The Night Before the Interview

  • Hair washed and styled.  ⁄  I made a valiant effort but my straighteners are hiding. Now all I can do is hope it behaves.
  • Clothes chosen and laid out. √
  • Researched company.  ⁄  They’re a big company and their website is an information overload but I’ve been cramming and I’m getting there.
  • Re-read job description and person specification. √ Job description took some interpreting but I’ve got it now.
  • Thought of answers to common questions.  ⁄  In my head but not out loud. Still, I do have thoughts and that’s the main thing. And they always ask you something crazy you weren’t expecting. Like that one about my mother. Did I tell you guys about that? Completely threw me.
  • Planned journey. √
  • Two copies of CVs printed to take in. √

In other news, I overheard something depressing in the Jobcentre today: the woman signing on before me, who looked close to retirement age and had some problems with mobility, said that going to the Jobcentre was her ‘day out’.

The interview went well! I’ll know within a fortnight, so wish me luck.
