Two interviews in one week with the same blazer worn two different ways!
I was very nervous and excited for my first interview for a career position since graduating Berkeley. I wanted to look professional and decided to wear a suit that had belonged to my mom. Her closet is full of suits and I opted to take this one and had it altered to fit my shorter frame. I love the pleats in the blazer: It makes this suit look very feminine. For some reason I stuck to wearing black and green for both interviews and it just kind of happened. I should say it is because of St. Patrick's Day, but I had been wanting to wear the top since purchasing it in December and the wrap dress is one of my favorites because of the print (and color.)
The first interview went okay. I made it to the second round as a finalist, but overall I felt I could have elaborated on the answers I had given. I could have done a better job talking about myself, but it felt very weird, almost like bragging. Then I was notified on Wednesday that I would have another interview on Friday for another position I applied for. I opted for something a little more whimsical like the print of this wrap dress and the Betsey Johnson panda charm necklace. I felt super confident in this dress and the light amount of red lip stain on my lips gave me an edgier look. I felt I took the second interview head-on and dominated! I might be facing a dilemma later if I am chosen for both positions after the second round of interviews, but I would be pretty excited since I could have my pick! I am very optimistic since I improved my interviewing skills in one session and I am looking forward the new opportunities both positions would entail.
Hope you all had a great week (less nerve-wrecking than mine) and thanks for reading!
