Re: Job Interview Panic
Well that didn't take long. Had a short preliminary discussion with the folks looking for a writer. It didn't take long for me to X them off the list. They failed the interview almost immediately.
The reason? I don't want to drive 40 minutes to an office every day. I realize that sounds petty, because most people do that, and I did that myself for a lot of years. But for the last 5+ years, I did not. I home officed and went to a company office only as necessary. And now, that's a must for me. I need to be able to work virtually because I refuse to spend an hour and a half a day in traffic again. Nope, just won't do it. Only for the most fabulous job on the planet where fame and fortune are guaranteed. Maybe.
It's part of my balance of life mission. I just refuse to sit in traffic, burn gas at $3 a gallon and become yet another road rager out there. Not if I don't have to. And in the age of the internet, where locations matter not, I shouldn't have to.
