I have what feels like my first real, big-kid interview next week. I’ve had plenty of interviews before, but this is this first one that I feel like it matters. Tuesday evening I’ll be packing up and driving to Tulsa, OK to stay the night with my grandparent so I don’t have to wake up at an ungodly and drive. Plus, who wouldn’t want a little extra love and praise from grammy and pa right before an interview?

All week, I have spent my extra time researching the company on their Web site and asking those “in the know” what this company is really about. I also had an appointment with my Career Services counselor, Kiera Mann (Who is amazing by the way. You should make an appointment with her if you haven’t already.). Kiera had all sorts of great advice and suggestions for my portfolio, changes that I will most definitely be making before my interview next week. I also had some concerns with some particular questions I thought would be asked and she helped me walk through them and find the right answer for me. She even offered to look over my outfit if I brought it in for her to look at!

I wouldn’t say that I’m quite prepared yet, but I’m well on my way. Wish me luck!
