Interviews

Every time I do an interview I feel like a complete idiot that has no idea what he’s talking about. I feel like an imposter that doesn’t know what he’s talking about and is making everything up. I had a phone interview today for a SEM/SEO manager position that I think would have been a good fit given it’s ability to be remote, it’s work i enjoy doing and i think the pay would be decent. And I felt like a deer in headlights. I don’t know why i have such an issue explaining myself. I know I’m not the most knowledgable, but i do think i know a bit of what I’m talking about. Maybe it’s intimidation or imposter syndrome? I don’t know.

The other part that bothers me is that, like a friend said to me, I seem to attract the weirdest jobs/job owners. A firm i interviewed with wants to set up a second interview, but they continue to try and reschedule semi-last minute, which bothers me. I know i prefer smaller businesses because they tend to give more freedom and the more abilities to try new things and experiment. But they also end up with the most frustrating owners. I get that money is tight when it comes to running a small business, but it’s frustrating when your time isn’t given the respect and courtesy you’re expected to give.

I want to attract the type of job that going to pay well, give me some freedom, and make me feel accomplished or satisfied.

Is that asking too much?
