The routine to the interview is the same. Get the notes right, double-check the resume you sent, match strengths to role description (in the odd chance that I got one), mental notes about the job, the industry and how I fit, get the suit right (and really the rotation is a little limited) and then the walk, the route and the cheery greeting.
The dance is the same. Steps. Beat. Grin. I don’t know what I’m doing sometimes and it feels like the job is about getting ready rather than working per se.
The shame is that it doesn’t feel real anymore but some pretend thing and everything is really about chance and not so much effort and fit.
