"Eat Well, Stay Fit, Die Anyway"

The Job Hunt

I’m brushing the flies from my eyes and wiping the sweat from my brow. I try to stay downwind, as I creep my way through the underbrush looking for the freshest tracks that will direct me to my prey. I grip my weapon fiercely at any sign of recent tracks, and I sniff the air for any trace of a scent. I am hunting an elusive beast… a job that doesn’t suck. Alas, I may have found my prey, but now I must stalk it, trap it, and kill it. And by that, I mean that I have to lie just enough to get them to hire me.
Without saying too much, it’s a tech writing job (my dream job, short of being paid to do nothing) with a really cool software firm (that’s cool software AND a cool firm) and unlike previous employers coughcorelcough, they won’t go out of business or suffer from mismanagement, so my job would be secure.
So… how do I court this little lady? Any advice? Anyone?
