Q: I love the theatre. From an early age, I was on stage, and, in my 20s, I still take part in plays with my local amateur drama group. Alas, I’m not destined for a career in the West End. I did business studies in college and I have recently seen a job advertised as a marketing person with a theatre production company. I think I’d love to do it, and I know I’d be good at it. I have loads of ideas already for promoting the company in all sorts of ways. But I am worried about the whole thing of mixing work and pleasure. In other words, whither your hobby if your hobby becomes your work? Any thoughts? (JC, email).
Around about now, thousands of students are bursting onto the jobs market. The jobs market can seem a daunting place at the moment.

Q: I’m going for an interview next week, and it’s a bit like going back in time. In what we will call a previous life, I knew two of the five people who will be interviewing me - one in a professional context (we worked in sister organisations) and the other in a social environment (we played five-a-side together each week through mutual friends). Should I acknowledge the fact that I know them when I go in the door? (Tom, email).

Q: The interview was going fairly well, I felt. I had handled their queries well and had even managed to score some extra points based on the research I had done into the organisation. Sooner than I had anticipated, they asked me if I had any questions for them. I hadn’t, and took this question as the cue that they were wrapping things up. I made to leave, and they let me, replete with the usual ‘thank you and we will be in touch’ palaver: it was only afterwards I realised that maybe they had more questions to ask me. Was I premature in my departure? In fairness, they did get in touch – a Dear John, alas. (GP, email).
