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!
