The Interview

After beginning my job search more than two months ago, I am finally starting to hear back from some companies.

Yay!

But you know what’s not so yay?

Job interviews.

It’s been years since I’ve had to do one, and I forgot how awful they can be; the knowledge that I am about to be judged, and the butterflies in my stomach as I await that judgement.

The first interview I did was over zoom. It started off okay – we had some good banter going. And then came the questions…

I babbled, I rambled, I ummed. I could literally see the interest fade from their eyes as their faces dropped. The remainder of the interview was just out of courtesy.

It was one of the worst interviews I’ve experienced- but there’s something liberating in the fact that everything that could go wrong, did go wrong.

It happened, I survived, and I will take it as practice for the next one. 🙂


Also, just as a bonus random brain dump: this week I was looking for a sign that everything would work out – and God literally sent me a sign! A Bible arrived at my front door the day I needed it. It was meant to arrive a few weeks back but there had been some shipping issues. Talk about timing.
