  1. Didn't get dream job :( I talked too much, was the feedback- which is fair; I DO talk, a lot, especially when nervous. Need to learn to be concise. Succint.
    Plus side, the job went to someone I know, who's really lovely and I'm thrilled for her.
    And, in the spirit of self-improvement, that is all I shall say.

    Oh, Alliandra!
    How thoughtful of you to be pleased for the person who did get the job.
    and look on the Flowers . . . thread for your consolation bouquet.

    That's bad bad bad for you, Alli.
    Try practicising being structured - think "I shall make only 3 points. First, second, third".
    Easier to do that than to say to yourself "I shall be concise".
    Best wishes
