I experienced something totally new for me this week...the telephone interview. Now, normally, I fall apart during interviews. I just get sooo nervous. I babble like an idiot and my body language is all wrong. I've been to approximately fifty interviews in the past few years that have led to exactly zero job offers.
This one, on the other hand, went swimmingly. What was scheduled as a half hour interview turned into an hour and a half conversation. I was relaxed and actually enjoyed myself.
The secret? I was knitting the entire time!
