Job interviews are SCARY!

...even when you like the company and think that you ARE a good fit for the job and think that the interview DID go well.

And then you hang up the phone, and it's - NOW what?!

Now I wait - will they fly me out there for more interviewing? Did I make a fool of myself when I said, "I'm really smart" even tho the interviewer cut me off right then and I don't think he heard me say it? (eek.) And do I WANT to move to that town?

And really - what kind of a job do I want? Even tho I feel like I would be a good match for that company and that position - do I want to do that work?

Ah, life.

Oh, I am so with you on this Margaret.

Job interviews are, indeed, TERRIFYING and job hunting is the WORST!

With all the job hunting and job interviewing I've done in the past three years, I PRAY multiple times a day that Heavenly Father will let me keep my current job! (PLEASE!!!)

Anyway, I wanted to tell you that you have nothing to worry about (except, perhaps, the normal moving issues) --

You have a masters degree, you have traveled and taught in other countries, you have a fun personality, you know everyone on the planet...

No worries! You'll land a GREAT job that you'll LOVE! I just know it.

Oy, job interviews. Just as bad as DTR's, Social Worker visits, and high school reunions.

Are you going for another education-related job, or is this more of a general french understanding and speaking job?

You'll be fine. The nice part of your situation is that relocating should be relatively painless. An by "painless," I mean you're-having-your-braces-tightened pain instead of root-canal pain.
