Oh My Word!

I have been slacking! I promised you all that I would let you know as soon as possible what happened with my phone interview! Well, I got sidetracked with the usual--gym, eating, sleep, texting, catching up on television shows via Hulu, which by the way, Bones was AMAZINGGG!!! Oh, and I was starting to pack, buying a membership to a tanning salon (gotta take advantage of the student price while I still can), and gym-ing it up...again. And again. I have two boxes packed, thanks to the bubble wrap provided by my sister-in-law, Kathy, and the boxes provided by Megan. Thanks girls!

Okay, now that I've built up the anticipation, the phone interview... I was kinda appalled scared of how nervous I'm sure I sounded, but it went well I think! I was told via email to phone the HR guy yesterday, so I did, but it went to voicemail. I left a message (obviously), and I was prepared when I was calling him. But when he called me back, I was a ball of nerves, to say the least! I stumbled over several answers, because let's be honest--phone interviews are hard! I'm a good in-person interviewer, but you can't judge reactions via phone conversation. However, that being said, I got asked to come in for an in-person interview Tuesday! Any advice on what to wear?? I don't have a suit, but if necessary, I may be able to purchase one, I suppose. I'm just unsure how formal the work environment is these days. I know that my friend that works there dresses just business casual. Hmm...

I'm excited/nervous/giddy/anxious! But it couldn't have come at a better time. I graduate in 2 days! and my parents and siblings are coming in town tomorrow. And of course I still have to be up by 6am and have my check-in with Pleasants at 10am. My mom and sis should be here by noon. I know this weekend is going to be hella-busy, so please excuse me if I'm not prompt with updates until Monday. So until then, have a good weekend. And of course good luck to Stacy who is competing tomorrow--you're going to be AMAZING girl! Have a blast!!



  1. Congrats!! A white or blue button down that doesn't show any cleavage with grey/black/brown slacks and heels is a perfect combo. Professional and no one can say anything bad about it :) You'll look clean and ready to take the job.

  2. Thanks for the shout out, Liz!! You're the best!

  3. Happy graduation! Hope everything went well, I'm sure it was exciting. I'll be a mess and I'm sure I'll cry =) GREAT job with the interview, the in person is just a way to phsyically show them what you're all about.

    Interview I'd say yea, suit if you have it, or nice skirt/dress and heels (weather is appropriate for that!)

  4. Congrats on the graduation! This is so exciting. I hope you have an awesome outfit and shoes planned for tomorrow. I want to see pictures. :)

  5. Thank you all for the kind words and thoughts! My mom and I went to Ann Taylor (since I get a discount there as well for working at Loft) after my graduation and she bought me a suit jacket and dress. I just need to get heels tomorrow! Pictures will definitely be posted ASAP!

    And thanks for all the suggestions and advice. YOU ALL ARE AMAZING!!
