    Good Afternoon,

    3 weeks ago, I interviewed for a job in Corporate America. I sat in front on 3 women, all were younger than I, but only 1 was asking questions. Interestingly, as I showed them some of the documents I’d printed from their website and asked questions relative thereto, it was as though I was watching 3 “bobble heads”. This is how they responded to my answers. Then I was asked, “How do you feel about micro-management?”. (Among the questions that I was going to ask was, “what is your management style?”) Admittedly, I attribute this question to their inexperience and/or youth. Nevertheless, whatever my response, seemingly it was favorable, because they nodded again. However, I’ve yet to hear anything to date.
