So I had my interview this morning and it’s really hard to say how it went. I was extremely nervous and I think they could probably tell but I tried to pretend to be confident so who knows. Plus, I only had my last job for a month before getting laid off. Unfortunately, that job was my first job in marketing after working in other area of the television industry for a few years. So, even though I have solid experience in my industry, my marketing experience consists of one lonely month. Not too impressive. At least the hard part is over. Now for the fun part: following up and just…waiting. And waiting.

POST-INTERVIEW STRATEGY #5: If you got the job, go celebrate! If you didn’t, don’t despair, just start again.
Here’s a picture of me, waiting to get the call for a second interview:
