Ready for employment

Sunday, 15 September 2013

It’s funny how we seem to spend most of our working lives complaining about all things work-related and actually having to work. And then suddenly when we find ourselves out of work, we can’t wait to get back into it again! I spent the majority of the weekend prepping for the world’s most scary interview that I am due for in a couple of hours. It’s been so long since I interviewed but from memory, I am totally crap at it. I consider myself to be a fairly confident person, a go-getter of sorts but in an interview situation, I get that dry-mouthed nervousness and either go quiet or talk a mile a minute. I have that stomach churning, shaky hand feeling (I’m eating dry toast this morning and that’s about it). It’s early days so I am trying not to put too much pressure on myself but I’ll keep you posted either way! Since I have got offices, interviews and employment on my brain, I thought it would be good to post one of my favourite offices of all time. The Jute design studio in Mill Valley has got it all for me. Stunning natural light, beautiful timber elements and militant organisation. I can practically feel the productivity levels through the computer screen!

  2. SO true! Funny how that works. I wish you good luck in your job search. Job-hunting is probably one of my least favorite things to do EVER!

  3. Oh! Is it over by now? I'm thinking of you! Update! Update! And yes, best offices...those photos are great.

  4. Good luck!! I'm sure you'll do fine. If my office looked anything like those offices and less like a cubicle landscape in the sad world of corporate America, I might actually look forward to going to work everyday! :) xo

  6. We know you'll land something soon; if you had moved to CT, we would have hired you in an instant! But then again, you'd be heading into fall instead of spring... Beautiful office images - so wish ours were like that. Hang in there!

  10. Good luck with the interviews - I don't think they always bring out the best in us! I love an inspiring work space especially when it's super tidy too!

  14. So sorry I am weeks behind, my September was a blur with lots of work and my family visiting. Hope the interview went well. I know the feeling, interviewed for the first time in years this spring and was a nervous mess. My fingers are crossed that you will find something soon!
