As it turns out, my university offers various types of job interview coaching and similar stuff, but I only found about them very recently because of how goddamned well hidden is that place, both physically and on the web. Even if I was studying on that campus (humanities, 20 minutes on bus from sciences) I'm not sure if I'd ever wander behind all those other buildings to discover it. Their SEO is even worse than physical location.

Anyway, the first meeting concluded with some general remarks on my overall outlook, which they guesstimated as 'good' due to a relative lack of experience with STEM students – though at least they were upfront about it – and some tips on body language. I came off as too aggressive and both people conducting my mock interview felt closely scrutinized. I guess it can't hurt to give it a try, but I doubt much can be accomplished over a few sessions every two weeks or so.

I have a new RPG group formed from a bunch of people who wanted to try it, but for whatever reason couldn't play. There are surprisingly many of those, three people reached out the same day I put it on student announcements board, and I love the enthusiasm. They seemed stoked about Warhammer Fantasy, but I'm OK with whatever at this point. Can't wait for Saturday.
