How did your First Job Interview Go...?
28 Apr 09
I personally believe that getting cold feet or feeling nervous during an interview is just normal. And I have been interviewed for a job position several times in the past already. If I recall it right, my first job interview came 6 months after graduation and almost a month after I took the CPA (Certified Public Accountant) Board examination. I was absolutely nervous since that was my first interview and I know I had to make it good so I could get the position or the job vacancy. The interviewer was quite strict and looked so serious while asking about me. But before I was interviewed by the firm's Personnel Head, I was given a written test which I was able to pass. In less than a week, I received a notice from the same company and fortunately, I was hired by them. I stayed with the company for more than 5 years. It could have been longer had it not for the retrenchment program initiated by the firm then. Left with no choice, I had to look for my next employment and during that time, I decided to apply for a job with the national government. Anyway, I'm with my third employment now as a financial analyst with a local bank for more than 4 years. However, we are expecting a notice of separation to be sent to us soon, maybe before the 3rd quarter starts. Regards, friend.

My first job interview was a school program to prepare us for the real world. Since it's just a mock interview and the interviewers were my teachers, I did well and score high marks. But the real world is so different! My first real interview was a disaster! I can't remember the answers, forgetting halfway during the interview and stared at my interviewers with a clueless gaze, wondering, who the heck are they? I wasn't supposed to be that nervous!
