Last week I had two interviews in one day.
One awesome marketing position – which I was a just a wee bit under-qualified for (sarcasm).
And a call-center job – which I was overqualified for.
I didn’t get either.
But I did learn two things:
1) Never schedule two interviews in one day.
2) I need more marketing experience.
And just the subtle realization that gone are the days when a college student can start from scratch at an entry-level position with no experience.
So, I’m setting out to work on volunteer marketing projects.
In fact, I have a marketing internship interview this Thursday with a great organization. I really hope I get it.
Send me your well wishes – I’ll need them – and let’s hope for the best.
In the mean time, do you need help with a marketing project? Let me know!
What’s your best interviewing advice?
