I had a phone interview this morning for a part-time lab tech position at a chemical engineering firm. It went surprisingly well. It helped that the person I spoke to told me I had a very strong resume. Who knew that my student job at the library would come in handy (book repair technician = steady hands)? Hopefully, I'll get called back for an in-person interview, which will have the advantage of not forcing me to go without visual social cues. On the other hand, I won't have my notes to go off of. I just need to remember that this is a job that I can do, and remain hopeful.
