I have to put on my game face with every call and every communication with a prospective employer. This is the same with search, seek and submit for any possible employment situation. I feel confident with my contributions, qualifications and credentials. There are those who want to seek out the skeletons and we all have those. Situations that you had no control over, that were part of the human psyche to perform or not to perform.
With the several conversations I have had with prospective employers, the conversations are geared towards the product, problems and process of the radio station. This is great, maybe we are past the inane interview questions like, what's your favorite color? and where do you see yourself in five years?
I have had some as detailed as several calls to gain trust and as little as "going through the motions of the employment process". The network of support on social networks is important. Communicating with a network of job seekers helps you feel connected to the human race. There are people in the same place as you. Good luck in your seach and let me know how I can help?
