Reading, reading, reading.
Preparing, preparing, preparing.
Interview, interview, interview!

Going to London tomorrow. Two interviews booked with companies and a few meetings with recruiters.
Wish me luck!

brain freeze

So I had my first telephone interview about two weeks ago. It was a very short one, about 15 min, with a manager at the company. I got what you could call a brain freeze. And not the kind caused by ice scream.

He asked how my current role relates to the one I applied for. The problem here was partly that I had only got a very vague job description and it was for a job in online marketing. Another think he asked was what I know about the company and what they do.

I had been reading up and I even had that interview with Google long time ago which dealt with a few of the same things. But being a new field and different business lingo I kind of choked. Not good at all.
I did, what I in Swedish would call word pooping. I just did not have a great line of thoughts. Not at all.

For next time I just need to be more prepared.

between two jobs

I am officially unemployed.

Had my last day of work on Monday. With mixed feelings. I always joked that I wanted to make an out of office message that read "I have left and joined a different circus".

Of course I did not have the guts. I still want to have nice references. But I do miss some of my co-workers that brightened up my day.

Now it's "vacation time"!
Well, of course not really. I do have the option of sleeping in a bit and not having to get up at 6am. But of course there is that constant feeling of what I need to do to get a job.
However, compared to last time of unemployment I am much more confident now that I will get a job much faster.
