I interviewed a guy a couple weeks ago. He did great on the interview, but as we were leaving the office, he asked me where he could score an 8 ball.

My Dad told me long ago that if your hitch hiking its like an interveiw. you will be judged in the first 3 seconds that a person lays eyes on you. if your neat and clean and don't have shit hanging out of your pockets then you'll be ok and someone will pick you up. its very true about dressing for sucess.

I couldn't believe some of the grammatical errors and lack of experience I saw on resumes I helped review for a 57K a year position.
