Weekend Coffee Share

wordswag_15073188796611453091488Weekend Coffee Share is a time for us to take a break out of our lives and enjoy some time catching up with friends (old and new)!

I’d tell you that I’m recovering a cold, which started on Thursday and completely derailed me on Friday. Since getting back in town, I’ve mainly caught up on work.

On Thursday I helped interview candidates to teach for the JET Program in Japan. I’ve done this every year that I can for the last few years and I like seeing candidates excited to go overseas, but I always come away wishing people had used specifics to demonstrate their strengths  and in one case had come on time. One candidate just had 10 minutes because she went back to her car to get something. Determining whether someone can successfully live and work in another country takes longer than 10 minutes. As great as her paperwork looked, missing so much time can’t be overlooked.

Wednesday a partner and I recruited for the Census at a Jewish social service agency in Northbrook. We had a good turnout and it was good to see that people who’re sure to make good workers but have been out of work a while apply. I love giving opportunities to people like this.

Yesterday was the last night for Restaurant Week. A friend and I went to Wildfire where I savored their Cesar salad, petit filet mignon, au gratin potatoes and chocolate cream pie.
