    Job Interview

    I'm scheduled for a phone interview with a company where I've wanted to work since I was a kid. It's an early interview, 7 am, but I'm a morning person, so that's all good. I've gone over the job posting like 8 times, and tried to think of every question they can possibly toss my way. Now, I'm starting to get nervous, while I have been excited up until the last couple of hours. So, umm, wish me luck.

    good luck with the interview.
    My boss said to dress for the job I want, not the one I have.

    Now, I'm waiting for my meeting with H.R. about my blue tights and cape.

    Best of luck!
    Stay safe, keep the shiny side up and never pass up a chance to go after that horizon.

    Good luck... don't forget to interview them... "I know you want me, tell me why I want you." (But not too arrogantly)

    In the end, regrets rarely come from things done, but from things not even tried.

    What Tom said. When doing phone interviews, I score it as a big positive when the interviewee is interested in finding out facts and details about the opening and company. It shows they're looking for a position and not just a job.

    I definitely have my list of questions ready to go. My last phone interview I asked a lot of questions that the other person kept saying he'd have to look into (and this was going to be my supervisor). Sadly, I never heard back from them. Rather sucky that they take the time, yet never give any info on what happened to the job. But, it does show me that I am glad I didn't get the job there. I currently have a job, and a good one, just not sure it's the right job for me. So, while I want something new, I am in that nice position where I can be picky and find a job that will suit me and the employer well, not just take any job that comes along.

    It's nice to hear about someone with a job and interviewing for a possibly better job instead of no job hoping for any job. You are very lucky or probably just very good. Good luck with the job interview and hope what you wish for is the best choice for you.

    Good luck and remember to put on your warm interested voice for over the phone - its harder to tell how people read you (one) without the visual cues!
