Went for another interview today – this time in the tech field (job title was DHTML guru – not quite sure I fit the bill, but I applied anyway). I have to admit I had very mixed feelings about this one. I really want to move out of the tech sector (not 100% sure why), but the job is in an area of interest for me, and given the resounding lack of certainty about the other things I’ve applied for, it’s nice to be applying for something with a bit of familiarity.
Overall the interview went well, I think. Have to admit I felt a lot more confident going into this one than the other day. Probably to be expected really, given I’ve been doing this stuff for eight years now (my how time flies!), but it was nice to have that confidence again, even if for a moment — been feeling very much on the back foot of late.
In other news, I’ve organised a jam with some (musical) friends of mine to happen next week – the first real step towards starting a band to perform the songs I’ve been doing solo for a while (ones that don’t quite fit the Glance vibe). Very exciting, very scary. It’s weird – while I’ve kinda become comfortable with performing my stuff in solo acoustic mode, the minute I open that up to include other people I get very self-conscious and unconfident. Another emotion to learn to deal with I suppose!
All in all I’m really looking forward to it. At the very least it will be an interesting experience – at best it will turn into something special.
