I survived my first phone interview!

sb10064079ai-001.jpgWell I survived my first interview today. Granted, it was only a phone interview, but I must have done well enough that they scheduled a face to face interview on Tuesday morning. I’m really nervous! Now I’m doubting things and making myself more afraid. I just need to focus on the positives and everything will be fine. I really hope I get hired with this company.

They said the salary I was expecting was in the right range for the position I applied for. I was worried that I was going to be asking for too much money. I actually told them that I’d like to make at least what I am making now. With the position I applied for, I will not be managing any employees. There’s always room for growth though.

They were wondering why I wanted to take a position that was a step down from my current position. I explained to them the current state of the company I now work for and cited that as my main reason. I also told them that I wouldn’t mind working for a smaller financial institution. I think many of the large banks have lost touch of customer service and are focusing on sales now. I miss the customer service aspect of everything.

Now I just need to prepare myself for the face to face interview.  I’ve got a list of questions they may ask me, and I’m going to come up with some good answers so I don’t sound like an idiot at the interview.

I’m a little worried about taking the time off from my current job, but it will have to be done.  I am crossing my fingers that this is the right opportunity for me and they like me well enough to hire me.  Only time will tell!
