|Me getting ready for my first job interview.|
I always feel you can tell better from a pic
than from a mirror how you look?
I know I am strange.

Second job interview, just soooo not me. It was for a concierge company that caters to the upper echelon, a very niche (pronounced neeesh) market of the upper crust, ages 25-35, so sorry if you are 36 nope, non entre s'il vous plait. Within five seconds of me walking in to the interview everyone in this very open office had sized up what I was wearing, more specifically what trends and brands I was supporting. I felt like I was on some E! reality show. They peppered me with questions of my knowledge of luxury goods, how well traveled I was, how great I was at sucking up to super rich people, how much I love going to the most fab restaurant, and infamous clubs (if you know me, you know this is NOT me). They also wanted to quiz me on their company, I had done some research enough but not enough to pass this test:
THEM: Do you know how many members we have?
ME: I do not know how many members you specifically have but I know the different levels of membership, there is the general...
THEM (interrupting): We look down on selling the general membership, we really do not do that here, very passe
ME: Okay, and then there is the dedicated membership level, and the elite. So I do know that, but no I am sorry I do not know how many members you have in your club. How many is it?
THEM: (Laughing) We cannot tell you that! There are people that work for us that do not even know that.
ME: (Confused, ready to leave)
Yepp that is how it all went down. At the end I asked directions to the metro, which is a five minute walk and literally 1/3 the price of a cab. They looked at each other and struggled to point me in the right direction. I guess the metro is passe as well. My final question for them, which I just kept to myself, how do you afford lux goods and the most fabulous lifestyle on a salary of $38,000 a year?
