I found a grocery store where I could park and put my make up on (I wanted fresh make up for the interview!), change into my heels, put my suit coat on...and read...boy am I glad I brought my Kindle with me!
Finally, it's time to head to the interview. I walk in and immediately get a tour of the building and an explanation of the different programs located within this building. My interview went well (I think!) and long - 1.5 hours long! I'm not getting my hopes up about it though, because they are holding interviews for 2 whole days, so there's a lot of competition for this one job. I'm really glad I completely redid my portfolio, because for the first time ever, they actually took the time to look through my portfolio from cover to cover! Usually they either completely ignore it unless I specifically point something out, or they may flip through a couple of pages and be done. Not this time. They all looked at every page, and pointed out to the other members of the interview committee things that they noticed that they really liked.
In the middle of my interview a really loud alarm sounded - which scared the bejeebers out of all of us - to alert us that there was a thunderstorm warning. Just before the interview ended, the storm hit! Of course, so now, in my heels (which, by the way, refuse to actually stay on my feet!) I had to make a mad dash through the rain to my car.
Now begins my 3.5 hour drive home. It
I did see a very pretty double rainbow between downpours, though!
I finally made it home at about 6:00. It's been a long day,
I think I'm ready for bed!
