- If I do get it, it's a promotion. It's the area I want to be in, I will be able to actually 'do' something, rather than giving other people the tools to 'do' something.
- If I don't get it, my boss has said I will get more training so that I can eventually get into the same area.
- If I don't get it, I will get feedback on what I need to do better next time.
- If I don't get it, it's not like I'm unhappy where I am anyway.
- If I do get it, it's scary. It's harder. It's all new and a change from what I've done here for the past five years. And I'm hearing a lot of things from my big boss that indicates she doesn't believe I can do it, damn self doubt.
- If I don't get it I will have to keep working with someone who perhaps didn't believe I could do it anyway. Damn self doubt AND shame.
- I bought a belt to go outside my shirt and I'm not the kind of girl who accessorises so I'm not going to know if it looks dumb. For example, it doesn't seem to have a second loop on it (to catch the end) so should I buy a different one? I don't know how high to wear it. I don't know if it's even one you're supposed to wear on the outside (EDIT: Retried my shirt on and it doesn't need an outside belt. Problem solved!).
- I've always been a fan of the 'rock up and see how you go' style of interviewing, but all signs seem to point to this being one where I have a fair chunk of reading to do beforehand.
Bring on Friday lunchtime, I say.
