Finally this day has arrived.I was so nervous for the past few days. Read two "Power Interview" books, prepared my answers... called ppl for tips.... well well, Praise the Lord, i can clearly see God's providence in this process, though it does not mean that i will get this job offer( The position that i applied is a junior pharmacist, after my one-year training contract).Let me give you some examples:
#1. My colleague in Southend Hospital- she attended the interview one day before me.She told me what questions were being asked. She was the same person who told me about the interview that i had for this current job as well. Today, when i went for the interview, it was exactly the Same questions; same drug chart, same problems to be solved. Having said that, i didn't do very well for the clinical questions.
#2. There was this pharmacist who did the STEP programme and i met her during the Open day. I mailed her and she did reply on what to expect.Unfortunately, when i was at my friend's place yesterday, his computer crushed and couldn't connect to internet. Miraculously, this morning, in such a big hospital like Guy's, i was rehearsing for answers at atrium, she was on her way to the ward and i saw her! She was surprised that i didn't receive her e-mail and she spent 5 minutes going through the questions with me.She gave me precious tips and got me through the "priority question " bit.
#3. When i went into the room, i have actually met one of the interviewer before.I spent one week in his department: paediatric and he actually remembered me. =) That really helped a lot as i was more comfortable and at ease.
All in all, I am very thankful for all the prayers and support from my friends and my family. In times like this, i really do cherish my friends, especially being in a foreign country.I will know the result by Friday or next Monday.A big hug to all of you who are reading this and have been remembering me....
Lord, thank you for your providence and blessing me with friends who are supportive and encouraging.Whatever the outcome, please give me grace to accept it with a thankful and joyful heart, for i know that You will give me the best and You already have the place in your mind.Please prepare my heart this few days to accept the outcome. Amen.
I feel nervous.........=P
