Lessons Learned For The Season

| 25 April 2010
I have nothing to share, I thought, but when I remembered my latest job interview I realized so many things. There are various lessons learned for this season. I decided to work again in a law firm in order to refresh myself of the legal world. I have been into writing lately and I thought I need to focus more on any future legal profession. That way, I will never do the same mistake again of neglecting my very first dream.

It was already seven in the morning when the contact person for the job informed me of the change of appointment time. From two thirty in the afternoon, it was moved to ten in the morning because the lawyer who will interview me needs to attend a court hearing in the afternoon. I learned a lesson that not all job interviews are fixed in a single time for appointments. It could change and it never crossed my mind. I was too confident that I have all the time in the world.

One of the lessons learned for the season is to avoid being late. Because the appointment time was changed, I ran out of time preparing myself. Hence, I hurried and went to the venue as fast as I could. Yes, I was late for an hour. Luckily, the lawyer who will interview me seemed nice. After all, it was them who changed the time without informing me the day before the interview as scheduled. But then, it is never right to be late in a job interview. I was just lucky that time.

During the interview, my confidence blinded me that I forgot to bring all the necessary documents for the interview. I handed my resume, but I failed to enclose a diploma or a transcript of records. The lawyer needs proof that I really graduated LLB then. Since there is nothing that I can do, I thought of bringing the conversation to a more related scenario that could save me at the moment. Luckily, the lawyer acceded to my bubbly alibi. Then again, I should have prepared all the necessary papers before going to the job interview. I was lucky again that I was able to turn the tide in my favor.


The last thing is the examination process. For all my jobs, I rarely took the examination proper. The employer will just let me skip such process. It gives a boost to my confidence which almost failed me in that latest job interview. The lawyer asked me to write a complaint against a borrower who failed to perform his obligation to pay his debt. I was startled at first, not only because I was not able to review the exact legal form, but also my concern of time constraints. I still have other important matters to accomplish after the interview. I was lucky again, because when I mentioned to the lawyer that I can write every legal form and pleadings necessary, and that it was one of my expertise, he believed me right away. And so, the examination proper became out of the question. Lessons learned, I must be prepared for everything and be mindful of all possibilities. I was just lucky that I got the job for just ten minutes interview.
