    ...and I'm on this site? Where are my priorities?

    Seriously though, Rusty Shackleford would sign his own name to a document if it would get him this job. (Hopefully someone out there gets that joke...)

    You got this, Rusty.

    Just let this visual run through your head, repeatedly.

    What do you think this is Singles? Its Shawn Kemp, not Griffey Jr.

    Seriously, good luck. With respect to when I interview and when I interview others,

    1. Have no doubt that you can fulfill the requirements and exceed them

    2. Remember this is a two way street, make them explain why its a good place for you to work. You don't want to go somewhere then leave shortly thereafter because the place sucked or it was not a good fit. You are a wanted commodity, make them sell you as well. Doing this will put you in the 1% of potentials and make you memorable.

    Good luck Rusty.
  8. It's Xavier McDaniel, not Shawn Kemp.


    (but, the sentiment is the same - Go get 'em Rusty)

    Go, get 'em Rusty.

    Remember to prepare for that question along the lines of "What don't you do well?"

    I was still answering that while they were ushering me out the door.

    Maybe you could just hit the highlights.

    And don't forget about the inevitable gotcha question that only an employer with a liberal agenda would ask: "What do you read?"

    Avoid saying "Everything" and then failing to name even a single thing.

    Good luck. Drop that unemployment rate!
