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.
