The Phrase of the Day…

…is DAM, as in Day After Molly.

Yup, she’s off Christmas shopping today and getting a massage and getting ready for the new gig, which starts Monday.

Me? I’m here, plugging away — at least on the blog.

The office is empty, but hopefully not for long. I’m actually conducting my first interview today. Then have five more scheduled for next week, as well as a pile of at least 15 people I still have to decide if I want to talk to or not.

At some point, I’ll give you a glimpse into some of the people that have applied for this job — which is titled Publicist.

My two favorites so far are an archaeologist and a phlebotomist. I kid you not.

And, perhaps my most favorite thing in the world is finding typos on resumes and cover letters. And, people, how do you not submit a cover letter? How is that even possible?

It’s almost impossible to say, but there is one benefit to Molly leaving — no more space heater in the office! It’s just a male/female temperature thing. And today is nice and cool. So, hey, I got that going for me.

What else? I got nothin’.

    Ahh Mr. Jennings,
    Just head down to the tavern if you get a bit of a chill, i am sure you can find lots of company down there as well! good luck with the phlebotomist!

    It’s really freaking hot in our office today. Today is my boss’ last day. I’m pretty glum.

  3. Stephanie says:

    I don’t even know what a phlebotomist IS! Will you be interviewing said phlebotomist?

  4. La says:

    The word phlebotomist sounds incredibly more sexy than it actually is.

  5. Molly says:

    Oh boo space heater hoo.

  6. Oh boy! phlebotomist would suck you dry! hahaha! it is going to be hard to fill Molly’s fashionable shoes! Perhaps I will over for a lunch? to keep you company!!

    I have to say I’m really glad I don’t work on Fridays—because it would feel really empty today.

    But I think it will be a pretty great scene when you start parading the phlembotomists through. Can’t wait.

    We’d be good office mates. I’m always hot…..and I just walked right into that one, didn’t I?

    When you manage a team in a call center, you meet quite a few people when interviewing.

    One person that can be met is a woman, pretty big, smoker (you can smell it), and their resume includes work done on a 900# line.

    I kid you not.

    Here’s to hoping that won’t happen to you also.

    Scratch that.

    Here’s to hoping that you DO get a resume with that type of information.
