This afternoon I went to two restaurants, one at Navy Pier and the other the downtown location of the Italian place I'd gone to yesterday. In both cases I got a "preliminary interview" with a manager, which I wasn't 100% ready for. That first one was pretty tense, with a lot of "what would you do ...?" questions and terms like "check building" that I'm not particularly familiar with. The second place wasn't "officially" doing applications, but I wasn't alone in being there for that. I think this interview went well, but I really don't know. The guy is (I think) looking for a regular day bartender, which wouldn't be the best thing money-wise, but could be good for getting my skills up. In both cases, the "regular manager" wasn't there, so the folks who interviewed me will have to be passing the info along, and then if they like me they'll call me in for a "real" interview (with, no doubt, some drink quizzes).
Oh, well. I was trying to connect with the Placement Office today (becuase I've not run out of "official" leads), but they never got back to me, so I may be taking all day tomorrow to tidy up stuff here (and get these damn business cards finished up). I'm having "issues" with my printers, so everything I'm doing graphic-wise I'm having to take back to The Wife's computer to print, which is a monolithic pain in the ass!
