What Happens When They Call!!

Wednesday 12th June 2019 | By MaryAnn

First things first, I just love working in an organization that impacts the community positively. An organization I will grow personally and professionally. In most of my application this was a key criterion.

It was around 10.00 am when the call came in. On the other side of the line was a very mellow and soothing voice- truly made for customer care. My mind was still fuzzy as I had just woken up. However, this sounded important.

“Hello, I am speaking to Maryann. This is Lorna; I am calling you from company X. We received your application and we are pleased to invite you for an interview on Tuesday from 9 o’clock.”

This whole time I was holding my breath. Wait, was my hearing okay or have I just landed an interview? I could not believe it.!!

Finally!!! I was ecstatic. I had made dozen of applications. But since, I noted down some pointers from the phone conversation. I quickly checked my email and learnt which organization it was and what position I had applied for.

One thought about the interview, and a cold chill would ran through my spine. I wondered how I would answer the questions. What if I don’t know the answer? What value can I possibly add without any work experience? Will I meet their standards?   I wondered how I would answer the questions. What if I don’t know the answer?

This was completely new territory. I felt uneasy, anxious and was worried. I guess no one prepares you for this stage. I didn’t know what to expect in the interview room, how to answer those tough questions or what to wear.

If only I had someone to guide me through. I needed the skills and principles on how to go about an interview. Like me, possibly you’ve just landed a job interview after a long wait but you feel unprepared Join Almah Interview Ready on 19th to 21st of June to gain clarity and become Interview Ready.
