Interviewing

It has been a while since I have interviewed for any job, three years to be precise, so when the chance came to apply for a position within the company for which I would have to go through a formal interview process, I jumped at it.

Me being me of course I had to go through the net looking at interviewing tips and tricks. As luck would have it, I had already saved a link on interview tips to my favorites so it was really quite a simple matter of brushing up on what to expect and how to make or break it during an interview. It was during this search and find process that I realized that some people don’t actually take the time to prepare well for an interview. If you are out there looking for a job and if your CV and cover letter has managed to get you to the point where you have been asked to interview for the position, then the next logical step should be preparing yourself mentally for that interview.

For people who are interested, here’s the link:

On a separate note, I am also actively engaging with other people in the area that I am targeting, trying to get a feel on what is expected, what are the long term prospects and decide on whether this is what I really want to be doing.

Yesterday I had a really interesting conversation with my boss. It was interesting because somehow we ended up discussing how people evaluate their lives when they are faced with their own mortality and as my boss put it “no one ever says that they should have worked more, its always I wish I had lived more”.  This thought influences my future career choice as much as it influences how I want to live my personal life. And perhaps it is this that finally gave me the courage to apply for a position in a different field than the one I am engaged in now.

I wish you all the courage to hunt for the profession that would ignite your passion until your work and play becomes the same thing 🙂
