killing the job interview

Post by shadowplay » March 25th, 2015, 6:52 pm

tall drink of woman
laced with double barrel qualifications
stark lapel power heels
fluid gaze
major handshake
right between the eyes










cuz I have one

I'm up for another round, of course...

I did so like the elicit sound of 'laced with'...
as if to say you drink her in...
and she's laced with substances (like kick-ass quals)
that make you give her that kick-ass job

maybe my syntax is fucked up....this was meant to portray that SHE is the tall drink,
not that she slammed a drink..
...although, 'slammed' has possibilities....

I like sloe gin actually

the job interview has always held an element of tension...as we know, you never get a second chance at a first impression...dressing the part, potent eye connection...are all part of the deal...oh yes, and let's not overlook the handshake....

Thank you, Ton!!

yes, saw. thank you -- I popped this piece out after I was offered an appointment for a job interview next Monday. I'm jazzed. The only jobs I've ever interviewed for that didn't result in a job offer were for lame-ass jobs I didn't want anyway. I'm going to nail this one...cuz what shadow wants...shadow gets......

So good. If you have a job interview----I hope you get the job if you want it.

The poem is short and sweet----right between the eyes.

thank you, wireman, and theirishsea -- much appreciated that you read and commented

the job would give me a significant upgrade in pay, plus it sounds interesting and a little challenging
in any case, a great change from what I'm used to which is an aggravatingly easy job for shit pay
