I have a job interview today!

It would totally be the perfect job! It's at the uni I'm starting at, doing networking things which I can do with my eyes closed. It's 16 hours a week to fit around my studies!
It really would be PERFECT!


So I'm taking diazepam to cope with the anxiety of the interview, but I'm quite worried I'll go to pieces!
There's a technical test as well as part of it, which I know I can ace... but I'm so confused and spacey at the moment!

If I can only force that hypomaniac euphoric state where I believe I can do anything, I'll ace it!
I don't really know how to force myself into one state from another though.

I'll just keep thinking very positive things!
I'm going to treat myself to lunch in town before it as well!

Good luck to you my lovely Djonma!! -- Just take in the knowledge that you *can* do all of these things, and be your warm special self. If they don't grab you with both hands it's them that's the loopy one's!!

Hope you have a great lunch too!!

I was very good and didn't spend lots of money on lunch (darn I wanted to though... hate that money spending mania drive!).
I got a nice cheese and tomato sandwich, which was nice.

Interview was fine, test was really easy. Now I just have to provide references.
Though they want a work reference... I've not worked in over a year. The last place I worked won't remember me they have so many casual contractors.
The place before fired me for being disabled and were horrible to me...

It's so long since I've worked at a decent place I don't think I can get a reference!
But they want one!

Gah!

Hi Djonma,

Don't worry about asking your last place of employment. -- You'll have done so great in your test and interview that all they'll need is something that says "yes you're trustworthy" etc -- and unless you nicked off with the company takings, your last employer will be able to at least come up with the basics of a reference! -- Employers get asked to supply these all the time and they'll be quite used to writing a reference for someone that they don't quite remember -- and let's face it, that's not such a bad thing as in big companies or ones with high staff turnover being remembered very often means a person stuck in the mind for all the wrong reasons! You just get in touch with them and ask them if they will provide a reference for you -- I even like it when people tell me what the prospective employer is looking for, and this makes it much easier to tailor the reference to the job specs (a trick I picked up from a colleague a few years ago who never wrote a reference unless such details were provided -- I don't take it quite that far!).

Good luck!!!

dj,
SO glad the interrview went well.  i agree with rosie:  if they don't select you they must be the ones who are sick.
 
i'lll give you a job refenence.  when i was able to work i had a fancy title, corner office, secretary - all the things necessay for an executive.  of course all of that was 16 yrs ago. sad
 
seriously, don't worry about a reference.  unless it is a personal reference, such as from a supervisor, almost all companies give dates of employment and salary.  little or nothing more.  here in the states severral yrs ago there were a few very expensive lawsuits in which employers gave poor references that could not be substantiated.  it seems that the minimum that i stated above is now the norm. 
 
i waish you well.
