Taking a plunge into the deep end

Tomorrow I have an interview for a web design job for a company downtown [Chicago.] I haven’t been actively pursuing a job, but I happened to stumble across this company when I was browsing Craigslist. Normally I’m very skeptical of my own skills/talent, so I was hesitant to send them an email with my portfolio and resume.

Pushing aside my insecurities, I went ahead and sent out an email and heard back after the weekend. Needless to say, I had a call on Friday to set up my interview for Monday. I’m nervous for the fact that I really want this job. It’s going to be my highest paying one yet (between $25-27 an hour) and it’d be in a lovely location downtown.

I’m going to try to remain optimistic, but even if I don’t get the job for some odd reason, at least I can say I tried.


  1. Speaking from experience, be confident in your skills, don’t let yourself become intimidated and speak from the heart. Good luck! Let us know how it goes!

  2. Good luck with the interview. A couple of months ago I was going through the same thing – then I got suprised and was offered the job straight away – coolios..!
