Last week I went for my first job interview in years and I actually managed to get the job! The role is for a charity so less corporate than my previous jobs and places that I’ve interviewed at in the past but I still wanted to look smart. Zara is great for stylish work appropriate pieces that stand the test of time so I turned to my trusty grey zip pencil skirt that I’ve had for about 6 years and threw on a boucle jacket (both from Zara) over a pussybow shirt from Dorothy Perkins. My loafers were from Linzi which is one of my favourite places for reasonably priced but decent quality shoes.
The interview was quite informal, the contract is for 3 months and the team seem really nice but I’m still very nervous about starting a new job after being out of work for nearly 9 months. I suffer from fear of the unknown and I’m really hoping that I’ll be able to get the hang of things quite quickly and that it won’t trigger bad head pains. It’s certainly going to be a shock to the system for the first week or so!
