Well, well, well...

We have got ourselves a student for the summer job at The Parish. We scheduled 5 interviews today, 1 cancelled 30 minutes before, one didn't come and 3 were interviewed. One will get a call tomorrow and will be very happy to hear the news. It was NOT a difficult choice. The Friendly Boss will call the 3 students to let them know our decision, if they have or don't have the job.

One of the student really lost points when she started to talk about one place where she send her resume, and named her and called her lots of ugly names. Seriously, it was hard not to roll my eyes at her. TFB said he will be telling her, as constructive criticism that it's not appropriate to act like this and that she needs to stop doing this during interviews that it's hurting her. He worked human resources, he knows what he's talking about. I mean, I know it's fucking inappropriate to do it but he'll be good at telling her gently.

I'm confident about the one we picked, absolutely confident in her capacities and the work she will do. It's going to make my job easier this summer. (TFB and I will be her supervisors and be there for her if she needs anything).

Other than that, we got some work done with The Tall Friend around 19h30 because we've got a big meeting with all of our employee and our volunteers tomorrow night.

I may be posting The Ugly Couch soon... I think I'll take pictures without The Friendly Boss in them. lol

So glad you were able to find a suitable student.

I can't wait to see the couch.

It was thoughtful of TFB to help that one student with her interviewing skills -- even though I bet she didn't enjoy hearing it. And I'm glad you're pleased with your final choice. Good thing the Ugly Couch didn't scare her off!
