Not good

I should be preparing for this interview I have, first thing tomorrow morning. In fact, I've had plenty of time to, having known about this for a week...but whenever I sit down and try to think of my professional achievements and how I might use them to convey my suitability for the position, my mind goes blank and I get that funny tingly feeling at the bottom of my spine that I always get when I'm nervous or scared.

I stayed up late into the night reading the bank's annual report, mission statements, prognoses, positioning documents; and what information had I retained this morning? Nothing.

Looks like I'm going to have to wing it again. Stay tuned for tomorrow's update (but don't expect it to be a good one).

Thank you; and thanks for the advice contained in your icon, too -- I'll take it to heart!

I'm sure you'll be fine. Just try not to panic too much. *hug*

Well I was, and I wasn't, if that makes sense. I did talk a lot, presented myself well -- but they went quieter and quieter as the hour went on.

I think they were a bit disconcerted to find out I'd googled them and looked them up on LinkedIn...but if there's information out there you don't want your prospective subordinates to know about you, don't put it up there, I say!

I'm glad there's someone else as bad as me, but I've rarely had a week to prepare - an evening is sometimes a luxury!

Good luck!

Point is, I may have had a week to prepare, but...I didn't take it, did I? I procrastinated and left it till yesterday...

...and I'm glad I did, because I'm fairly sure I fluffed it. So I've only wasted a day instead of a whole week!

Fingers and toes crossed for you.

I can imagine myself in the same situation...

My best advice: chin up and full speed ahead!

Thanks! I think I may have gotten too far ahead of them, though...I showed myself too bloody clever, I'm afraid.

Re: Not good
I'm sorry; I think you may have wasted them...I don't think they'll come back with an offer.
