    Della glanced distractedly at her watch as she sat waiting for the train to go by. Her interview with Jay’s Hospitality was scheduled to begin in five minutes. Within minutes, the train ended and the hotel office was only another few minutes away. It took her longer than she expected to find a parking spot, but she quickly checked her suit and slipped into her good shoes that she had shined just that morning. She grabbed her portfolio, double-checking it to make sure it contained an extra copy of her resume, some blank sheets of paper, and a pen. She then walked up to the reception desk and announced her appointment with a friendly smile. What did Della do wrong?

    Darby fidgeted with a pen as he thought for a moment about the interviewer’s question. So far he was getting very positive feedback from the interview. He had arrived early, wearing his best suit, and had been able to give quick answers to every question. He also liked the interviewer. She was sympathetic when he told her about the hassle he’d experienced that morning in traffic and had sent a secretary to get him a pen when he realized he’d forgotten his. He took a deep breath and began to answer her latest question. “It’s a good thing I practiced interviewing with my cousin,” he thought to himself. “These are tough questions.” What did Darby do wrong?
