On Wednesday I attended my first job interview in over 4 years.   A long time to go for someone who has been encouraged to take the next career step by people I admire and trust.   The interview was one of my steps or goals for the next 18 months, a chance to push myself a little. How did it go?   I don’t think I really sold myself as the must have person.   I was applying for a job in a different Government Agency so as an outsider you really need to make an impression which I’m not sure I did. The real or primary purpose of the exercise was to start believing in myself and my abilities a little more.   I know that I come off to many as very self confident but in reality the opposite is the truth.   It’s the reason that I put way too much value in opinions others have of me.   It’s no fun finding out your limitations or what others perceive to be your limitations.   This was a small step in starting to believe in myself, regardless of if I get the job or not I believe that I have the abilities to do it and that is a positive step in the right direction.
