Nothing helps you ace your next interviews like bombing.

Mourn it and think about what you can do better for next time

I cried dramatically and called my friends. Everyone has their own way of dealing with grief. Don’t beat yourself up too much.

It's all about not repeating the same mistakes. I haven't bombed but have been overlooked because I was honest about not doing things in the job description. There's always a better job out there, get back into it after a few days of well deserved rest.

I answer only what's asked and won't over share. if it's something completely different than my resume I'd be honest

To me, cooking is just a life skill not a gender role? And pretend play is just that. Am I wrong and has anyone experienced this?
