Your story contains some good advice both on how to stand out in an interview, and on what kind of attitude to have to be able to cope with the difficulties that come up.
Maybe what is most amazing is that her skills turned out to match her enthusiasm. I'm sure a lot of people who seem good at the interview turn out to only have a good façade to cover their inadequacies?
For myself, I like the work I do but do not do well in interviews because I do not have the confidence or social skills.
I miss being able to read the discussion of the editorials. I guess when everyone is working from home they don't have time to read and respond?
Thanks for your contribution.
