Good Company

This week I was accepted into a new pilot program sponsored by the state Department of Labor to help professionals network and hone job-hunting skills. Today was my first meeting, and I have to say it was well worth it. We practiced interviewing today, which was fascinating. Most of the people in the group are more experienced than I am (plus they've had a few more weeks of the program than I have), and were quite impressive in their interviews. I learned quite a bit and, having gone last, was able to apply some of it to turn in a decent performance of my own.

The others were a bit intimidating, though. There was some impressive credentials and experience in that group. I'm no slouch, but I was the youngest and least-experienced of the bunch. I look forward to learning more from them as time goes on.
