Helpful Hints

Dear Job Applicant,

Generally speaking, it is best not to get onto the floor and do supine pelvic thrusts during any portion of the interview process.

Yeah, uhhhh, that really happened yesterday. And yet people wonder why I want to bang my head against the wall (without denting my tiara, of course)??

Dear Other Job Applicant,

When writing a post-interview thank you note to your potential employers, it is best to refrain from making disparaging remarks about the current employees in an effort to explain how much better you are than they. This is especially true when those employees in question are internationally known for what it is they do. You might also consider not stating that you won't take no for an answer and will continue to apply for the position should you not be selected *cough*stalker*cough*. Instead, you should just leave it at "Thank you so much for the opportunity, I look forward to hearing from you."

Your Pal,

The Cranky Princess

We actually make potential employees do that... Why? Is it wrong???

My boss says we should all be flexible.
