I just ended a skype interview for a funded internship in Uganda. If I get the position, I will be flying to Africa from January for a full 4-month stay in Uganda working with an HIV/AIDS organization.
I won’t know the results until ‘a week and a bit’, according to T, one of my interviewers. I was able to answer all of the questions (although they did ask me to elaborate or re-answer with a different past experience) but there was a moment when it seemed like I had answered ‘wrongly’. Basically, I gave an experience that came off completely negatively than what they were looking for. I was able to save my answer with some follow-up questions on the experience, but having T reply to my previous statement in that way left a bad taste in my mouth.
See the thing is, I can only remember what I fucked up but only vaguely on what I said well. It’s rather frustrating.
This week-plus-a-bit is going to kill me. Really. Here’s a shot for comparison: I wrote an eloquent letter to the boy I love back home to tell him finally how I feel. I emailed it to him with no regrets. I haven’t stressed or worried over it too much since.
This is way more heart-rattling. Which is silly because if I don’t get it, then the worst-case scenario is to go back to Vancouver for one last university semester.
Anyway, cross your fingers.
