    Default Wish me luck!

    I am so nervous. I have an interview this afternoon at 3 EST. I was at my last job for 12 years so I haven't had an interview in a long time. I have already had a short phone screening that went well, otherwise I wouldn't have been asked to come in, BUT I stress so much about what to wear and all that crap. I feel like it's judgement day.

    I also have another interview Tuesday. I already had a phone interview with them as well. My stomach has been doing back flips.

    I was enjoying my time off after my layoff until my husband was notified he was going to be laid off too!! Seriously!!?! So once he got that news I applied to a few jobs I had been keeping an eye on but not applying to. My husband, barring any major speed bumps, will have an offer letter on Monday. He was able to find a job within the company he was getting laid off from. I joked with him that I would be withdrawing my applications!!

    Why is getting a new job so stressful!?

    Oh I know...it's because I want the best of both worlds. I want to be a stay at home mom, but also a working mom. I feel like I'm having and early life crisis.

    By the way, I had an interview yesterday for the second job I applied for so now I just have to wait. According to the hiring mgr for the job I interviewed for yesterday, I am the leading candidate. I only know that because I tried to cancel the interview. I am concerned about getting there for 8am, but he is willing to let me start at 830 if it makes my life easier and asked me to reconsider coming to the interview. I don't want to have a rushed morning, like I used to!

    I can imagine how you are nervous, it does seem like a yucky feeling.

    I am sure you won't see this for your interview today but remember to listen and ask questions about the company. Be yourself and realize the world will not end if you don't get this job. Best of luck to you on your job search.

    I've come to the realization - I DO NOT want to do the same job I used to do and THAT is the exact reason why I will find any reason to not be happy about getting a job offer. I do not want to do tech support anymore! After 12 years of doing it, I'm tired of technology. I love the people/customer service interaction, but I just don't want to be in that role anymore. I've shifted my focus to finding a new career (and applied for a position today in a different field). It's going to be hard to get a job doing something that I don't have direct industry experience with, but I am hopeful I will be able to do it. If any one has any suggestions...shout them out!!
