I;m glad you have a opportunity to sell yourself from applying to a job but try not to get too excited and remember it's only a interview where you maybe competing with several people. Also most decide to hire based on your personality in the interview not how qualified you are for the job.

Good Luck on the interview.

Thanks,all. This is a blue-collar union job, so looks and personality arent much of a factor. This company is VERY choosy about hiring so my squeaky-clean record is a big plus.
I have no illusions however, I will be competing with younger men and women.
Now it's on to the interview!

We are all rooting for you buddy. If I remember right, you have been out of work for over a year. I hope you get the job.
