Oodles of desire, not so much experience.

Cheryl called me earlier this week with some discouraging news: she didn’t think her interview went well. She was taking a shot in the dark on a position with the county that she thought she would enjoy. It was a supervisory position with the court system, working as a kind of liaison between the court, drug treatment providers and the Department of Corrections. She has been working with the drug court in her capacity with the Department of Corrections for some time now, but she has no management experience. When two of the three questions they asked her concerned the management experience that she didn’t have, it was not a good sign. We’ve known it was a bit of a long shot, but it was still disappointing. Well, life goes on – even if it is at the same old job.
