Perhaps I was a little naive in thinking that I wouldn’t have any problems getting a job right after graduate school, but it’s been over 2 months and I haven’t found anything yet. I’ve heard stories of it taking 6 months, 9 months, a whole year for some people to find a job after getting a master’s degree so I’m only freaking out a little. However, I mentioned on Wednesday that I have gotten a few interviews lately, and after successfully completing a phone interview, I was invited to an in-person interview this past Friday with a local Girl Scouts office. If you know anything about me, it should be that I am extremely passionate about women’s empowerment and girls’ leadership development, and I would love to work for an organization like GS that does just that. Plus, those infamous cookies! It’s not exactly public health but I have many passions and this is just one of them. So anyway, this is what I wore to my interview.
I didn’t want to go ‘all-black suit’ because I read somewhere that it is intimidating or something ridiculous like that but I thought it looked great and I felt really confident, so I went with it! I followed my own advice about faking a suit when you don’t have one. Also, the second I laid eyes on this top I loved it. It feels so grown up to me, and the neutral colors in the floral print will go with both black and brown.
I’m pretty sure I crushed the interview questions and that it went very well. I should hear back within the next few weeks about whether I got the job or not. *Fingers still crossed*
