Interview.

Thursday, May 31, 2007

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.

    I hope that the results were to your benefit. It sounds like your interviewer was good at putting people on the spot. making you make quick decisions and looking at your resources. I wonder if there really was a "correct" answer for her.

    Great job for meeting your short term goal... You will continue to suceed in a healthy life, even if the interviewer doesn't see your potential for success.
