So, I’ve been looking for a new job for about six months now. I what to keep doing what I’m already doing, just with a different company. The company I am with now did a company wide pay cut right after everyone signed their contracts. I took a $3/hour pay cut. I have been feeling it ever since!
I’ve been researching companies. I don’t want to apply for a company that I’m going to hate.
I found one and I have a good feeling about it. A friend works for that company and recommended it, too.
Anyway, I decided to apply for the position. I put in my application and they wanted to schedule an interview. Awesome, right?
Ugh. Anxiety is a bitch!!
I scheduled the interview and then cancelled it. I waited a few days and decided to reschedule. My anxiety started to get the best of me. I was determined to cancel the interview again. Well… My interview was less than 12 hours away. Could not cancel or reschedule if it was less than 12 hours away.
Talk about full panic. I felt like I was going to puke. I wanted to cry. I started shaking and feeling horrible.
I started thinking about not showing up for the interview. The website said two no-shows would result in having to wait three months before being able to apply again.
I thought well if I don’t show up this time, I will show up for the next one.
I couldn’t do that. What if they remember I was a no-show and already have this negative impression of me?!? I would definitely not get the job in the future.
I attended the interview. Once I started showing my skills, I felt at home. I am good at what I do – I know I am. The interview had a time limit to show what I could do. The time flew by! I was shocked.
After the interview was over, I felt this weight lifted.
Today, I received an email saying CONGRATULATIONS.
