High heels, fishnet stockings & resume

They said "Dress up"  for the interview. What do you think?


Quote du jour: Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage.
-Anaïs Nin

Site du jour: An article on what to do if you don't have a job, or at least don't have the job that you want. I thought this article was the typically chipper/blithely depressing type of article: "Can't find a job? Well then, do something you love instead!" But actually, upon reading it, the author made a few good points.

Got a job interview tomorrow, so I thought I'd spend today productively, i.e. going into a tizzy, dithering, blathering, panicking, and rushing around trying to make myself look good. (The first four activities aren't going to make me look good, but I like to get them out of the way before the actual interview if possible. Doesn't add confidence if the interviewer watches you dither.)

In addition, I want to put together the interview outfit and see if I can make myself look like a respectable, confident, hard-hitting go-getter employable woman. If I want to sell myself, I suppose that means I should try wearing high heels and fishnet stockings.


Exercise du jour: I'm getting really tired of typing in "Elliptical" in here. At the same time, I don't want to try stressing the knee out and limping into the interview tomorrow. I think I'll try 30 minutes on the elliptical and add a couple miles of walking. See how Damn Knee feels about that. Fail. Too much to do! Maybe I should make the To Do list a bit shorter in the future.

Good luck! Hope it's your dream job and they hire you on the spot.
Might want to reconsider the fishnets though. ;-)

Praying all goes well, with the interview and with the knee.

On the other hand, the fishnets will make you stand out from any other candidates...

Good luck with the interview!

Perhaps you can learn to dither productively.

I hope my luck will rub off on you: I just got hired last week for a second job, and was offered it at the interview. (Also, I hope you get offered a job where you don't need a second job.)

Do you want this job? If so, let's say it's yours! Fishnets or no, you will rock the interview!

Kick major behind on the interview! And if not, just drink yourself into a dizzy and start fresh the next day.
