Here I am AGAIN, about to go into my THIRD interview.  I didn’t sleep last night. I’m exhausted from getting three kids around for school this morning, and trying to make myself look presentable. I’m nervous once again, but this time I’m over-qualified for the position. If he doesn’t hire me, than there must be something wrong with me.

Who knew interviewing could be so difficult. Who knew staying home with your children for the last seven years would be so frowned upon. No I don’t have five years of experience in writing, managing, or selling, but I can you cook a meal, carry on a conversation, and play Guess Who all at the same time. Can you? No I don’t know what my strength and weaknesses are because for the last seven years I haven’t thought about myself, but I do know my boys think I’m a Superwoman so that says something right?

Yes I get that I’m not newly out of college, and my boobs are saggier than the 24 year old that you’re about to interview, but guess what? I have a lot of life experience. I have lived all over the world, and I can adapt to just about any situation. I’m a fast learner, and I have my college degree. Sorry for never using it. I’m pretty sure thousands of dollars and hours of my time were wasted getting it, but I do have it.

I do have experience in changing diapers and I can make my boys laugh on their worst days. I can make the best pb&j sandwich you ever tasted, and my pancakes are ALMOST as good as Cracker Barrel’s. I can make the best paper airplanes, and, according to my seven year old, I can sing so amazingly I should try out for American Idol. I can play one song on the guitar, and I’m also really good at coloring.

I feel like I’m slowly sinking here, so some help would be nice. Please hire me. 🙂

One thought on “Interviewing

  1. I can so relate to this. Staying home with my kids was the best decision I’ve made for them but it set me back professionally. It really brings me down when I get regected. All those years in school….
