Interviewing for a job: The stress

I have been at my company (high tech industry in Silicon Valley) for over 10 years. Though it has been a great 10 years, some 'downs' but mostly 'ups', I am feeling like it is time to go to find the next challenge. So I am ready to 'move on' to something new. I really have been looking to make a move for the last 16 months. Talking to people, getting referrals, and interviewing. These interviews are crazy, I feel like I should be on a psychiatrist's couch on some of them. I remember one job

4 days in Vegas = 12 days (i.e. 1 dog year = 7 human years)

So, I'm in Vegas for work ( I work for a tech company based in Silicon Valley). We have 2 or 3 events a year in Vegas. Since 'home office' is the trend in the USA, we hardly ever see co-workers, and when we do...we bond. So, 1 day in Vegas = 3 days. First, you are in all day sessions from 8am - 6pm. Then, you are in team dinners from 6:30 - 10:00....than, (and you can wimp out), you are bonding with other friends from 10:00pm - 3:00am. Than you start again. This isn't meant to be a whin

In any event, great day, it was the ProAm part of the Schwab Cup, not the tournament itself. Tickets were reasonable ($20US), and a hot dog (aka 'tube steak'), bottle of water, and

TF and me....

It's only been a day or two should I joined TF, and I must admit, this is the best board I've ever belonged. That may because it has a select number of people, and since most are Thai or Thaiophiles, they have good hearts and are interested in making friends. Look forward to meeting more and more people. That's my interest. As I do, I will include some pics of where I am (usually San Francisco) and what I am doing. จะดี Sam
