My store team leader (STL) called me into his office today. He said he would send my resume over to a STL from a different Target in our district, and that STL will call me to set up a pre-screen interview, probably near the end of next week. If I make it through that interview, then I get to go through three more interviews before becoming an ETL.
I’m already starting to freak out, even though my first interview hasn’t even been set yet. So much weight is placed on the interviews, and I haven’t had much experience with interviews. My only real interviews were for my current job at Target, and those were very informal. I was applying on a lark anyway, so I didn’t think too much about the outcome. This time, I really want the job. The stakes are much higher.
One of my worst fears is being interviewed. I don’t think I make a very strong first impression, and I don’t see why anyone would hire me over other people. Luckily, one of the ETLs is going to coach me in interviewing. She really wants to help me become an ETL. I just hope we can turn me into an employable person by the end of next week.
