I applied for a job at a university and was called in for an interview.

Before it, I spent several hours studying the job description, anticipating what questions would be asked and what questions of my own that I could ask.

After the interview started, one member of the panel informed me that they had changed the job description (Pity that they did not tell me before the interview).

For the next half hour I found myself having to think very quickly in an attempt to answer questions based on the job description that I never saw.

At the same time, I was trying to think up questions that I could ask. I felt like a criminal suspect being interviewed by detectives. For a fleeting moment I felt like asking for a lawyer.

I did not get the job.
