Getting My Foot in the Door

22 Jul

Not 12 hours after I boo-hooed about not getting any love with my job applications, I got an email for an interview!  I will be interviewing for the position of Communication Specialist with the Broadcast and Distance Learning Department of Gwinnett County Public Schools on Thursday, July 31.

Based off the description on the job posting, it seems like something I would be good at and would like.  It’s basically producing programs for the school system’s 24/7 educational television channel and supervising video-conferencing for distance learning.

I’m just so excited to have a chance and I did it without having an “in” to help me get my foot in the door.  Every job I ever had I got because I knew someone who knew someone.  Not this time.  I just can’t even believe it!

Now, I just have to prepare!  I have a new suit and heels all ready to be worn but my brain needs a re-boot.  Luckily, Andrew has a bunch of professional advice on interviewing from his recruiters so I’m going to be reviewing all of that but when it really comes down to it, they either like you or they don’t.  We’ll see if it’s a match or not!
