I'm still hoping for a callback for "part 2" in the interview process. She did happen to mention that there were several people from my previous company applying for the position as well. *sigh* Hubs said maybe they are taking a week or two to do all of the interviews. At least I haven't received a rejection letter yet. So no news is good news.
The interview is all such a blur. Though in typical fashion, I'm second guessing myself and thinking of how I could have answered questions better. Ugh! I'd prepared for so many of the "typical" interview questions, and she didn't ask me any of those. So the ones I answered were really on the spot answers.
I had looked over their web site and asked many questions regarding that (since the position is related to the site). I wanted her to know I did my homework on them. I also prepared a list of 10 questions to ask her so that the interview would be interactive and so I'd look interested (which I was, of course). Weird thing...she didn't ask to see my portfolio. I had it sitting on her desk. And I was so wrapped up in all of the questions that I failed to ask "would you like to see my portfolio?" *sigh* Maybe that will come later in the interview process. Perhaps she uses the first round of interviews to simply get to know the candidates.
This is going to do me in. Seriously, I'm so stressed. I can't enjoy doing any of my home and craft projects because my mind is elsewhere. I continue to look for leads every day. And there is STILL nothing out there! I guess it would be too hopeful to wish that the economy would make a swift turn around overnight, wouldn't it? I do appreciate all of the well wishes! One of these days, I'll have a really upbeat positive blog entry! I promise! ;)
