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!


  1. Well, I haven't faced the interview yet but I know it's quite strainful !
    In interviews there is a challenge to prove others that I am the best , I have more capabilities than others in a short period of time!

    I liked your positive attitude and your determination to give your best!

    Good Luck Dear :)

  2. Congratulations for doing it the way you wanted it. And yes, the interview board is always the place where we can showcase what we hold and can hold.

    Blasphemous Aesthete

  3. Glad that you did well in the interview. Wish the outcome is in your favor too!! :)


  4. Giving your best is a victory in itself. You certainly do live up to your name 'Always Happy'. Although I would love to know your real name :)

    All the best for the outcome.

  5. fear to loosing something is very harmful..
    and the important thing i observed here is that you knew that you are not going to loose anything.. so naturally you had to excel at the interview,as you did.... by your own way.... CONGRATS.
