Back when I was in between high school and college, I had applied for a job at a chiropractors office as a secretary. The interview was going great but then the sly dog threw me a curve ball.
Now, the ladies in the office told me that I just HAD to ask all of the interviewers this questions so here it goes, if you were a bird, what kind of bird would you be and why?
Instantly my palms started to sweat, I could feel the blood rushing to my head, and panic started to slowly rise in me. This isn't one of the questions I had rehearsed. In a hot mess of a panic I told him a mockingbird. I then went to explain that it was because mockingbirds are always learning new songs and sing to their own tune.
Yeah right, that's what I should have said. Instead I rambled on about how they are annoying and copy others. It goes without saying that I didn't get the job.
As graduation looms nearer, there is one one, huge, gigantic obstacle left for me to overcome: an internship.
I was a little late on the get-go on finding an internship. I noticed this when all of my other classmates were already talking about the internships they had gotten for the summer. Whaaa? We're supposed to have those already? Apparently we were!
I didn't even pay attention in class because I was so anxious to get home and apply like crazy. I have applied to so many internships. Some in Colorado, Massachusetts, Wyoming, Montana, Minnesota, Idaho, Oregon, and Ohio.
So when I got an email back for an interview request from a company in Minnesota, I was scared at first. I don't know anything about Minnesota. Where is Minnesota?
|It's right here.|
Well, it's cool to me.
This morning was the interview and I was beyond nervous. I haven't interviewed for a job in probably 3 or 4 years. Visions of my terrible-no-good interview came back and I became so anxious. I didn't want to look like a freak, I wanted this internship so bad. However, once I called, it was all cool. I talked as if I was talking to a friend and I felt so confident in the answers that I gave. In a week I'll know if they want a follow up interview which I may have to actually go to Minnesota to do that. Yikes, we'll tackle that when we cross that bridge.
