Job Interview – Way More Fun Than the Application

28 Aug

So since I am “between two jobs” at the time, I am attempting to become a person WITH a job. This means that I write a ton of job applications, call people that have job listings and – hopefully – go for a few interviews.

Today I took the train to Stockholm from where I live, managed to find the place where the interview was and succeeded in being on time. The job was for a consulting firm (and who wouldn´t want to say that they work as a consult, just asking?) and they are offering an administrative position for about five months.

So, my least favorite part of this whole job searching process is writing the applications, it all makes sense that one should read the ad, figure out if it fits and then write a page or so about why I would be perfect for the position, but it is not a fun thing to do.
On the other hand, when I finally get called for an interview, it is both nerve-wrecking and a ton of fun. The good part is that they think you´re good enough to come in and see them, you get to wear a spiffy outfit and to talk about yourself for a while. Really, the only nerve-wrecking part for me is right before the interview.

So I think the interview went well and I keep my fingers crossed that this will work out.
Wine and cheese tonight with a few friends to keep my mind off of being unemployed… 🙂 (it´s not that bad, just hoping it´ll work out soon).
