I applied to Nordstrom’s international flagship store almost two months ago for the concierge position and (surprisingly!) got an email back saying that they were pleased with my application!
Cue intense scream of excitement.
Then they scheduled a phone interview with me, which wasn’t really a phone interview because all they did was set up a face-to-face interview with me.
Cue even shriller scream of excitement.
I’ve been a ball of nervous energy ever since then, and it’s been about a month. I just had my face-to-face interview today at the Fairmont hotel in Downtown Vancouver, and I think it went pretty well! Fingers crossed, however – I’m not sure if I’ve made the cut quite yet. They said that they would let me know within 72 hours, so I’m hoping I get a call back on Monday.
I’m super excited to have even made it this far – this is the first job I’ve gotten an interview for on my own, and I’m proud of myself for it! And for Nordstrom! To even be considered is pretty neat.
This is my desperate job search at the moment. Should I not get the job, I’m either going to look elsewhere or live off my student aid for a couple months.
School also gives me lots of things to be nervous about, because double major? Language requirements? Tuition? Trying to crunch my degree into 4 years? Scary. I feel like everything is flying by so fast since I turned 19 (only a month and a bit ago!) and I still have so much ahead of me! I hope I achieve what I set out to do this year.
Life is running pretty fast alongside me – hope I can keep up! God only knows I don’t exercise whatsoever.
