good luck on your interview! Do not diss your current company, when they ask why you are looking...#1 mistake people make in interviews. Just say I appreciate the opportunity that they've given me and I do enjoy working there, it's just time for me to make a change as I feel I've done the most that I can there and I need to further my career... yes I'm a head hunter I give people lines like this all day!

On a totally different note, I saw that Craig Kelly Documentary last night here in NYC, "Let It Ride". See this movie, this movie is what First Descent tried to be. Narrated by James Hetfield, the soundtrack is awesome and not only does it chronical Craig's life, it tells the story of snowboarding and it's growth through him and his rise. This movie completely blew me away and I walked out just with a totally different view on everything. This guy gave up all the $ and fame to do what he loved which was back country, big mountain Powder riding. Some of the sickest footage of big mountain snowboarding you'll ever see. I am telling you when this DVD comes out you will need to own it no questions asked!

you didn't bootleg it for us??? lol, kidding. i'll wait for the dvd. damn nation's capital never gets those special screenings of indie films. all we get are scandals & crackhead politicians. and hookers. lots of hookers.

and thanks for the tip. i've actually got another route i plan to take...the desire to be back in the field of property management (leasing apartments) & the intent to become a property manager (so i can get a free apartment). so i'm hoping to leave this p.o.s. job completely out of the picture!

and on the topic of job interviews, i'd like to share a lil tip i learned some time ago...

when you are called in to interview, send them an email that same day (after the interview) telling them how well you thought the interview went, how grateful you are for the opportunity & how much you look forward to becoming a part of their TEAM (they love that word). you get the idea though...

it's a good tip...it stands you out from the rest of the people interviewed who didn't take the time to respond in such a way & shows your desire to work with them.

Morning! Ugh I haven't done any sort of physical activity since buying the house in July. Normally I climb all summer and with the heavy packs and long approaches, I get in great cardio and physical shape. This year not the case. Realizing backcountry touring and 4k vertical up and down days are around the corner, I went for a 4 mile run. Legs that are normally solid oak were more like chopped wood. The run that usually takes me 30 minutes was more like 45. Ugh, at least I know I can shave 15 minutes or more off the run. Getting old here, my legs hurt, but day two is Thursday. If I survive I'll report back Friday...

Oh yeah N~R~G good luck on the interview.

NRG, never been in a job interview... but i'd think leaving a thank you note would be better than an email. but whatever.

shiiiiiit killclimbz, i'd be more than happy with 45 minutes.. i'd be happy actually being able to run a mile, even with all this cardio i've been doing.. but my knees are also a problem, running KILLS them, i like my knees. i even notice hiking with a heavy pack they are getting messed up..

leaving a thank you note? nah, cuz that means you wrote the note before the interview actually took place. you could always mail the thank you note & they will get it after they've already hired someone else.

trust me, emailing a response to the interview is a good way of them remembering you. you've never been to a job interview, which means you've never worked in an office (or anywhere for that matter, other than maybe mcdonalds), which means you really don't understand how much we rely on our email (in the office). most people actually prefer to converse through email rather than the phone, as it gives them the opportunity to read it & respond to it at will when they have the time to do so. plus you'll be saving a tree by sending the note electronically.


take my advice when the time comes. or not, but i'm telling you it's a good lil bit of info to know. i've actually had interviewers tell me (after they hired me) that my emailed response set me apart from the others.
