Job interview jitters…
I don’t dare pretend that I like interviews. I’m what you would call a trip-over-my-tongue-word-stumbler. I blank. I will admit I don’t prepare myself as wel as I should. I work with the public in the fast food business (well until wed I do at elast… last day. YAY!) I deal with people all the time, but slap an ‘interview’ tag onto it and that’s the end of it.
And I have one tomorrow. I’ve applied for a position that would be really good. Experience-wise and career-wise. From prepping and re-writing my resume and coverletter until I thought my eyes would bleed, and then walking to HR and getting over the nerves of handing it over, I waited. And didn’t wait long. From handing in my resume Friday afternoon at 2:30 to yesterday morning at 9:30, I’d already had a call from the interviewer wanting to see me for an interview and for a copyediting test. Crap… and did I mention I haven’t honed up on my copyediting yet?
I’m nervous. ARGH!
