Just got off the phone with the recruiter for the anonymous company I mentioned in the previous post. I hope I didn't sound like a desperate unemployed person. I tend to be casual and friendly when I talk with people for the first time, and I talk too much. I hope that's not a bad thing when speaking with prospective employers. With me, what you see, or in this case, what you hear, is what you get. I don't say or do anything I don't believe or can't back up and I believe that the more you know about me the better decisions you can make. It's all about you, Baby!
Sometimes I wish I had a "Professional" switch that I could flip so I sounded more, I don't know, "hireable" to a firm. But at this point I would have difficulty maintaining that image for more than a few minutes. The company I worked for over the last 11 years was very casual. I suppose I'll need to develop a professional, or formal, persona for the legal world. Development of that will take some time, however, because I have to be comfortable with it. I hope the lack of one doesn't hurt me know.
Well, it is what it is. I'll let you know later if it turns out that they haven't already shredded my resume.
