Group interviews are a special brand of terrible. There is no great way to distinguish yourself without sounding like a complete asshole. Everyone is clearly in competition with each other and it’s all the worst parts of any reality competition. Forget empty collegial chatter, no one is here to make friends.
I had the pleasure to discuss music with one of my favorite people in the world, our own Sara Habein. We know how much I love lists and rankings, and it seems that having a discussion about music and adding rankings to things is right up my alley. I had so much fun having a little […]
Tawna Fenske is hilarious. She’s the author I want to hang out with while drinking wine, swapping dirty jokes and digging our toes in the sand.
Stacey Ballis: the author who enlightened me that authors are nice people!
I hate interviews. Unfortunately, as I recently learned firsthand, getting the job can take as many as five or six of them. For me, that was an incredibly stressful experience. Luckily, I know some helpful people and I am a Google Ninja Warrior.

Cesy and bookgal recently had the ridiculously good fortune to interview one of their heroines, Helen Zaltzman.
I happened to open up my TED app one morning and saw a talk called “If I should have a daughter.” I clicked on it, thinking it might be interesting and twenty minutes, two spoken word performances, and one life story later, I was a sobbing mess who had a new idol: Sarah Kay.
Continuing our discussion from last week, we’re taking a look at the way potential employers can improve their hiring processes: ensuring they get the top quality candidates for their position, and that potential hires can maximize their search time and receive the same courtesy they are expected to exhibit.
