Best Place to Psych Yourself Up for a Job Interview

Stone Gardens

It's been a tough year. Everyone, it seems, is either collecting unemployment or working under the dark cloud of possible layoffs. Job-hunting has become a daunting task, seemingly insurmountable. What you need is a little achievement to put some confidence in your step. And there's no better way than smacking the top of the wall at Stone Gardens. The Ballard rock-climbing gym is warehouse-sized, with enough routes to keep pushing you to new and higher goals. Pick one at the top of your skill level and spend two hours working your way, hold by hold, to the metal railing at the top of the wall. If you can do that, of course you can breeze into some HR manager's office and explain why they should match your salary and give you dental. Plus rock climbers have the sexiest backs ever, which will lift anyone's spirits.—Laura Onstot
