I have a job interview tomorrow and I am totally panicking!
It’s not my dream job (not even close) but we could really use the extra income right now; we just bought a new place and between the mortgage, the extra costs of nesting (ooh, paint! ooh, a new bookshelf! hey, we definitely should get a painting for that wall!), grad school tuition, and wedding planning…we’re pretty much broke.
I haven’t interviewed since I got my last job over 3 years ago; what if I make a total idiot of myself!
Not to mention I need to brush up on my math skills (it’s for a test prep company)…

Think positively and tell yourself (and write this down too several times to get it out into the universe): I got the job! I got the job! I got the job!

Good luck! Drink some coffee before you go and bring some gum to chew while you’re taking the test–both have been shown to improve your test-taking abilities 🙂

Congrats. I agree with @stephinPA:, go in with confidence and it will make all the difference. Also prepare as much as you can so you feel comfortable going in.

Thanks, everyone! I don’t know why I am SO STRESSED about it, but I’ll try positive thinking 🙂 I’ve read up on the company and all that, and I know not to chew gum during the interview or anything, I’m just nervous anyway!
I hope I don’t actually have to take a practice SAT…I haven’t done math in quite some time. I’ll do a bunch of review questions tonight and hope that’s enough!

Good luck! Remember to research the company & come up with some good questions for them! Remember you’re also interviewing them as a potential boss!

@Megan316: Ooh, good point. I will definitely have to come up with some good questions. I’m so bad at that part.
It’s just a part-time position and, as I say, not my dream job, but the experience could help when I’m applying for full-time in my field in just a few months.
I just found out it’s a phone interview which makes me that much more nervous; I’m much better at communicating in person. Any great tips from you wise bees?

@BunnyBrideToBe: You will not make a total idiot of yourself!! THe best book to read before an interview is “What Color is your Parachute?” I always read some of it before an interview and while Im applying for jobs. You will do great!!
