At some point in the week, we all experience downtime. Maybe because a client needed to re-book, or maybe because our energy level is too low to tackle a high-level activity. This is the time I refer to as “having no brain left”. What do you do with this time., how do you make the best use of your time?
Recently a client was describing what she regarded as a very unsuccessful job interview “because the interviewer was at least 25 years younger than me and she had a poker face throughout the interview”. She concluded that ageism was present. We need to think about our approach when the interviewer is younger than you.
