And I'm so excited. My work closed about a month ago, they were basically pushed out of business by a big chain coffee shop and just weren't getting enough business. It sucks, but it's bitter sweet. I wanted to quit, and it was really hard on the two owners to keep it running while they lost so much money. Unfortunately for me it's the time of the year when EVERYONE is looking for work as they finish school.
ANYWAY! I applied at a bunch of places, and the best opportunity of the lot has scheduled an interview! It's for a receptionist / office assistant position at a not for profit counselling clinic, I'm so excited. I'm in school for Psychology / the social services and I really want to get it- honestly I didn't think I would get an interview, because I assumed there would be lots of applicants but HEY! I did. I have until the 15th to research their company and the programs they use, so that's good, I'm just really nervous. This is the PERFECT position, Monday - Friday, standard business hours, an amazing opportunity considering it's what I'm going to school for SO any tips on how to ace an interview? it's been three years, and my last position was at a coffee shop.
Should I bring a copy of my resume / cover letter? Obviously dress well (I need to buy new clothes, maybe I'll post what I'm thinking of getting), firm hand shake, eye contact and smiles. What do you think they'll ask question wise? I really want to impress here, can you tell?
