Interviewese

By Ian August

Part of our Soundings Reading Series

There is only one open position at Hapdo Technologies Incorporated, and four desperate women–Wilma, Poppy, Beverly, and Janet Janet–will go head to head to head to head to get it.  The first step is acing a job interview that may never come!  Who will come out on top? Who will sink beneath the weight of her own insecurity? Which lady will learn the language of the Corporate Interview? Interviewese is an outrageous comedy about the perils of healthy and unhealthy competition, and the danger of doing whatever it takes to win.
