During my twenties, I went through a career phase when I packed in dozens of job interviews in the manner of a serial dater. Much of it was purely for entertainment or to satisfy some burgeoning curiosity about the goings-on in my industry, as I was fairly happy in the company where I was working. To me, though, interviewing compared with the exhilaration of a first date. The intrigue of meeting someone for the first time! The nerves combined with the need to impress! The thrill of the power dynamic!
While some may find my diversion quite sad, I did pick up a few useful tips along the way—and one very high risk strategy that I believe may have something to do with why I was offered every job I interviewed for at the time.
