So I had the interview.
I really don't know how it went. In my opinion, I'm not good at interviewing, yet I've managed to get almost every job I've ever applied for, ESPECIALLY the ones I was recommended for.
But I still get nervous and I start stammering, even though I've read a thousand of those "How to Ace Every Interview" articles that are floating around the internet. I guess I just need more practice.
Oh! I didn't tell you the worst part! I brought my portfolio with me, with ALL the writing I've ever done catalogued in chronological order. So the interviewer looks at it, and actually READS WHAT I'VE WRITTEN. I've never had anyone who was in a position to give me a job actually read my stuff while I'm sitting there.
I had just gotten to the point where I was secure with myself and I didn't question that I was a good writer, and now all that sense of security went out the window.
"Oh my God, is there a spelling error in that story? Did I cite everything properly? Does she really want to read my story on interracial dating where I quoted a man who said black men have big penises? Did I even have to include that? Arrgggh!"
But she seemed to like me. Maybe not enough to give me a job, but enough for the interview to last an hour and a half.
So, I don't know. I'll let you know as soon as I know. Wish me luck!
