I hate job interviews.

I currently have one in the next few days and I am so bothered about my appearance.

Basically, I am interviewing for a position that would require me to take on two different roles, at separate times. And (I think) the dress code is so different for each.

I need an outfit that says “I am incredibly practical and ready to knuckle down and solve basic mechanical problems”.

But I also need to wear something that says “I can be that incredibly groomed professional bitch, who sorts out other people’s problems”.

I can’t think of a middle of the road appearance that would do for both. Especially as I always have doubts (no matter how misplaced) about my ability to do either job well.

About quirkycharm

I like to think that I have a certain quirky charm but I am probably being optimistic. Acquired taste, perhaps, which many don't acquire. This is about my fifth blog out there. My hosting companies kept going out of business or my IT exhusband kept hacking into them and I would move again. I don't do twitter, I barely do facebook, I don't try and 'monetize' my blog. I love my husband, my grown children and my job and this particular incarnation of oversharing my life comes at a time when I am the most content that I have ever been. I write always, sporadically during the good stuff and exhaustingly during the bad.

    It’s not your outfit that will knock ’em dead, it’s you. You’ve handled everything that life can throw at you. You’ll handle this too. Good luck.

    Such nice sentiments from friends. Thanks, guys!.
    Happening tomorrow and I’ve gone with khaki linen pants, white tailored shirt, black belt, black ballerina flats, white pearl studs and black pearl necklace. Hair in a fancy braid.
    Incredibly nervous, as always.
