velvet glove for the iron fist?

Help my friend not be misperceived so that she can get a job! My friend is super smart, very industrious, a wonderful team member but... makes faces and has a certain demeanor that makes people think that she has, as one person put it, "an attitude problem." This label is TOTALLY NOT deserved, but I do understand why people might get this impression. What can she do to ensure that she comes off as more "likable" in a job interview? [more inside]

oddly tragic voting radio story

NPR-story-with-little-to-go-on-filter: Several years ago, I heard a radio story involving a tribal election in which one candidate was represented as being for re-investing funds in the tribe, while another was for direct payments to tribe members. An tribe member, interviewed, said he'd vote for the latter, although even he didn't think it was best for the tribe or for him in the long term -- because he wanted the cash. [more inside]

Applying for a job when you are on the board

My partner is currently applying for a director position with a non-profit that she is currently on the board of. Obviously, she has a lot of 'insider information' about the direction of the organization. How should she handle this in the interviews? Do search committees handle interviews for someone in her position differently then someone less familar with the org? Any tips would be appreciated.

But I'm having trouble here -- because all I can think to ask is along the lines of "Why are you LIKE that?" She's serious about what she does, and takes herself seriously.
