Ok, so today I had an interview at work for this position I REALLLY want to get.
It sounds kinda hard, but worth it. Challenging and a way of moving up within the company and learning more about our business. I want it sooo bad.
I think the interview went well but now I'm more anxious than ever!!!!
It's like when I used to audition. I was never very nervous before, only after. When I get done auditioning my stomach starts doing flips and my heart starts racing and I start shaking...
UGH! It's so nervewracking!!! I'm never worried about the interview/audition itself because I know I'll do the best I can in it. It's just the RESULT that freaks me out!
I think I'm good at interviewing though. I've pretty much never interviewed somewhere without being offerred the position, so I guess that's good. I bet all my years of auditioning helped even though you don't really have to talk during those.
The hardest questions in this interview were about prioritizing. I usually have no problem prioritizing, but it's hard to explain. I gave the reasons I'd use, and then I said how I would use those reasons. Then she threw a curveball at me saying well what if you had two items, same deadline, one is for your supervisor and one is for a client. I said I'd do the one for the client first and then talk to my supervisor if I needed more time for the other. She said what if you don't have any time, I said well, I'd work harder, more hours, whatever it needed to get it done. Then she said, what if you couldn't work any additional hours. I suggested going to colleagues for assistance. She then said what if no one can help you. I was just like, Really I don't know. I knonw that I would get it done. I've never had a deadline I wasn't able to meet -- maybe people just give me reasonable deadlines, or maybe it's just because I do work fast (work pace was one of the first questions), but I would do my best to get both done by their deadline.
I am dying to know....
Also I weighed in at 249 yesterday and 250 today so I have officially met my goal of 250 by June. I need to amend my goal listing thingie so it shows my next goal...
230 by August 13th.
