How did Thursdays interview go PBQ?

I didn't get the job, I was 1 of 4 interviewed though, the one that got it had a bit more experience, but they have kept my resume on file.

I have just emailed my resume to every Real Estate Agency, then I will follow them up after school goes back. The agent who sold me this house and who I have become friends with, is seeing if he can get me some work experience with him through his agency, so that I can get experience, and become known in the area and also then decide what I want to do either property management or sales.
