I had an interview today for an internship with a mental health advocacy group. I was so excited. Guess what-I bombed it. So completely. I made the biggest mistake you can make in an interview. I didn’t do my research. She asked me about the website. I didn’t look. I didn’t have time. What a terrible excuse. I should’ve made time. How long would it have really taken? “You didn’t read our website?” she asked. What could I say? I told the truth. I don’t lie.
I looked so terrible. I’m pretty sure I blew my shot, but you know what? Years ago, even one year ago, I wouldn’t have even tried. At least I went for it. I am going to look at the positive. I went for it, I got the interview, I completed the interview. If nothing else ever comes from it, though I hope something does, then that’s okay. I took the leap. I got out of my comfort zone.
But a word of advice, always do your research before an interview.
