For those of you who know me you may or may not know that I get very nervous about certain things - public speaking, tests, and a variety of other things. One thing that causes me to be extremely nervous are job interviews. They always have and probably always will, even when I know I am 100% qualified for the position and prepared for the interview. I get sweaty and start talking too fast. Obviously I am not horrible at it because I have received some decent job offers in my time, but still it doesn't negate the nerves I always get beforehand.
About a month ago I was contacted by our Corporate Tax Director regarding a position that opened up in our corporate tax group. He told me he wanted me to apply for the position if I was interested. Of course I was interested and applied as soon as it posted! I was finally contacted by the HR person last week to set up some phone interviews. What initially started out as 3 phone interviews has turned into an all day interview with 4 of the top Tax people at our company at the corporate headquarters in NJ next week! As if that wasn't enough I have an interview tomorrow with one of our local Tax Directors! Needless to say I am extremely nervous about this whole ordeal. To make things a little more exciting we turned my trip next week into a family trip (as if I didn't have enough to worrry about). Our corporate headquarters are approximately 60 miles from Mr. ESPN's parents' house. When Grandma found out I was coming back she offered to buy some tickets for her favorite granddaughters to come too. We all fly in on Wednesday - drop the girls at Grandma and Grandpa's house and then Mr. ESPN and I head to NJ for two nights. While I interview Mr. ESPN plans on hanging out with his cousin who lives in NJ. Friday we will head back to PA and spend the weekend with his parents and the girls. And as the kicker I get to spend Mother's Day on a 4 1/2 hour airplane ride with Chatty, Bia and Mr. ESPN! All you mom's out there are jealous huh??
