- Wedding: October 2012
So, I recently got laid off because the law firm I work for is trying to get bought out by a larger law firm and so they got rid of all of their part time employees, although I was working fulltime hours. Anyway, today is my last day and I also have an interview later. I am more nervous than usual because I know the woman who I am interviewing with. She is actually who got me the interview and she is crazy smart. She works full time while finishing her PHD and she just makes me nervous because I feel kind of dumb in comparison. We met while I was in a master’s program for a minute and now she runs the organization I am interviewing with. I suppose she saw something that she liked of me and I know I can do the job and then some, but I am afraid I will say something less than intelligent and embarrass myself. She also told me to make sure not to talk too much and to come dressed professional, so now I am afraid I will talk too much or not at all because I am nervous about being talkative! I kind of wish she hadn’t told me anything. I feel interviews just go better when I just answer as myself. If I overthink it I always sound like an office robot.
Anyway, I am trying to prepare as much as possible and be positive! But I know my stomach will be in knots until I walk into the interview.
