No woman, no interview
Of course after telling everybody I know about how excited I was about the prospective job in Washington I was not offered a face to face interview.
I did receive a lot of encouragement from the manager of the reference department I wanted to work for and she did recommend I apply for some jobs that are going to open this summer in their regional libraries. I guess it wasn't a total loss.
You know a job market is tight when the interviewers tell you how wonderful you interviewed and still tell you to stay home.
Man, I really wanted that job.
