nervous excitement.....job interview

I have my first in-person job interview in the Minneapolis area!!!

I will be interviewing with ATK for a position using my aerospace engineering degree. The interview is this coming Monday! That is very soon for me to brush up on everything I learned in school and work! It has been almost 4 years since I have used that part of my brain and it frightens me to think how much I have lost.

I do believe that it will come back once I use it again but I just don't want to look like an idiot at the interview and I would really like to get the job.

It is good that I have Bryan to remind me that I have had 5 interviews in my life for aerospace jobs and every one of them offered me a job. Hopefully I will be 6 for 6 come next week.

You can pray for whatever you want for me. Pray for knowledge to return. Pray for calmness. Pray that I would continue to know clearly what God wants me to do with my time. Just pray cause I know I will be praying a lot over the next week.

You'll be fine. Most interviews aren't that technical anyway. Make sure you have a good story about a work or school conflict in your back pocket in case they ask. Is this a part time position?

Hi Raquel,
This is Maggie from Honduras. I periodically look at your blog but don't know what I did with you e-mail address. Mine is sixroths@embarqmail.com. Anyway, I just wanted you to know that I would be praying for you as you go to your interview. I've been away from Speech Pathology for 14 years now but I think that if you have the desire to learn and brush up on things and they see that then you will do fine.
I'll be praying.
Maggie

Thanks for the encouragement. The interview is for a full time position and is at 2:30pm. I plan to talk with the interviewer about part-time options but I hope to get a job offer before I negotiate my hours.
