Second interview, same venue ...

New secretary? Beware the double application form. Since you filled out the first one ...

IF you have to go through that again, for instance, she hands you a form which you've already filled out, ask to see the first one and say "I have some information to add to it". IF it is the actual record (which is what you want really) ... take it and proceed to your seat to "fill it out/alter it".

Spill coffee on it and smudge chocolate bar (if you have one; consider THIS tip a warning). Go back and explain the problem and ask for a brand new application form.

Chances are you've got your original now plus a new form ... head for the in-door.

Leave. Run past security. Exit building.

Technically, you haven't been rejected and you've, for all intents and purposes, added to the list of things you've done, snatched your personal information from the talons of a bird who file-pads for a living and is now failing at her job. AND you can now deal with rejection and have something positive to think about ... why rejection can be so sweet!

(Practically a true story)Cool | :cool:
