definitely ask him about it.

Thanks, guys.  Goaliechica: good luck with the interview.

::notes the striking similarities between her boat and Goalie's::

Also, my friend has some sort of ap that makes his iPhone into a light saber.  Apparently Lucasfilms yoinked it superquickly, so it's all rare.  ::confunded by iPhones::

And I think we should!

I'll need it.  :D

I have a top choice, then after that it's all by city, not firm, which I'm sure is not what Career Services would recommend.

"Why do you want to work for Yadda, Yadda, Yadda & Blah?"
"I don't."
"What?"
"Look, I just want to be in Miss P town/Goalie town/Cady town/living at home with my parents for free.  Getting paid for it is just bonus."

Heh. Yeah. Mine is "because I hear you are very friendly towards public interest split summers!"

I've been informed that I will not be saying this in first round interviews. Apparently.

I really like my suit! So that's a good thing. I need to get pantyhose before 9 am tomorrow, though. Ugh.

I'm going with business separates 'til I find a suit I can commit to.  Disappointing?

(I kind of wish they would just let me interview in a dress and a cardi/cute jacket - that's what I'd be working in, so they really ought to get used to it now.)
