* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Interview and job fair tomorrow
« on: January 28, 2015, 06:13:34 pm »
I've got an interview at 11:15 tomorrow morning for a customer service position, and a job fair in the evening, along with 35 copies of my resume. So even if I bomb the morning interview, I still have 35 chances at the fair.

If I don't have at least one job/offer/another interview from this fair by the end of the night, I'll be severely disappointed, but also impressed at my inability to get a damn job.
So any good thoughts and wishes are appreciated.

Thanks everyone!

So the morning interview was a bust. I went to the address and it was an empty lot. The ad was originally on Craigslist so my guess is the guy I talked to was probably the Craigslist Killer.

But the fair was a decent success. I have 3 interviews next week, and considering there were only 7 companies I'm pretty happy with myself. One of the companies, NY Life Insurance, my family friend/former neighbor works for. So there's a huge possibility that I could get in there, even with my lack of experience.

Sounds to me like that was a success in that you're not actually dead.
