I had interview today for an office management position at CSU. I feel like it went well. I was confident in my answers; I presented myself well; I think I conveyed that I have what it takes to fill the role. As I began to realize that interviewers seemed a bit worried about my age, I tried to reassure them by saying that I am aware that I am one of the youngest applicants (to which one of the women blurted out a “yeah,” as if she was surprised I had the audacity to come to the interview), but I have done a lot with my life. I said I was surprised to see that I was one of the youngest individuals taking the state administrative assistant test, but when I got my test score showing that I ranked #1 of all the testers, I felt I wasn’t so out of place.
All in all, I felt prepared and confident. And I looked great! :)
I invested in a suit this week, special for the occasion. And I’m glad I did. Although I was much dressier than my interviewers, I do not feel that I was overdressed. I can just imagine how young they would think I look if I wasn’t in a blazer.
(my spiffy new shoes: Bandolino kitten heel pumps)
You’d give me a job, wouldn’t you?
