2 Week Torture

I heard from the potential future employer today. Instead of a yay or nay...I gotta,

Recruiter: "Can we fly you out to Kansas City June 2nd?"

Me: "Sure, no problem!"

Recruiter: "Ok. We'll have our travel people give you a call to set it all up. They'll probably have a car waiting for you at the airport to take you to the office."

Me: "Okay, great!"

Recruiter: "Alright, well you will be getting an email soon. Have a great one!"

That was it. Didn't know why I was going, what I needed to bring, how long I was staying...anything. I was caught a little off guard.

After calling Mo with the news, she strongly suggested I call back to get more details.

And I did. Maybe I shouldn't have....'cause now I feel as if I need to throw up, or spend time in the bathroom, or scream out of pure and utter chaos and craziness.

So, on June 2nd, I will be interviewing with the Sr. Manager, their director, an account manager and the VP over that channel.

Now, I have some sick friends that find this exciting. I have some sick friends that think I have nothing to worry about. Meanwhile, the next 2 weeks for me are going to be ridiculous!

No amount of good words seem to help. I know, the minute I step into the room, I'll put all the nerves, low self-esteem, concerns and worries away. But until then, they are in full force!

I'd be like you, wanting to throw up. I don't get off on stuff like that. No thanks.

That said, I know you and you'll put your best foot forward, just as I always do. You'd not have made it as far as you have at your age, w/out being able to do what you need to do.

I have faith.

It will be fine! And, if you can, get to Country Club Plaza- my favorite place in KC.

I completely understand. Absolutely. SO - call me. I'll email the number.

First - I hate it when recuriters don't give you the info up front. That is just plain rude. They do it all the time, but it's still just plain rude.

Second - you're right, you'll be fine once you are "on". It's the build-up that kills. I know. I do it to myself every single flippin' time. Just realize you're gonna do it and don't fight it. The fighting it is when it gets ugly.

Good luck darlin'. AND CALL ME!!!!

You will do fine, but until the day comes *passes vodka and plain milk chocolate!*

Oh, sweet pea - you know you will be fine! You are so smart, you know exactly what they want to hear, and you had to interview with Morrigan who is the most tough cookie in the business. You have it! Don't worry, you will do fine. We are all crossing our fingers and toes for you. Like Morrigan said, just pretend you are training. Everyone that you are meeting with are your equals, just because they have a Director of VP title doesn't mean anything - just be your natuaral wonderful self and you will do fine!

When you go for the interview, kick the door in, wave a half-empty bottle of tequila around, and holler "I'M your mama now, bitches!"

That way they'll know that you're assertive & self-confident.

Trust me on this one :-)
