I had an interview this morning. First interview in 2 weeks. I want this job. I am absolutely terrified that I am not going to get this job and if you cannot get a job that SCREAMS “good fit” then what do you do?
It’s an industry I haven’t worked in before. You know what? The industry (which I won’t name here) is so specific that there just aren’t going to be a lot of people who are not scientists who HAVE worked in the industry. In the past decade I have learned legal and medical terminology, I taught myself HTML and some CSS, I learned 3 new (to me) software packages and was doing front-line phone support for them in a WEEK. I am not some idiot who just fell off a turnip truck and I can do this job.
I am supposed to hear something about this job today. It’s 3PM and I’ve not heard anything. As the clock ticks toward 5, I become more and more anxious.
I want to reset the counter. It’s getting close to 90 days. And November is coming, which means businesses are going to stop hiring until after the 1st of the year.
