Word of the Day: entrevista de trabajo
Translation: job interview
Pronunciation: en-tray-vees-sta day traw-baw-ho

The job interview! Do you tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth? What about the firm looking to hire? Do they? What is everybody hiding under the table? And what about those want ads? What does “…dedicated team player…” – something everybody seems to want – really mean? What if everybody just told the truth?

For instance, all applications ask about arrests but what if, say, a Wall Street firm asks it’s job applicants if they’ve ever helped plan a financial crime? And if they did ask would a positive answer get the applicant rejected or hired?

See? These are tricky times in which we live.
