Description

A fast-paced comedy exploring the interview process and the struggle to prove one's worth. Eager to impress, naive young hopefuls Cassie and Georgie are intent on making a good first impression. Not Quite follows the trials and tribulations of two young women, their ill-conceived handling of the dreaded interview, and the seemingly impossible feat of cracking the job market. Nepotism, sexism and classism are all familiar pitfalls, but with fingers crossed, strong handshakes and uncomfortable footwear, these two will overcome every setback to get onto the career ladder.

Cassie Symes and Georgie Thomas are getting desperate.  It doesn’t matter how many job applications they file on-line, off-line or in person, they can’t seem to crack the corporate code that opens the magic door to a regular pay cheque.  So nearly there, yet not quite. It’s not as if...
