Placement Interview: Okay, now I’m nervous…


It’s just about 12 hours until my final interview and the nerves are really starting to sink in.

I’ve read more blogs this past year than I ever thought possible and it seems that this past week they’ve all been somewhat negative. One person got denied all together, a bunch of people got pushed back several months (budget cuts), and others seemed disappointed with their assignments. People also got invited over the phone (told the package was in the mail), but that scenario seems rare among the others.

If anyone out there reads this, last-minute words of advice or encouragement would be lovely!

  1. If this is what you want! Trust me it will be worth the wait. I sent in my application in October 2010, I was nominated to leave Aug/Sept. of 2011 but, due to budget cuts that got pushed back to Jan-March of 2012 and I will be leaving for Paraguay at the beginning of February. It was a long and difficult process, but if you make it through, you know this is what you are meant to do!

    I hope your final interview goes well! Good luck tomorrow 🙂

  2. Thank you so much for your kind words, Kelley! It ended up going really well, she only had one question and the call lasted 4 minutes! haha
