I haven't shared this with many people, but I am actively seeking full time employment. (Yes, I work for SparkPeople, but it is a part time position that I plan to keep working!)
This morning, I had an interview with a start-up company. I arrived a few minutes early, of course, so I had a bit of time to relax in my car and get my head focused on the interview ahead. And rather unexpectedly, I found myself smiling and thinking, "yep, I'm ready for this."
Action 216 - Enter Confidently. And I did. I was prepared, because I had done my research on the company and would be able to discuss the work intelligently and ask relevant questions. I was qualified for the position and was ready to give specific examples of how my qualifications made me the best candidate to hire. And I felt comfortable in my own skin, knowing that I looked confident, fit and healthy.
Yes, I am aware that being physically fit is not a prerequisite for being qualified for most jobs. But feeling good physically translates to standing taller and presenting myself more assertively.
I probably won't know until next week if I got the job or not, but either way, I feel good about myself and how I interviewed. I know my confidence showed.
