Once again, congratulations on reaching this stage in the recruitment process and we look forward to meeting you!
It's very exciting to have a location. Even though I knew the date, and that it would be downtown, having an exact location somehow makes it feel very real and cemented down. Does that make sense? Now I just have to figure out what I'm going to wear!! Oh and try to think about some answers to interview-type questions. I know why I want to go back - its my dream coming true all over again, however I don't exactly know how to convey it in so many words without gushing like a big weirdo! haha. We shall do our best and at the end of the day if they want to rehire other people instead of me, I can't do anything about it - as long as I know I did everything I could at the interview.
I'm also excited because we're planning a dinner the night before the interview to meet up with everyone and chat. Sam (my little sister from my first contract!!) is coming over from Victoria so it will be really nice to see her, as well as one of my roommates from my first contract Courtney, and meet everyone else! This dinner before my last interviews really helped to make me a tiny bit less nervous, as walking into a room of familiar faces is always easier than walking into a room of unknowns!
One year ago today I went to New Orleans for Mardi Gras! I'll try to put together a post about it soon!
