I dragged myself out of my warm bed, showered, dressed in my new pants and sweater (one that was not in the pics from yesterday's post) and headed to my interview. I told the receptionist that I had a 10:30 appointment with Ms. V. She made a phone call then informed me that Ms. V was not in today. What? Oh, no...
The woman I spoke with last week was there. She said Ms. V had an emergency, but she rounded up an export supervisor for me to speak with instead. Again, I did my best to enthusiastically sell myself. I think I'm getting better with each interview. I really would love to land this job. I'm excited to learn the freight forwarding side of the business. (It doesn't hurt that I would be earning almost as much as I was making at the container shipping company.) The export supervisor liked me, but I still have to interview with the export manager. I'm waiting for a call to schedule the next one.
I'm running out of appropriate clothes. Most of the new ones I bought are not good enough. I want to dress a bit nicer than I would on a typical workday. Maybe I could put my suede jacket over a blouse...or the new blazer I just bought...or maybe I should shop for a new interview suit. I could probably find something for around $150.
