I have a Skype interview in about 15 minutes, and I’m so nervous.
Honestly, I really don’t care if they offer me a job or not, I just don’t want to make a complete fool of myself. I’ve never done a video interview before and for some reason, it’s scaring the shizz out of me – and it’s not even like this is a dream job. My heart is pounding like crazy. I’ve never been this nervous before.
Ahhh! 12 minutes!
I’ll let you know how it goes.

Good luck! Honestly, it’s just a little awkward but not that weird. Since you aren’t sooo worried about the job, Use that to your advantage and just have a convo.
I understand freaking out in advance but once it starts it shouldn’t be bad. And who cares if they think you are “a fool” – they will never see you again and barely know who u are, and since you are skyping – they are probably really far – so who cares?!

@Songbird29: Haha, I actually did just that!
@MissWitty: Lol! Thanks for the laugh, I needed that!
@Firework: Thank you for that advice. That is how I am going to look at it from now on. And since I’ve now done it once, I think the next time won’t be so bad.
Well, that was quick! Towards the end of the interview, I noticed that I was swiveling side to side in my chair a lot.
But I guess I didn’t do too bad, since I’ve been moved on to “phase two” and will speak the elementary school director next.
Thanks so much for the encouragement! The fact that you all took the time to wish me well really means so much to me. I really needed that support.
And I need better deodorant. That interview made me sweat like crazy!

So glad you conquered it! Good luck with the rest of the process, interviewing is always stressful. I do the look in the mirror trick and tell myself I’m awesome…and I also heard that smelling your perfume right beforehand helps too….Although I don’t remember why that was but I do it LOL. Yes that’s right. I smell my perfume (usually on my wrist) and look at myself in the mirror and tell myself I’m awesome. THAT is just how amazing I am.
