A few years ago, I was looking for a job, and in an effort to shake things up a bit, I applied for positions that I normally wouldn’t have considered before. I’ve mainly worked in accounting and human resources all my life, but after my little stint of owning some bars, I thought I’d give bar management a try.
Finally, after sending out resumes, and phone call screening interviews, I was granted an interview in front of a board of members for a position with one of the numerous Elk’s Clubs in the area. I was nervous, but excited. It was a definite step in a different direction. I’ve always hated interviews in front of multiple people, so I set about making myself mentally prepared for any questions they might ask me.
I don’t normally stress much on what to wear to an interview. I have a few business suits that are my “interview” suits, but thinking that I would dress it up a bit for this job, I decided to wear a dress that I hadn’t worn in years. I tried it on, and was pleased with the way it looked, and so mentally, I felt like I was prepared for the interview.
