Wish Me Luck!

So after months of sending out resume's I finally have a job interview tomorrow.. and can I say I am more than slightly nervous about it. I haven't had to DO an interview for years... (last one I had was on my mobile in the bowls of an IKEA.. my phone dropped out on my future boss.. TWICE! ...awkward...) and this one is more than just an interview.. it's a four hour assessment. It's with a Book processing company that gets them ready for dispatch to libraries. SO I will be covering, barcoding, binding.. that sort of thing..I will be taught by some lady who has been doing it for years. If I get proficient at it I will be expected to do about 30 books an hour.. which is 2 minutes per book... pressure! Hopefully I wont find this work as difficult as the guy who rang me made it sound. *blubber...* 
Anyway.. I was zoned out on mega painkillers (having got my period...you know what mine are like) curled up in the foetal position and I get the phone call.. so he proceeds to conduct a mini interview over the phone.... err...
Apparently I must have impressed him enough for him to ask me to come in for a training and assessment session.. WOOHOO! I am sure I could have been way more articulate.. but anyway.. Tomorrow I have to be up with the birds to be at their warehouse, 50 minutes drive away, at 8am. 
At least I don't have to figure out what to wear as he told me just wear shorts, t/shirt and sneakers. Hubby asked me WHAT t/shirt am I going to wear... why? is my HELLO KITTY T/shirt not the way to go? maybe my shirt with CHEEKY MONKEY emblazoned across my boobs is not appropriate either...? I will go for the tame plain t/shirt I think.. lol..at least until I know I have the job...
Wish me luck :) 


  1. How exciting. I am sure you will do really well.
    And I love that you can get away with wearing shorts and a T.
    Keep us updated, cant wait to find out how it all went

  2. Oooo! Exciting! Good luck! It sounds similar to my job actually. We processed books the same way, except we sent them to book stores instead of libraries. You can do it! Once you get the hang of it, it's a breeze. :)

  3. You can do it! I might also suggest that, since they worked so well the first time, maybe going to the assessment interview high on painkiller meds mightn't be a bad idea.

    Just sayin'.

  4. I'm sure you'll impress the socks off of them. Proceed like Caesar: You came,
    You saw,
    You conquered!

  5. Keeping everything crossed for you!!
