Interview Nerves
Posted: 3:36:00 PM 0 comments
Now playing: Gopher - 3: Meeting - The Gathering of Arms (6:39)

I love interviews. At the same time, I hate them.

The plus side is the exploring of a new potential opportunity, meeting new people, getting a glimpse at how other places do things.

This is, of course, aside from the fact I become a ball of nerves when I know that the reason I am at one in the first place is to compete with one or more people based on a comparison of our capabilities in my field of choice. Much is at stake, financial stability being at the top of the list, and I tend to go into them thinking, at least on a subconscious level, "Don't screw up!" This is fine, though, as that is part of the process.

But what I absolutely hate is the feeling I have after them! Not immediately after them, though. I tend to get on a rather healthy post-interview high in the minutes after. But then it sinks in - the waiting has begun. Ugh. The feeling deep down within of not knowing what's going to happen can be surprisingly strong.

Wish me luck.
