The Job Applicant

A quick verse in response to today’s 2023 April PAD Challenge.:
“Some folks are nervous; others have some nerve; still others seem to get on everyone’s nerves. For today’s prompt, write a nerve poem.”

The Job Applicant

HR officer interviews
another hopeful applicant.
Articulate, poised,
twisting a bracelet.
Dressed to the nines;
nails bitten to the quick.

  1. This is so accurate. 🙂 I had to teach my business students to look for work and we did some mock interviews. It was great when career services relieved me of that. It was difficult for my students to do a mock interview seriously with their classmates and me.
