Good Luck... Get ready for the question... "Where do you see yourself in 5 years from now?" Also to remind you to be careful what you say in social media because Your Next Employer will be looking for you everywhere they can find you. So be on your best behavior for a few days.

Im good in every way it counts

Suggest you go to your interview sober....😉 Good luck and hope one lands a job!

I am sober, I have to go to work tomorrow, I think I need to get drunk.
Good luck with the interviews. Keeping a job is so hard these days, both of my kids have lost theirs in past 3 months. daughter started a new one before her last day on the old one, but both are only part time, son got a payout so he is ok for a while. life isn't easy.

Best of luck in your new work, whatever that is! Like I have said many times...ever so often you must reinvent yourself. I guess it's your turn...

Medical field. Im not cut out for anything else.

@rebel_lion are you happy and feel fullfilled...with this career? If so, are you adding in other interest, so that you want feel trapped or limited?

@Freedompath i love the medical field more than anything

There's no better time for drinking than after losing a job. Bottom's up!

Good luck!

I'm drunk and have to go to work tomorrow. Good luck with your interviews.

Good luck too

Cheers. Best wishes

Thank you

@rebel_lion your welcome

I always try to think of the question I DON'T want them to ask. And what my answer is to that question.

2

Good luck with the interviews ... ?

The final ? was a typo - intended !

Walk into those interviews like you are the boss...when they start to ask you questions, you just shoosh them! Bring a clipboard, glance over it...eyeball them for a minute, maybe with a bit of the ol' fisheye! Then make your demands. If they try to interrupt, you tell them there will be time for questions after they agree to your terms and you have given the job a 3 day, NAY, ONE WEEK 'feels' test. If the job has good 'feels', you will agree to let them hire you on a long term basis. BAM! Done and done! Now, pass me some of that vino...I'm a regular tony robbins over here...

2

Choose the new job well...I'm in the same boat without the interview but I have only sent out one resume for a dream job I'm sure will be overflowing with younger candidates...

I can be apathetic about it without drinking...and with the realization there is an excess of jobs available.

Anyway, you're in good company...I'm "respondent 20"...sober up for your interviews!

2

Hey, have fun getting drunk. I'm sure you'll nail your interviews. Are you thinking about AI in general or as a career path?

In general. Waxing philosophical, lol

And I take it religion is not a career path either, lol.

Thank you all so much for the good vibes and encouragement! Yesterdays interview went great and I have 2 more tomorrow!
***I would also like to add since some people brought it up...no, im not an alcoholic nor have a drinking problem. I drink maybe 3-4 times a YEAR ????

I hate interviews, so I don't envy you. I would probably drink, too. I'm hoping you are way better at interviewing than I am. You must have a great resume if you already have three interviews! I wish you the best of luck!

Losing a job is tough! I hope your next problem is deciding which job to accept!

You know they monitor social media. 🙂,

Thats why i don't use my real name 😉

We may not know each other yet but I wish you all the luck! Every interview you get better and better at it, until they have to hire you no matter what! =)

Plenty of jobs out there just try and be patient you'll find something soon.

I used to show up for work so loaded they made me take the freight elevator.
When the last company tried to fire me, I sent a letter explaining that I wasn't looking for work termination at this point, but would be happy to consider them for a later date.

Oh and our thoughts and prayers are with you!

Did you watch Person of Interest? That is my total knowledge of AI. Unless you mean Allen Iverson. Killer crossover.

Watched altered carbon. But a lot of shows hsve addressed uploading humsn consciousness into AI. Im fascinated
