I'm taking it very seriously, I'm stoked right now. When I got the call from the bro this morning asking me if I had free time to come in tomorrow morning to talk with him I got a boner and **** my pants at the same time. I hope everything goes well. I got some new duds and my head on straight.

If I do get the job, it means moving to the bay area. It's in Mill Valley, a few minutes north of the Golden Gate. Anybody need a roomy? No smoke, no pets, only half homo.

Hmm i take it referring to the guy as sir instead of dude or brah is a good idea too? Or would you call him by name? First name if thats the only one he gives you or what?

I plan on calling him by his first name and avoiding calling him by any titles. For some reason "Thank you very much for _____" sounds better to me than "Thank you very much Sir for ______" I can be much more professional and punctual in real life. I just gay it up for you bros, comes with the Miata territory.

You just need to punch the interviewer square in the mouth.

Khakis???? To an interview? WTF. Also what is OCBD? And nobody wears blue blazers except for college kids who didn't go to Ivy league schools.

I hire and fire and here are my recommendations.

You're interviewing for a bitch role so skip all familiarities. Be formal, super polite, and respectful. Call him Mr. XYZ and sir. If I was interviewing some dumbass 20 year old with no experience you had better bet he had better display some fukin respect before I hire him and give him the chance to make a buck. Do not act like you are above doing anything that they ask you to do. Do not bootlick because it's pandering and annoying. Dispose of all thoughts that you are hot **** at all in any way because you aren't. When I interview someone arrogant they will suffer. Unless they actually are hot ****, which you aren't. There are many other people interviewing for the job too. Some are probably actually qualified. Some are probably overqualified. Unless you have some serious connection, you probably won't get the job. Act like you are asking some ****** ******* dad for the hand of his perfect ten daughter who he wants to keep for himself and like he has the shotgun in his hand.

All that said, best of luck.

Went good. He liked me, thought I was funny. I was very respectable, but he was super easy to talk with. Turned it from a nervous experience into an enjoyable one. We talked about basic car stuff, and being punctual and dealing with rich snobby client base.
Should I write him a thank you email or letter? Any follow up advice?

I may be late to the party, but please remember to pronounce the "e" at the end of Porsche. It matters.

ALWAYS write thank yous.

and if you want the job, reiterate your eagerness and maybe toss out a ponit you particularly enjoyed about the interview. like this:

Quote:
Dear Bob Noberson,

Thank you again for taking the time to sit down with me and discuss a career at Douchebag Enterprises. I really enjoyed seeing the inner workings of the company and learning about how you fondle secretaries under their desks. I think I could learn a lot from your expertise.

I want to express my sincere interest in taking on a position at Douchebag and becoming part of the team. I think I can offer a great perspective on fondling and really apply my skills with your secretaries.

Kind regards, (Don't thank him again duh)

Dolan Duck.
And then if you don't hear back within a couple days, call him and check in to see how the search is going and re-state your interest in secretarial fondlage.

I typed up a thank you since my hand writing is atrocious. I kept it pretty short and sweet, I didn't want to write him a novel. I'll keep you fellas updated.

He pronounced it "por-sch", not "por-scha" so I followed his lead.

Ya I vote drop off a typed/printed thank you note at the dealership for him. Put it in an envelope. Give it to the front desk clerk for him. Drop it off early next week. Dress up as much as you did for the interview. Just in case you see him.
