    Default Interview Jitters

    I totally had a mad breakdown this morning. I'm usually pretty cool with interviews but I have two big ones coming up tomorrow in which I'm flying cross the country for tonight (yes, they are paying for the flight). I totally freaked because while these two companies are very laid back, they are also very big and have high fashion sense. As I was packing this morning, I freaked out because I suddenly felt like I had NOTHING to wear!!! I think if I can get out of today's meeting early, I might leave work earlier than I intended on just so I can go to the mall and grab a "safety" outfit. Ya know, an outfit that I know if I'm screwed with everything else I brought I could totally end up wearing that instead.

    AHH!!! I got my portfolio all printed out today, looks fab! I'll see you girls when I get back on Monday!!

    I've had a couple of fly-in interviews. My advice is (1) train yourself to think about anything but the interview; read a book, magazine, fantasize about bags! and (2) take 4-5 deep breaths whenever you start feeling nervous, while repeating "relax" in your head when you exhale--don't laugh; it works! Try it and you'll see. Good luck!

    I'm here!! So I had two interviews with 2 different companies today. I'm pretty beat considering my flight got in way later than it should have and I had to drive an hour to get to the hotel. UGH. i think the interviews went really well!! i definitely know which company i'd rather work for, however both seem great (and interested). one of them (the favorite) told me that i had so much more experience/abilities than the other people they interviewed for the job. then he proceeded to ask me my age...i know legally i don't have to say but i did tell him i was 23 and he was like "wow...i mean i know you look young but 23. you have accomplished so much in such a short time, i'm really impressed". it was rad and plus, my age is a great benefit in this specific industry.

    so the next step is - i have dinner tonight with one of the interviewers and then see what happens! one of the companies wants to have the position filled by September 1st - and if they liked me enough on this "informal" interview then they will fly me back out again for a "formal panel" interview (scary!). My only concern is I don't have ANY vacation time left at work and already I had to lie about why I took Friday off. I don't know if I can pull off another lie.

    ^^^hey susieq, glad to hear your interview went well and I do hope you get the job... But can't you just tell your current job the truth that you have an interview? I'm sure they would understand if you'd want to move up..

    Wow, it all sounds really exciting. Hope everything goes well with the dinner and you'll be back for the panel. If you need to, can't you take sick leave or say that you have a family emergency? I think it's best to keep it to yourself cause you never know what your employer's reaction would be. I know at all the places where I was working, it would not be taken too kindly if they know you're thinking of leaving.

    ya i think my current job would just give me a real lousy attitude if they knew i was interviewing. i might have to pull out the sick-day card because this trip was my family emergency excuse. eep! i hate lying.
