The job interviews are coming.....

Well, the list of job interviews at OPE has risen to 8 now. I'm still debating on if I want to apply for a position that I received an email for the end of last week. It involves a very important dilemma...whether or not I could handle working with someone I knew years ago. Also, I'm not sure if I want to add anymore interviews to my list. I feel as if I have enough right now and I'm kind of waiting to see if anything more interesting will pop up during this last week.

The phone interview I had today went pretty well I thought. There were a couple times when I had to ask them to repeat a question because the connection through the speaker phone wasn't very good. I hope I hear from them again soon because, even though it would be place me within driving distance of my in-laws, I would really be interested in working there. The school seems really great, it would give me a lot of experience for the future, and the area around the school looks like it would be beautiful. Very scenic and postcard-ish. Well, here's to hoping!

Telephone Job Interviews

I find telephone job interviews extremely nerve-wrecking. The reason for this is because you can't read the body language of your interviewers to see if you are giving them the answers they are looking for or if you are even making a good impression. I had a phone interview the first week of February and I still haven't heard anything back from them. It's making me nervous. Also, I have another phone interview next Monday and another one the week after that before I head off to OPE (Oshkosh Placement Exchange) where I have 7 (count them) 7 job interviews set up. I wasn't nervous about that until I looked at one college's website and they have a countdown to OPE. NOW I'm worried about what I'll wear or how I'll act.....ugh. All I know is it better be worth it. All the interviews I have set up are really great schools and I would love to work at any one of them. I guess we'll see. I'll keep everyone posted on my phone interview that's next Monday.
