I learnt a valuable lesson about dating through job interviews. It's the
calmness and confidence you have when you realize that it's as much of
an interview for your potential employer/date as it is for you.
Demand that they woo you, and make an informed choice before signing on the dotted line.
Go out and be headhunted.
