Interview questions

I came in and had the job. An acquaintance had emailed the mayor my resume and since I didn’t need pay, he agreed to take me on immediately. My interview was just me coming in, telling them why I was interested, and giving them my availability.

Advice on how to prepare

I wish I’d believed them when they said I wouldn’t have much to do. I naively assumed I would be able to find things or my initiative would impress them enough to give me more responsibility, but there simply is no work to do here.
