No one enjoys their first day back to work after a vacation to a sunny destination but it almost seemed like work wanted to punish me today. I didn’t check my email or Slack messages while I was gone, so I was very surprised this morning when I saw that I was scheduled to conduct three separate one-hour interviews with engineers who had applied for a position. I also had a last-minute Zoom meeting with an engineer to discuss a crash.
Suffice to say, it was an exhausting day even normally but then factor in that it was a Monday and I’d be in travel mode for a week, I was totally spent by the time my last interview was done at 5pm.
I fell asleep on the ouch after dinner. I think I deserved that.
