Job Interview Butterflies

Day’s Verse:
He called out to them, “Friends, haven’t you any fish?”
“No,” they answered.
He said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish.

John 21:5-6

Ian has a job interview today at 10:00 with a company called StrataGen Systems. He had a good phone interview last week and today he gets to go to his first in-person interview since he started his job search. It’s a smaller company (but then, compared to Raytheon, Google, and Microsoft, everybody is smaller) that I’d never heard of, but a guy at church who works there passed Ian’s resume along and here we are.

I heard, I think on NPR but I’m not sure, that secondary connections like that tend to yield the best results for helping job searchers land a position. Let’s hope that’s true in this case. However it turns out, I’m in the extremely odd position of feeling nervous without even having to do anything nerve-wracking.

  1. sympathy nerves!

    I get those every time I see a play, whether I know anyone in the cast or not. Isn’t it strange to be nervous for someone else, even if they might not even be nervous?

  2. I used to get nervous before worship services at Fellowship when I worked there because they were so horrible.

    When playing video games I still get nervous when my character is walking near a really high edge.
