I was asked back for a second interview today along with two other candidates. I was also asked to bring collateral materials from events or ask letters that I have worked on in the past. That caused an internal panic because I had NO IDEA where any of that stuff was. I tore my storage unit and closets apart this weekend and managed to find one newsletter. ONE. I’m worried it will count against me that I didn’t haul that stuff from California to Washington. Or maybe I did and chucked it in my last move. I mean, I’ve done all that stuff- helped design invitations, written fundraising letters, edited content for an agency website, etc.- but all I have is my word. Lacking these materials has shaken my confidence a bit.
Also, do you know how difficult it is to find a suitable second interview outfit when you have already worn all your outfits to your place of business previously? When you don’t want to fork out more money for another outfit, it’s pretty difficult. I think I found something suitable and newish. I just wish I didn’t have hormone face. I was JUST noting how clear my skin was last week and then, wham!, zit city. I’m going to try to ignore it so my confidence doesn’t take any more of a beating than it already has. I am definitely not feeling as “unapologetically me” as I did last week.
If you have any good vibes, please send them to me at 10am PST. I’ve been overthinking this whole thing so interviewing mojo is faltering.
