Interview Insipiration

So let’s see… when I last left off, I wasn’t in a good place. I’m happy to say that things are looking up. I have two job interviews lined up for Thursday. One of them I’m super excited about, but I don’t want to say anymore (maybe out of fear that I won’t get it?).  The other is a fairly decent sounding job in the financial industry– which seems a little boring but it’s a step up from what I’m doing now I think. Nevertheless, I am thrilled by the response I am getting. My resume is actually getting calls! That  is awesome, because when I first came to this country, I really struggled. I had been out of the workforce for over ten years, and nobody wanted to interview me. I need to go into my interviews psyched up and feeling good. This is when I turn to my Pintrest boards for some inspiration. The power of words have the most transcendent effect on me. Here are some new ones I’ve recently added to my collection.

Tomorrow I’m off shopping for a killer interview outfit. I’m going to buy something fabulous (or as fabulous as suits get–I’m not really a suit person). I plan to go to these interviews looking and feeling the part.  I won’t lie, there’s this little gremlin who lives in the back of my head that fuels me with feelings of self doubt. It looks remarkably like Dr ManWhore. It’s fat and has a really loud voice, but I am going to do everything I can to kill that f*cker off. I have nothing to loose by trying to better my position, but I have lots to win. It is my greatest hope that my next post will contain some amazing news.

I hope the person interviewing me is a guy. I will smile a lot and make him fall in love with me a little. That’s one of the little aces up my sleeve, but other than that, any interview advice you have for me is greatly appreciated.

  2. Good for you, Caroline! It takes courage to step out and to keep striving for something better. I love the pins you shared. The messages are always a welcome pick me up 🙂 I love the ‘dress the part’ bit because it really helps to build the self confidence. I have a gremlin too, dammit. That little bugger really tries to screw things up but you’ll shut him up, I’ve no doubt. All the best in your interviews!!

  3. “Be badass” Love it and completely agree with it! That gremlin is just bugged about being pushed at the back of your head by more important fun things. Soon he will lose even that spot but till then, ignore the creep. Hope you do awesome 😀 and know that we are all rooting for you!

  4. —–I have one suggestion.
    just. be. “YOU.”
    PS. I found a tagline I love love love, which may fit.
    “Some girls are just born with glitter in her veins.”
    Don’t you LOVE IT?!!
    I don’t believe in luck…I believe in destiny. You will be where you are meant to be. xxxx

      1. Well I was asked for references for one of the interviews today. The job is only a tiny step up, but at least it’s a step in the right direction. I haven’t gotten any official offers yet though. Best of luck to you on your interviews ☺️
