A little late and I know it's hard to do, but the best thing you can do is try to stay calm and be yourself (albeit your most polite self. Very Happy ) Hopefully you'll find something soon moy. Smile


Yea, was my own fault for various reasons. I knew I should've called up some friends to ask for advice about interviews. I was a serious job interview virgin until today Embarassed

If anything else, it was a good experience and I now know to be better prepared no matter what.

Don't worry about it. We all make mistakes. The difference is whether you learn from it or not. You're a smart guy, you'll nail the next interview.

Er... everyone has a first time I guess. Sorry your deflowering didn't go so well Embarassed

Seriously, don't get too down, as it often takes many failed attempts before landing a job you like.

Also, that cat looks so happy!

Interviews are a pain, unless you're really luck and always interview well you have to work really hard at them yet need to stay calm and be natural at the same time. Those are pretty much conflicting things so it's hard to do without practice. Smile

Saying that, get some practice, even if you need to get friends to do mock interviews it can help. Just getting used to sitting there all dressed up being peppered with questions helps a lot. Smile

One last thing: getting over the nervousness is half the battle.

The other half of the battle is not wetting your pants before you get over the nervousness.... Wink

Just received official army mail by a courier, and it turned out to be a dreaded ďForm No.8Ē letter. Meaning Iím drafted to "miluim" as of tomorrow morning. That's basically a short term emergency draft for "able body personal" (Any male who did boot camp, is under 51 and is not handicap).
Not only was this totally unexpected, it's also unknown how long the draft will last (Maximum of 1.5 months, but that doesnít make me feel any better).

moyism - I'm really really really sorry about the delay in payment. I'm was planning on getting the cash tomorrow and sending it, thanks to the army Iíll already be on a bus headed for Gaza strip at 8AM. ><
I'll try and get 'Net access from the base Iíll be positioned in before Iím sent to the field, and send you the money.

Iím going to a war zone tomorrow. Wish me luck.

S'okay man, shit happens. No rush. It'll be waiting for you, all packed and ready anytime Wink

Good luck though Random Otaku. I sincerely hope nothing bad happens to you while on the field and that it'll be a "breeze."
