This is a question Not Getting the Job

Muns asks - Did you blag your way through a job interview, only to be caught out? Is your photography portfolio full of other peoples work? Did your potential employers google your name, before offering you a lucrative contract and discover something from your past you would rather forget? How did you fail to get the job?

A few years later
In Aberdeen, having started working in the, for me, unlikely role of IT sales.

"Why should we buy these terminals from you?"

"Well, there are a lot of cowboy outfits out there trying to sell you stuff and they don't even understand what they are selling"

"I happen to admire cowboys"

This is when my brain engaged and I clicked the Texan drawl, the cowboy boots on the desk and the Stetson tipped back on this oil driller's head.

I'll get my coat....

Well I happen to admire shepherds, but I wouldn't hire one to design and build a theatre.
(Unless it was Edward Shepherd.)
