In a weak moment, (shall we call it the thrill of the venator?) I applied for a position for which I don’t technically have all of the skills they want. Even stranger, this company decided to interview me, so now I’m faced with a situation in which I need to balance the need to be truthful, yet focus on the skills I do have, without straying into vaniloquence. As I’m not naturally volable in a stressful situation, I expect to come out of the interview feeling like I’ve been vapulated. At least it’s only a phone interview!
