Ben Folds Five – “Selfless, Cold, and Composed”
I had a job interview today.
Like, a real-life, career-type job. One that I would really, really like to get. The job description is exactly what I want to do – the official title is Production Artist, but it basically involves the actual building out of websites (and HTML emails) using web standards. I was freakishly nervous all day today but I think the interview went well. We seemed to get along nicely, they have a great sense of humor, and I know three of the people that work there already. I don’t want to say too much and jinx myself, but I’m optimistic about it.
Sadly, I wore bad shoes to walk to the interview, so I have horrible blisters on the bottoms of both my feet. Yeah. The bottoms. It hurts to stand, and I feel really stupid that I didn’t just wear normal shoes to walk there and then change into my nice shoes. Bad plan, that one.
My shoulder is also super sore from carrying my bag around. I do this all the time, but for some reason today it decided it didn’t like carrying my bag and so I hurt.
I got ready for my interview at school, and I had several people tell me I looked “sharp,” so I think I dressed pretty well. I had a black suit-jacket type thing, black pants, and a camisole with black, red and pink on it to go under the jacket. I think black sometimes isn’t recommended for interviews because you look “severe” or too serious, but I dunno… I thought it looked nice. People look good in black.
So! To conclude, I probably will not talk too much more about the whole job thing, suffice to say that it went well and I’m terribly proud of myself for just trying. It was a huge step for me.
