I had a HUGE slice of lemon cake for my last birthday, actually... with coconut frosting! *happily noms on virtual lemon cake*
Work SS from a couple of days ago: Job candidate sends in her resume. She looks good, so we call her for an interview. She's from out of state, so we offer to do a Skype interview--which we've done, quite successfully, before. She doesn't have Skype, so she suggests an in-person interview... OK, none of this is SS, so far...
But THEN she insists on being PAID for the interview! Um, not happening. My employer is a mom-and-pop company, not a Fortune 500 company with the budget to pay interviewees' travel expenses.
