That’s how I feel at the moment just after a job interview - an INTERNAL interview. It felt very strange to give an interview to people who I work with everyday. Prior to the interview, I thought there is possibly nothing more that I can tell the panel than what they already know about me. But I was wrong. The interview appeared to be the best time for me to demonstrate to the panel what skills and experience I have developed while working with them over the last two years and how I would like to develop it further.
I am not too worried about the outcome as I absolutely love what I currently do. Of course, it will be an added bonus to be successful today and move a step ahead in the career ladder. But I have nothing to lose if I am unsuccessful today.
When I stepped out of the house this morning, all I had in mind was that I must do my best in both rounds of the interview and I have managed to achieve that. During my interview prep, it was interesting to analyse what the other external candidates may bring to the position and what unique thing I have to offer to the role. Well, to find answer to that I had to be myself at the interview. After all, who else is responsible for creating my professional reputation other than me!
