Shit Hole I'm In...

OK, just came back from an interview for the DT coordinator position on AIESEC. And I'm praying freaking hard that I won't get the position. Lady Luck, please bless me on this one!

If you are wondering why I would apply for it in the first place when I don't even want it, well, I have no freaking idea. Honestly, the reason I sent my application was just to tryout the interview, AIESEC-style. I have no intention of landing the job seeing that I basically have no whatsoever experience needed for it. The way I see it is that this could be my opportunity to train my leadership skill that is much needed in the working world if I got it. Even if I don't get it, I won't miss a thing since I already accepted another AIESEC position, the Director of Marketing for the Festival of Nation. The funny thing is, again, I got zero experience in marketing and I'm appointed as the director for the project.

The day before the interview, I was told that the post I'm applying, that DT stuff, there's only another applicant besides me and she is has a lot of experience in it. So, I thought, hmm, less than 50%, much better! I just go for fun then.

So, what set off my determination of not getting the post? When they ask me how I would delegate my time to handle all the stuffs I have and how much time I would allocate for the DT and the Festival of Nation and what's my plan to make the program that I will be handling should I elected the DT coordinator, SAVE, a success...all these technical stuffs they bombarded me with make me realise, heck, I don't want it anymore. I really do enjoys the amount of free time I had and they had made it clear that this post will be stressful and demanding. But I can't really say it during the interview and when I was told that should I elected, I can't really quit halfway, I was in deep shit!

During my interview, from the words that came out from my mouth, it was so obvious that I was unprepared. I basically just uttered whatever logical stuffs that I can think of. Even I have limited knowledge on SAVE. Surely they won't depend the success of the program on such a reckless and inexperienced person. Right? Even that less than 50% statement sounds intimidating to me. Only 0% would be comforting.

The result for the post will be emailed it to us this Thursday. I really freaking hope that the name attached on that email will not be me.........

lol goodluck not getting your job! I think that's the first time I've ever wished that for someone. Too much work is always a bother, but if you do get it perhaps you're destined for the post for some reason!!!

成亿 said...

err...if u c it dat way...

no la, i applied for it in d 1st place with no expectation of landing the job...from what i heard during the interview, i don't think i might be able to help them achieve their targets so it's better if they elect the other applicant...
