Bait and Switch, Agency Style

Well, I went for it. Took the online assesments, filled out forms, went to a pre-interview, followed by a real interview. I even had a cheat sheet of questions that I might be asked to prepare. I was told to make sure that I could cite specific examples that demonstrated what the questions asked. This... Read more »

I tend to be somewhat irreverent and possibly a bit sarcastic, although not always intended to be so. I am camera phobic, which is why I elected to have the innocent and adorable puppy repesent me for the moment. For many years, I have been the family photographer, because if I am taking the pictures, I am not in them. Didn't realize that there are no recent pictures, other than the DMV disaster. So Cute Puppy will be representative of my playful nature. Feel free to drop me a line:
