The Confident & Cocky Interview

Hi all...

My recent experience while in an interview was beyond ridiculous. I'm trying to change the career path I'm taking so I need to work from the bottom up. I'm usually really nervous and reserved in an interview (hate saying shy), but prior to the interview I was feeling myself way too much because of what I was wearing, and it only got worse as I walked into the shop. When I finally got interviewed things got from confident to cocky! I was butting in when the person interviewing me was speaking and also slightly taking control.

I was a loud mouth, over confident b.....itch!  Hahaa, you could smell me from a mile away. Literally, I was covered in a cocktail mix of perfumes. I applied to the perfume shop (Its a start- shut up Lol) so I thought it would have been a great approach smelling good.

Moving on it all seemed fine. I was asked a load of questions and I thought I had answered them reasonably well. Yet it all fell apart when I was asked to state 3 words to describe myself. I chose WONDERFUL, TALKATIVE and DIFFERENT! 

Yes different indeed. If you get asked questions don't answer in an obnoxious way as it's definitely not the way to go. I know this of course but I must of been high off perfume fumes. Unfortunately I ended up coming across pompous so didn't get the job. Oh well, you live and you learn, next time I just won't cross the line. I'll just have to continue job hunting and hope the next interview goes well.  

Job interview tips...

Arrive at least 5 mins early
