My first interview for a salaried job after graduation was for the role of Word Magician at a software company. I knew nothing about computers, software, or what to expect from a company that had job titles like "Word Magician." The interview was in Madison, Wisconsin, and I drove to it with a friend who was also going to an interview at an engineering firm. We agreed that if we both received job offers, we'd ask to start a month out and then go to Ibiza for a couple weeks. In hindsight, I probably should never favorably compare myself to Shakespeare during an interview for a writing job. Neither of us were offered roles in the respective companies, and I still have never been to Ibiza.
