@Monty Boyce Re: Selling yourself

I'm a person who dislikes arrogance in all it's forms. Post graduation, I did the whole "take ages to find a job" thing. Getting myself into spirit of job interviews involved getting into the habit of pushing my qualities into job-interviewer's faces. Eventually, I got a job, but thanks to the brain-fuck I gave myself trying to do well in interviews, this state of mind persisted past the signing of the contract, and even spilled over when I went down to the pub with my shiny new work-colleagues. I ended up boasting about my abilities to the point that the others thought I was some kind of an egomaniac. I had become the type of person I hate! Fortunately, I grew out of it, but what a first-impression to make.
