My biggest change in job searching came when I discovered that, rather than sit there sweating in the hot seat and hoping I was giving them what they wanted, I could turn the interview on its head and interview THEM (thus turning a threatening interrogation into a discussion). I know that's not always possible during the interview because they want you to save your questions for the end, but always make sure you have questions at the end if that's the case. It's amazing to see the interviewer's faces light up when they're talking to someone who appears clearly interested in the organization and the team dynamics and, well, whatever else makes a position really good for YOU! You want to give them the impression that you'd be doing them the favor, and that's a great edge if you can pull it off.

Good Luck!

Thanks everyone!

PA, they are really enjoying school. TC a little more than Savannah I think. She hates having to get up early & get ready. She'd rather stay in her pj's all day.
