Ok.. let me set this up for you... i graduated from a music/recording school in 2002 and moved to atlanta for work. I got a really good internship (unpaid) at one of the nicest and busiest recording studios in town. i mean, i worked for outkast, ludacris, the nappy roots, and the indigo girls while i was there. so 6 months down the road i was still pretty much at intern status, not being paid... which didnt help my drive to work very hard at this studio. so i quit after 8 months of working there. i was pretty sad for a while and blamed myself for blowing such a good oppurtunity, i know it was my fault, i just couldnt click with any of the people there and get in where i fit in. i quickly got a job working for a company, good salary, outstanding benefits and just working with all around cool people, all aquantinces prior to getting the job. just recently i have been feeling pretty lost in what i want to do with my life and really desperately wanting to get a job doing what i went to school for and what i love. i saw a job posting for a paid studio position and applied for it. i just got an email back today to do a phone interview tomorrow. i'm sort of nervous about the phone interview. I'm not very good at interviewing with people. dont get me wrong.. i know my stuff and am certain i am the one for the job. Just right now, i have a very good secure job with excellent pay for my age (32k/year) that will be far greater than anything i'll be getting paid working at a studio, along with guaranteed hours. what i'm worried about is how i'm going to negotiate and communicate to the studio manager that i REALLY want this job, and i'm the right person for it. BUT at the same time tell her i am working at an excellent day job without scaring her off making her think that i'm sketchy about it. sometimes i'm not great with my choice of words and conveying my thoughts. i'm young and new at interviewing so any help to build my confidence for this interview is welcome.
