Interview Update

Well, the interview went well but was ultimately just target practice for me. Apparently they were looking for an intern or freelancer, and the latter would be great but holding two jobs down has never been easy for me. (Especially when the first one sucks all the life and energy out of you.)

What the interview did provide for me was a sense of self, a renewal of self-confidence if you will. I had forgotten what my portfolio looked like and was pleasantly surprised that it was still up to date and didn’t need tweaking. Updating my resume wasn’t so much a chore but a reminder of how far I’ve come since graduating college. Being able to talk design with two other young designers without stumbling made me feel taller, even when walking out of that gorgeous studio knowing I wasn’t going to work there.

The interview also supplied me with two other leads. I’m not expecting anything, but the practice alone is worth it.

what sort of job are you interviewing for?

Graphic Design position. Was a designer for 2 1/2 years but the money sucks for gds in BR. Still, I miss the hell out of it.

Just think of it as good practice. Keep those interviewing skills sharp! I still think you should look outside of Baton Rouge!
