Thursday was a marathon day in the Kristi Berry Job Search, which incidentally is as futile as the Kristi Berry Marrying Michael Fassbender Mission, but I do fight the good fight. My second interview of the day was promising, right up to the description of my computer skills. I basically listed everything you can do on a computer and made it clear that, like any child of my generation, I am savvy and comfortable.
Then my interviewer asked an innocuous question that stopped me dead in my tracks. For the briefest (and simultaneously longest) moment, I sat agape like a deer in headlights. “And do you use PC or Mac?” I could almost palpably feel the whole thing about to crash down around me. For a second I considered lying, but panicked and just said: “P…C…………” and maybe grimaced a bit.
“Cool, that’s what we use.”
WELL THANKS FOR THE SMALL HEART ATTACK!
That said, I did a second phone interview for them on Friday and am waiting to hear back. Wish me luck!
