So it seems that the corporate recruiter and associated company folks approved of my writing sample. Just got a call. They want me to come in for an interview tomorrow. Gleep.
And yep, there go my anxiety and nervousness levels, right through the ceiling. I think this would be a place I'd like to work at, cubicle-monkey status notwithstanding, which makes the prospect of the interview process even more nerve-wracking.
The first part of the interview will be a design analysis test, which I'm actually relieved about. An analytical challenge will help to soothe my early jitters. Plus, I tend to test well, and I like having the opportunity to prove my ability straight off the bat. But I'm still a bundle of twitches.
Don't have the exact address yet (I'm expecting an email with directions after lunch), but I got a rough idea where it is from the recruiter. It's in Dunwoody between exits 5 and 6 off 400. I like the location (I think). It would be a fairly easy commute, although going in the wrong direction, of course. I much prefer driving north rather than going south, but at least it wouldn't be into the city proper.
Hey, I spotted a few of you and fosteronfilm in the just-posted official D*C photos. You're on page 29 and 30, at least, giving a smooch to your hubby, then sleeping on a couch.

have fun. just go out and enjoy meeting these nice people. that and promise yourself a heap of chocolate when you're done. that way, whenever you start feeling nervous and think of bolting, there will be a faint smile on your lips at the thought of chocolate.
