Well, I didn't get the MJI job. Dammit. But My boss came and talked to me about it. He informed me confidentially that I was the Institute's second choice for the job, and that the person who got the job had 12 years of private practice experience in one of the fields that this position will be dealing with most often. He also told me that when they called the big boss for a reference on me, the big boss commented that in the past they've had feedback that I appeared nervous during interviews -- he was intending to assure them that I am very confident in doing public speaking and not nervous at all, although I come across that way sometimes in the interview setting -- and that they told him that they hadn't seen that at all, that I seemed perfectly comfortable and confident in the interview. So, although I didn't get the job, I would have but for someone having nine years more attorney experience than I have. Moreover, I presented myself at the interview just exactly how I need to in order to be successful. In the end, although I'm terribly worried about finding a job before this one ends, and one that pays well, I've come out of this experience feeling much better than I have in weeks. At least this time I know that I am not "doing anything wrong" during the interviews, so I WILL find a job eventually.
