I have an actual LIVE interview tomorrow with Pioneer! I'm really excited, but also very nervous. I've only had phone interviews thus far in my 'real jobs' search, and I've completely blown every single one. I'm not very good with phone interviews, and I'm especially bad with those darn behavioral questions. I have a hard time thinking on the spot and need to prepare for any and all questions beforehand, which is very daunting.
To prepare for any and all questions that might arise, I went to the public library yesterday and checked out 3 books about interviewing, as well as answers to the toughest interview questions. Also, a friend of mine had potential interview questions that Pioneer actually uses! So, I will go over those tonight with my fiance and make sure I sound confident and positive.
I've also made 'Data input worksheets' that go over every detail of my past experiences: jobs, volunteer work, education, activities, and honors. It was suggested by one of the library books to do this and it has really helped! I don't have as much trouble thinking about past experiences for example interview questions, now that I have gone through my past and written them out.
I also gave my kitties flea baths today - they have fleas, btw. UGH! What a pain in the butt!
My cats, like most, hate baths. We have been applying the front line for 2 months now, but I keep finding fleas when I use the special flea comb. So, we bought special shampoo and I finally used it today. Good thing I read the bottle because apparently it can be corrosive to human skin - wtf? Also, it needs to stay on the cats for 5 minutes to be effective. So, I dawned latex gloves and kept my unwilling cats in the bath for approximately 5 minutes (although it felt like 20, haha). I hope this helps - I'm so sick of fleas!
