Was there ever a time you were being interviewed but didn’t realize it at the time?
Yes. When I was 22 I had a job waiting tables for a pizza restaurant. During the lunch rush one of the guests sitting at my table started asking me questions about what I was studying in school and what I wanted to do in a few years. Before she left, she offered me a job working at her doctor’s office making twice my income waiting tables!
