What Not to do in a Job Interview

Sometimes things just aren’t meant to be. I went to a job interview and sent out yet another resume today. While I was sitting in the interview, I noticed that my resume seemed very full, much more than the two pages it consisted of. I knew immediately what I had done. When I was running for tax collector about 1 ½ years ago, I had made notes after the resume to forward to my campaign manager. Apparently, I had never deleted them. So you know all those questions that employers can’t ask like how old you are, if you are married, or if you had children, all of those questions were right in front of them. Needless to say, I had to send a retraction email to both.

Then to top it off in the retraction email that I send to the employer I emailed today, I hit the wrong button on the computer and “corrected” my middle initial from “M.” to “ME.” I really, really am not this inept, but I’m thinking that I can count both of those jobs goodbye. Oppps.

I'm so sorry. You are so funny the way you tell it though, I couldn't help but laugh.

I am hoping that this means that these jobs were just not meant to be, but I fear that it was just a dumb mistake.
