My final week!

Well, I am fast approaching the end of my time as an interviewer. What valuable lessons will I take with me? First, I must never be afraid of just picking up the phone and speaking. Second, I need to always be prepared and third smile while talking on the phone. You really can hear the difference.
I really liked working as an interviewer. I learned to keep myself out of the interview. I learned to listen and not ask questions that influence the speaker. Its really interesting how we manipulate the conversations that we have with other people.
I have met some really nice people as well. I hope to stay in touch with at least two of them. They seem to be really nice women. I have tons of work left to do. Not only do I interview but I transcribe the interviews as well. That is the time consuming part. Tonight I came home early because yesterday we were at the Nordic Gardening Convention and then we went to a birthday party and I am totally exhausted. The time changed and I had an interview this morning!

This morning I had a great interview. I am actually so excited about the project and the company that I will be disappointed if I do not get this job. I will have to grow my company slowly but I have to find a way to support myself otherwise its too much pressure on me and I need time. I want to do this right and I don't want to rush into anything.

Now, I have to crash!

Thanks for reading!

Philips Wake Up The Town

Here is another installment of the Philips Wake Up The Town series...Its touching the way that Philips uses the actual life experiences of the people but interesting how they only show the people waking up in the morning to this glowing lamp. Its quite clever and very good.

New Job!!

I haven't really talked about my most recent job interview because it just sort of happened with out me being super prepared or super stressed out about it. Daniel was looking at job ads for people who speak American and he found this market research company. I sent in my CV and they called me back immediately and I set up my interview. Had the interview on Friday and this morning got the email saying they where happy to offer me the position.
I will be conducting market research a.k.a interviews for American companies. Its project based but I am still moving forward with my business plans so having this type of job is perfect!!! HAPPY!!
