Well it’s been a week in the working world. My first “real” job. A “real” person, as I like to call myself now.
When I was offered an interview at QVC, I was over the hill. I learned everything about the company to prepare for the interview; where they were located, their sales stats, who was the CEO, their core values, anything I could get my hands on. I confidently thought I knew everything going into the interview. Low and behold, my first question: What was my favorite QVC brand? I had no clue. Out of all the research and preparation for my interview, I had totally forgot to look at the brands they carried. I had never even seen the show. I thought I was done for when I heard that question. “Honestly, I have never seen the show. I know you have celebrity lines such as the Kardashians and Heidi Klum.” And the only reason I knew this: reality TV. Yes, I am a reality TV junkie.
I finished the interview with confidence and an ongoing pray I could recover. Right when the interview was over, I speed home (I would say I was home in 2 minutes flat). Ran to my laptop and started researching QVC brands. I emailed the three women I had interviewed with all personalized emails and different QVC brands I admired.
I pulled through and was offered the job.
