I mentioned on Twitter, that I have my first job interview since 2010. Seriously. 2010.
I have a first stage interview for a job on March 24! YAY!

So, what’s the first thing I do, ten days before my first-stage, written interview?
I panic about what I’m going to wear, of course. I don’t know if I’m going to talk to anyone at length, or what’s going to be involved in the written interview, but I figured that there’s no harm in being well-dressed.
Of course, I only own one actual outfit kind of a thing – pants, a shirt, and a sweater (or, a sweater/fake shirt thing, too) – so I decided to go for a dress.
For the love of all that’s holy, please ignore my hair in these photos. It’s in that horrible too-short-to-get-it-cut, too-long-to-sit-properly stage.
The Interview Clothes
Complete outfit: shoes, dress, belt (you can’t see the belt), and jacket.
Shoes, dress and Obi-belt.
Shoes, and dress without belt.
And, just for the fun of it? A booty shot. If I didn’t have the belly in front, I’d be a Kardashian with an ass like that.
Now, the important question is: should I wear the dress with or without the belt? While I like the fact that the belt’s covering over the join between the skirt and the shirt, when the belt’s not on, the shirt’s got that lovely floaty-looking look to it.
And the shoes? I love the shoes, but: should I take my basic black heels and change into them before I go in? Just because, y’know. Heels. They’re not, like, crazy-high heels. They’re pointy-toed, maybe 2.5″-3″ high. If these shoes were black, I’d stay with these ones. But because they’re nude, it kind of just makes it look like I’m barefoot.
I have a job interview.
I’m kind of panicking.
I’m kind of excited.
And of course there’s also the: what the hell do I do when I get to the second interview?! I’m gonna have to come up with a second outfit…
And of course, if I get the job, what the hell am I going to do if they try to find a uniform for me?
The job’s for a parking attendant at a car park in town. It’ll require a full uniform. I’m almost having panic attacks at the idea of them not being able to get a uniform to fit me, and I’ve not even had my first interview yet.
Oy.Let's get social:
