Interview Tomorrow for Dream Job

Rank: Baboon | 106

I have an interview tomorrow for my dream job. I'm so ready to be done with consulting, and I'm so ready to be done with freelance work (my overhead is so gdamn high that I'm close to eating dog food.)

Anyway...this is exactly where I want to be in life, maybe until I die (I'm pushing mid 30s) This is a small and very prestigious shop, so a great opportunity to do really interesting work. I've never prepared for an interview in my life as hard as I've prepared for this one. I think I got a good shot, because someone told me this shop was looking (which I found a little hard to believe.) Turned out they had a posting up for a while so they haven't found the right person. I sent my stuff and they called me within 48 hours to set up the interview. Ok...so that feels good. But hopefully I can be the right fit because they are obviously being quite picky.

I've done insane research, I'm going to kill any skills or writing test, I even bought a new suit (on sale) which I look ridiculously classy in (thanks to my BFF who is the most stylish - and possibly hottest girl in the world.) I'm so excited. Gonna blow these guys' doors off.

Weren't you the one that posted from OWS?

What are you interviewing for? It better not be something that you get paid money to do based on your performance...

So do you have a question? Or is this just a general statement to the world?

Ya apparently he didn't read article #16 of the user agreement: "Board users may only ask questions and not make general topics on the forums."

Totally general statement. Yeah, prolly in violation of article whatever. Just freakin' nervous.
Like I ate a mason jar full of hairy caterpillars. Trying to shake them.

Want me to add a question? Best way to study for modeling questions? And what do you do if you don't know the industry you are handed very well.

Yes...I did and still do some volunteer work for OWS.

WAIT...my BFF, who I swear to god is probably the best looking human being I have ever known (male or female) is looking - like for a mate. She's turning 31 next month is sorta kinda thinking about settling down. But she doesn't know how to meet people except in clubs in the LES. She works in the art world and well...you know.

If you are awesome and sweet and like to cuddle, let me know.

I'm awesome and sweet, but I don't like to cuddle.

I'm just breaking your balls there is no article. Keep a cool head dude. If you don't got that then you got nothing.

I really want my BFF to date an investment banker, or possibly an accountant. Her last boyfriend was in the construction trades and he broke her heart.

I have this awful tendency to take too long to answer questions. I'm deathly afraid of awkward silences so I accidentally just keep going. Would it be really bizarre to surreptitiously hide my watch on the table, sort of behind or in my note pad to help me adhere to the 2 minute rule? I've been trying to practice in the mirror, but I can't seem to internalize the time clock? Or if they catch me glancing will that just come off as odd?

Do not do this. This firm is obviously looking for the right fit, you're going to have to be yourself and hope you're what they are looking for. Just going to have to relax and be as conversational as possible.

p.s. I like to cuddle

Send your friend to the Midwest. Should I pay you through Chase QuickPay or Paypal?

Nov 7, 2011

Ok. I'm glad I asked. Thanks brotha :)

BFF told me yesterday that she gets insanely nervous in interviews as well. She actually got her dream job about a year ago now and she said her voice actually quivered then cracked twice in that interview. So...so...nerve racking.
