And the Job Hunt Continues

I didn't get the job I interviewed for. Either of them. The first gave completely reasonable feedback: I interviewed well, but lacked key skills that other people who interviewed well had. I'm not going to argue that.

The second, I am happy to have not been offered, based solely on the feedback I was offered. I was told that my answers to two questions seemed vague and not related to the questions. One example was my answer to the question "Give an example of when you provided excellent customer service."

Except I was never asked that question. I was asked "Tell me about your customer service experience."

Those are not the same question. I expect to try to figure out what a user wants/needs from poor information, not a manager who's been in the job 17 years. If that was the kind of "leadership" I was going to experience had I been offered the job, I wouldn't have lasted 6 months.

Back to the hunt.

South Jersey, Valley Forge

Saturday's trip was to South Jersey because I knew it would be easy to hit the one million points milestone there. I got that fairly early in the day in Lawnside. After that, I went to the dead Burlington Center Mall. It surprised me how quiet the mall area is now since I remember this mall being moderately busy not so long ago. With no traffic in the parking areas though, it's gradually turning into a Munzee playground. Heavy rain in the afternoon put an end to the day's Munzee spree, but I stopped at the Asian food market in Cherry Hill for some goodies.

On Sunday, I went to Valley Forge National Historical Park. There were a bunch of virtual Munzees around the visitor center and the first stop along the park road but I also went inside to see the exhibits. It was fascinating. They have a number of display cases showing the gaming/entertainment items, cooking utensils, and General Duportail of the Revolutionary War era. It's interesting how some items, e.g. dice, cards, needles, and thimbles, are pretty basic and haven't changed much in over two centuries. There are also recreations of log cabin soldiers' quarters out along the park road. Those also show what the bunk beds and living space might have looked like inside. After that, I hit some Munzee clusters in Fort Washington, Dresher, and North Wales, and found a geocache in Franconia before dinner.

The munzees... )

So, last week was a challenge. >.> Messed up sleep, a cat-in-crisis (Lady) dropped in our lap, job hunt frustration, and a general lack of fucks to give led to me basically chucking everything out the window (everything I could chuck, anyhow) and playing video games. (Other than Overwatch, because that particular game is often the opposite of relaxing.)

However, I only let myself do that with the promise that I would be back to work on Monday and get things done that need to be done. So step one is: organize! Thus, the Too Much To Do List for the next two weeks:

  1. Do some kind of workout.

  2. Take a shower and get dressed.

  3. Issue six page nine

  4. Job applications

  5. Blacktigr commission

  6. Overwatch competitive stream/Mastering Mercy vid

  7. Mooncat Timey-Wimey badge

  8. LKCMSL Timey-Wimey badge

  9. Graveyard Greg IBMBA commish (NOTE: send bill for this)

  10. PTBAF panel agenda

  11. Print for AC: button restocks, Best Bodies Contest flyer, Timey-Wimey badges

  12. BtA YouTube banner

  13. BtA Patreon banner

  14. Read books for Rainbow Awards


Right ho. Time to get started.
