Coming from someone that has conducted interviews for applicants before:
Interviewing can be a pain in the ass, but you gotta play the game:
This might be the only chance you have demonstrate in person that you are qualified for the job, so make sure you try to demonstrate the qualities that would be in useful in the job role you are applying for in the interview. Off the top of my head, a customer service rep would need to be patient, friendly, social, helpful.
-Make sure you do some research on the company that is interviewing you. It's not uncommon for them to ask you what you know about the company or why you applied for the job. -Come prepared with a list of questions you have for the interviewer, about the job / company - to show that you interested in the job, and are ready and willing to start learning immediately.
Have answers ready at least for the following very generic questions. Practice answering them beforehand. 1. Why do you want the job? Sounds kind of basic, but this is actually one of the most common ways that I see people getting crossed off the list of applicants. It's pretty important and having an answer ready that sounds genuine makes a big difference. 2. Why are you cut out for the job, and what qualities do you possess that would make you succeed? 3. What past experience do you have, if any, that would help you in your role should you accept the job? If you don't have any prior experience, just be honest, or try to draw an anecdote from your past that you can use to make a connection to the job. 4. How soon would you be able to start? 5. What are your expectations for your role?
Also probably just do some general googling of interviewing techniques that I might have forgotten, smile, make eye contact etc.
Let's explore the concepts of wizard hats a bit deeper. What is your position on the sorting hat? I think that Hogwarts probably had a head lice problem since every student in the school had to try on the sorting hat at one point. I'm sure that there was at least one student that tried to pass on the sorting hat when offered because of this, and this totally gets swept under the rug in both the books and the movies. It would be the kid that had at least on hypochondriac parent, although in this case, the parent's fear of the sorting hat would be justified. I wonder what Dumbledore would do in that situation. Maybe he just defaulted them to Hufflepuff. In both the books and in the movies, there is no mention of any wizard on standby that performs a magical disinfecting spell on the hat every time one student places the hat on their head, so I think it's safe to assume that the worry that the sorting hat was a health violation is very real. And before one of you points out the fact that once a student gets head lice, it would probably be easy for a wizard to eliminate with a some special spell, let me point out that the psychological drama has already occurred to the student, due to the negligence of Hogwart's staff. When I was in grade school, nobody wanted to get head lice. It was embarrassing. Imagine if Malfoy found out about that - your social life would be over.
This is kind off topic but this kind of reminded me of the book American Gods by Neil Gaiman. I imagine someone else on here must have read it because its a pretty popular book, but for those who have not, it's a neat take on aging mythology versus modernism. I could imagine one of the characters in that book wearing a hat like that.
Nabe has his very own 'Wheel of Orifices' that he gives a spin every time he can't decide where he wants to put it in. We never know if the wheel is weighted, or if it is actually God's will, but it always seems to land on 'ear'. Personally though, I do not condone this behavior. If I stumbled in my walk with Christ today, then Nabe has made a full on face plant. But give the man a break, you try walking more than five feet with a 12 inch kraken riding shotgun and not getting tangled up every once in a while.
Yes, I have stumbled with my walk with Christ, but it was not my fault, for when I was not looking, Christ stuck his leg out and tried to trip me.
I'll end this post with a passage that I think speaks strongly in our reflection today.
"The Lord makes firm the steps of the one who delights in him; though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with his hand. I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread. They are always generous and lend freely; their children will be a blessing."
"Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean."
These are some good talking points and I'd like to continue this argument as long as we agree to abide by a code of stringent logical fallacy checks during this debate. Jesus preached that we should 'love thy neighbor'. What if thy neighbor is gay? And aren't we defined by what we do? So if I act big and gay, then I am in essence becoming my actions, and therefore I am wrong in your eyes. Loving something that is wrong is impossible, a contradiction. Allow me to explain; we can only love what is pure, lest we redefine the construction of the concept of love. Love can't be reconstructed, because God constructed love, and therefore his act of construction is permanent and everlasting. This is infallible logic and remains indisputable, you can look it up if you don't believe me ("Logos", pg 227, line 4). This presents an interesting quandary for your position that you love homosexuals, although you hate the act of homosexuality.
You call us a pit of vipers, but the only viper that I see is YOU.
Oh, almost forgot guys. Many of you guys had questions about the character Guy Targaryen during the game:
I am not one to leave questions unanswered so...
Epilogue: The Last Council Member
Wiping a single tear from his eye, Guy Targaryen looked back at his former home, the Red Keep, one last time. He knew that as long as Euron Greyjoy sat the Iron Throne, his life would never be safe. He was a Targaryen, the blood of the dragon, and a threat to the Greyjoy claim. Assassins would tail him for the rest of his days, as long as fire ran in his blood, coursing through his veins like hot chili pepper sauce. Guy still had nightmares about the fateful day that he had watched Euron murder all the friends that he made during his days on the council. He looked back fondly on Night 1, when he had shared leftovers from the kitchen with That 1 Guy. It was all over now, things would never be the same. He would never cook a meal in the Red Keep again. Early in adulthood, Guy found that ruling left a foul taste in his mouth, and renounced his claim to the Throne in favor of his younger brother, Rhaegar. But Rhaegar was dead now, and his younger siblings had fled far to the east. No, there was only one Targaryen left that could stand up to the murderous scum occupying his families former home. Regardless of his personal desires, his people needed him, like pigeon pie needs a dollop of cream. Guy stared down at the skull-sized egg in his hands. It felt warm to the touch. As delicious as it would be, this was one egg that he would not cook over-easy. Soon, he thought, his own dragon would hatch, and he could start training it on his mission of vengeance. He would return to the Red Keep, he swore, not by horse, or by boat, but by wings of his dragon, like a bat out of hell's kitchen. He would rain down fiery hell on Cirt and Teto, and would not cease until their bodies were as crispy and charred as the world's most overcooked steak. He would have his revenge,
