Most of the activities we do in life are group efforts, But ie toughest experiences always seemed to be the ones we ave to go through alone. So it was with interviewing and getting a job. You alone 'ere the one who had to answer the questions. You were the ne who had to impress that executive vice president sitting cross the desk from you. No one else but you could go trough the interviewing process. And not just interviewing, but getting motivated to put 0 the bun! Jgether a resume and send out letters to get those inter- iews was something no one else could do for you, either. After experiencing the joys and pains of job hunting first nd, we all felt like experts when it came to informing hers about this monumentous task and the many trials and :elings to be anticipated. First was obviously the motivation factor. Once you ealized that your days on the ACU campus were numbered, ou knew you had to start looking for a job. How long could you put this off? Forever, if you were itistied with the thought of standing in the unemployment ne every week of your life and coming up with a different accuse for the welfare people every month. But most of us were probably not excited by the thought f doing that for the rest of our lives. Maybe for a few years, jut not really forever. So we were back to square one: how D deal with the inevitable feeling of procrastination and lecome motivated to put together a resume. l We never had any previous problems convincing people low great we were. Why did this project seem so hideous? llaybe it was the thought of having to put our real weight lown under "Personal Data." Or maybe it was the fear of aving to list that not-so-hot GPA. 1 After having waded through that mess, we were still faced ith the prospect of having to sit through an interview. The ought of that dreaded inquisition was enough to make us udclet. What would we say if the flawlessly-dressed man behind the desk asked our name? Should we give it to him? Would we be able to remember it? If we were able to endure that torture, we actually had a shot at the job. Not a day passed that we didn't run to our boxes to check the mail, or drop by Mrs. Scott's placement office in Zellner to give her an update. Finally, we received word: rejection. How could we tell Mom and Dad? How could we face Mrs. Scott? Surely there had been some mistake.

But, then, maybe when we told the interviewer that we thought no less than 530,000 a year was a fair salary, we were kind of pushing things. And then when we proceeded to kiss his shoes and promise that we would be the best little worker he had ever hired, we went a little overboard. Oh well, there wasn't much we could do about it now. Guess we would just have to try again. Again? Oh no!
