In my job, I ask, and am asked a zillion questions every day. As one who poses questions, I realize how challenging it can be to ask the question you actually want answered! I have no issue whatsoever requesting a questioner clarify their question or, asking them if they want to know XXXXX. If I don't know the answer, I will always (especially at work) admit I don't know the answer or respond...."I believe the answer is blah-blah." If I don't want to answer a question, I will say so. This can be tricky in a business setting, but I can almost always point to "banking regulations" as the reason.....and it usually is the reason.
This topic is prompted by how blazerman's third interview went for his gig, when he had it on Monday. He was asked a question related to finance and he had no idea how to answer it and told the interviewer he did not know the answer. (Finance is not his forte.) When blazerman later repeated the question to me, I told him I had no idea how to answer the question as it didn't make any sense! (Finance is sadly what I deal with all day.) Blazerman thinks I am just trying to make him feel better, but really, the question didn't make any sense.
85 minutes of pool running. I found an EVEN SMALLER belt to wear in the pool which made me work much harder while "running". It is hard to get my heart rate up significantly doing this stuff, but it was definitely up today. I am exhausted. I switched up the type of smoothie I made the boy this morning and since it was so tasty, I made one for myself. Banana, skim milk and vanilla protein powder.
Blather: The boy has an interview this afternoon. It is to be a cameraman at our the Event Center in our city.....minor league hockey games, concerts of used-to-be-big-bands (like 38 Special, Loverboy) and Disney on Ice type of stuff. When I asked him how he was dressing, if he had his resume and if he was prepared for certain questions, he rolled his eyes at me saying....."I have taken a class on how to interview for a job, so I know what I am doing."
Bonus: Converse All Stars.....no way I can wear heels with my calf-thing and dress flats annoy me. The only client I am meeting with today is also a marathoner, so he will understand.
