I think about the interviews I'm going to have in life pretty often, weirdly enough. That being said, What Interviewers Wish They Could Tell Every Job Candidate by Jeff Haden made me think more about the relationship that the people in an interview have and are cultivating as the interview goes on.
For me, it can be very intimidating to think about an interview and having to work really hard to impress whoever I'm meeting with. But the more I think about it, the more I realize that I just need to make sure I'm the best version of myself during the interview. Yes, I need to make sure they know why I'm great and why I would be a good fit. But I also need to realize that if it doesn't seem like a great fit, then its not the job for me. I want to be comfortable where I work, and that might sound slightly selfish, but I know I will work harder if I enjoy coming to the studio.
I also need to begin figuring out what my "stand out" feature is. I think I'm pretty good at a lot of things, but its hard to figure out what I am great at, which is something I should be focusing on as my graduation gets closer.
