. . . And Another Word, or Four Words, on Interviewing
Last week we had yet another mini-lecture from our Career Services rep on interviewing for jobs.

We got the usual sage advice: Show up on time, have your knives ready if they want to test you, don’t ask about vacation.
And then we got four words of advice that I truly and deeply hope is mostly specific to the chef industry in San Francisco (though I know it isn’t):
“Don’t show up high.”
