I’m taking a short break in what has been a very long (yet good) week.
I’ve been working on a project all week on location in the Inland Empire (an area aprox. one hour east of Los Angeles). This was the project I was working on most of the month, but due to communication issues, we needed to rework the whole project, which was best done onsite. It is going really well (their gala is tonight where the 10 minute documentary-style video will be shown), but needles to say I want to get home and eat my own food again and not sleep in a hotel.
I would have been out here Monday, but my surprise news from Sunday was that I had a job interview via Skype Monday afternoon. The position was for a video post production supervisor for an online women’s magazine located in Arizona.
I originally offered to fly myself out there, but they told me Skype was OK. Now I should mention that I have always done well with in person interviews, but I’ve always felt really awkward doing any kind of video chat.
First, I accidentally called them a couple hours early when I was trying to set up Skype to get the best location in my apartment. I freaked out because I had just gone for a run and was sweaty and red-faced. They came up on video so I hid off to the side in case they could see me. lol! (They couldn’t)
It seemed to be an ice-breaker anyway, so I just laughed it off.
But when it came time for the actual interview, I have a feeling I didn’t do very well. I just didn’t know where to look, and generally just felt very awkward.
I of course followed up with a thank you, but haven’t heard a peep (even though they did mention the next round could take a couple of weeks).
I don’t know. I’m sad because I would LOVE to work at an online women’s magazine. It’s right up my ally.
So I guess only time will tell…
I’m finally playing beach volleyball this weekend despite the pain in my shoulder, and next week I start 1 of 5 personal training sessions. More on that later…
Have a great weekend!
