Savvy Confessions: I Just Had the Worst Interview

This reader posted in our anonymous Savvy Confessions group, venting about the worst interview she ever had. Do you have any words of encouragement for her?

So I just had the worst interview ever. The guy who interviewed me was knocking back whiskey at 4 pm like no other. And because I used to have job positions that are on the low-paying side (educator and nonprofit), my interviewer kept asking me if i was interested in money. Of course, I'm interested in money! He kept saying that I was used to working for less money, so he asked me how I would feel if they started paying me more money. At this rate, I'm beginning to regret even thinking of changing industries. I wanted to try another career path just to see if I like it, and of course, I'm looking forward to more pay. Maybe this interview is a sign that I should go back to what I was doing. What do you think?
