The Art Of Knowing Without Knowing

(My sister and I are talking about my husband’s current job – how he wasn’t qualified for the position, but his manager is an old friend who knew he would pick up the skills quickly. This gets us on the topic of one of her job interviews, where my sister wasn’t qualified for the job, but didn’t know until she was in the interview.)

Me: “So, were they checking to see if you had the computer skills for the job, or to see how quickly you could pick it up?”

Sister: “Probably both. The funny thing is that I ended up learning that stuff at my next job.”

Me: “Oh, yeah? What did you do at that job, anyway?”

Sister: “I don’t know.”
