I’m just throwing up a quick post here as an indication that I am indeed still alive. This is an oldie – Guardian Careers posted about awkward interview moments back in October. This may or may not be topical for many, but the absolute inundation I’m currently experiencing from vulturous recruiters (sorry, recruiters) would suggest that perhaps many people are considering a career move at the moment; maybe it’s interview season?

The first tweet they published is me, you may notice. I did in fact go in for a hug with the interviewer. I’m just not naturally a boundaries person. I’m a hugger. It happens. I don’t think it had any effect on the interview. Who doesn’t like a good hug?!
