Yikes!

The guy, Matt, whom I am visiting later this afternoon wants my references, so he can verify work ethic from previous employers. This is scary to me! I haven't worked in nearly 7 years, and back then I just took a job to keep busy. Most of the places I've worked before are closed now, or at least the people I worked for are gone.

K now I'm a little nervous. Looking at my resume, I am a boring, immature kid. I want to bring up my church service and seminary teaching. Seminary teaching took a lot of time, work, and dedication to do well. And it wasn't a "calling". It was an appointment. Anyway, I'll just go with the flow here... Maybe I'll have a beer before I go! Ok, just kidding.

Go for it Laura. Remember you worked for me for a while. You were always ontime and worked well with others. Your experience in retain and merchadising gives you experience in organization. You can do it, I know you can do anything you set your mind to. It will do you good financially and Brandt is old enough to leave at a sitter or day care for a few hours.

Just make sure you tell the interviewer you are going to school and most will work with your class hours.

GO FOR IT!!!!!!!!!!!

Good luck, girl! You can do this. My sage advice when walking into an interview...walk in with the confidence that the job is already yours, and the interview is just a formality. I don't mean act like a know-it-all. But confidence in yourself helps others feel confident in you. Also, the words "You won't regret hiring me, sir (or Ma'am) really help to clinch the deal. Best of luck to you!
