    I am so nervous.. what do I wear?
    I have been sent 6 pages of info on the company and he said make sure I really read it... ahhhhhhhhh

    The interview is one and a half hours and will involve all different parts..

    shaking and nervous..

    any advice?
    Congrats. Think about the skills u have as a parent that are transferable. Time management, patience, organization etc. think of time u have used such skills. Think when u have worked as a team and individually. How u have tackled conflict? I could give more specific advise if I knew the job.

    Ok.. so went in for the job at 10..
    It was a recruitment consultant..
    Had to do a maths test, attention to detail test and answer lots of questions..
    how I have handled conflict, customer service...etc etc.
    Took 2 hours.

    Then He asked me to go straight to the second interview at the airport..
    So he prepped me for it and told me to prepare myself for lots and lots of questions..

    so headed out, she interviewed me for 10 mins..
    just asked about how I would handle shift work, why I want to work there and what I like about them..

    Then said..Ok will let you know this afternoon..

    so I dont think I did too well..

    There's really no way of knowing until you get the call.

    They may not put many people through to the 2nd stage, so that might be more of a cursory interview. She might have been really impressed with you really quickly. They may have found the right person already that day.

    Unfortunately it's a case of wait to find out now. But IF they don't go forward, then it may be nothing to do with how well you have done. Often when I've been interviewing there have been more than one good person for a single spot. It may just be a case that someone else ticked the boxes before you. I will keep everything crossed that's not the case, though!
