^^ Thanks for the explanation, Douglas. It's very interesting. I understood that you were responding to the flippant answers. But I was curious as to why you ask for current salary, which you answered. You imply that my giving an expected salary (or range) provides you with the same information. I'm fine giving that information, because it can be whatever I want. I'm not so comfortable giving you my actual current salary. A friend who recently took a federal...
Went to the Art Deco Society of Washington expo and sale this weekend. I saw exactly one cufflink that appealed to me. Note, I said one: it had no mate. Sad. b

If I got some of the flippant answers I've been reading in this thread, that individual would not get the job. I guess I'm a stupid interviewer. Oh well. I have a question: what if I refuse to tell you my current salary but will tell you what my salary expectations are for this...

In all seriousness, I wonder how many of experiences occurred when we were first on the job market. Mine was from basically my first interview post grad school. Since then it's been much easier. At the job I have now I really felt like they were selling me the job to get me to take it. So as you gain experience and fill out the CV/resume, do the dumb questions go away? b
Our office building lost power about 2 hours before I usually get off. By the time they figured out that it was a power problem (and not a fire as they first thought) they let us in to walk up the stairs, get our things, and leave. Yay. b
Went to the Friendship Height's Rack yesterday. Ugh. I found a couple pocket squares and a few cheap (both in price and construction) bow ties. The men's dept must take up about 10% of the floor space. It's probably not worth the trip. b
Fed employee so mine is public information 6 hrs/pay period which means...6*26 = 156 hrs/year, which is just shy of 20 days/year. In a couple more years I'll be at 8 hrs/pay period. That's annual leave. Then 3 hrs/pay period for sick leave. You can carry over 240 hours of annual leave and all of your sick leave. I usually have a balance of about 100 hours. I use my annual leave for vacations and doctor's appts etc. I try not to use my sick leave at all. If you...
