Pre-Interview Nerves

I have an interview on Thursday!!! Yay!! It’s always a pick me up to be invited to an interview. It’s so much like dating–putting yourself in an online dating service and hoping that your wierd quirks fit someone else’s wierd quirks out there. Hoping you’re not totally un-dateable. Then comes the silence…the checking of your email and phone on the hour hoping someone other than the roommate or mother has called.

Lots of practice at this one 😉

An interview is a huge pick me up though–it’s proof that perhaps there is a perfect fit and to that end…it’s time to find the “look.”

For this interview, I’ve the great advantage that a friend of mine works for the system. I’ve been able to pick her brain on all kind of topics before I go in to meet with them. This not only gives me inside info on the system, it also allows me to ask questions that might not be correct for an interview. Over my two years of recent interviews and numerous online discussions, I’ve learned that there are a number of areas that are “fuzzy” when going into an interview. Sometimes you can ask and it’s fine…other times not so much.

I’m nervous, of course, and I’ll change my mind on my outfit six times. And of course, it’s going to be a high of 40 that day. It’s October people!! 40 should be my low…not my HIGH. I’m not in the upper peninsula of Michigan!! I’ll be freezing in a skirt, but I should wear a skirt.

Alright…enough library stuff for the evening…I’m going to do another post on my knitting obsession and then get back to the hat I’m working on right now.

Cheers
