Interview crunch time.
So as you all know, I had an interview with the Government today for a Tourism and Culture Communications Intern position.
I didn't know how much I wanted it until I got all dressed up. I looked like a businesswoman. I deserved to be a businesswoman. Stupid illness always messing up my life.
I explained my circumstances in the most basic way ever. I have a chronic pain condition - it causes me a lot of problems and I'll have to miss time for doctor's appointments - but I'm a fantastic worker.
I brought my portfolio, I was well-spoken, I wrote a great press release (in my own opinion...), and was generally awesome.
I got the feeling throughout the interview that they liked me, but still had qualms about the lack of references and practical work. I highly doubt I will get the position.
I don't want to feel the disappointment again. It's tiring.
I still have a sense of pride though. I went out there and presented myself in the best way I could. I did a good job. I'd want me.
