I got feedback from my Monday interview - I came second best. Haha. It's a good thing that I just went to see Life of Pi (in 3D!) yesterday. Apart from it being visually beautiful and making you think about faith and perseverance, if I learnt one thing from it, it's that you can always choose how you want to interpret things.
I wouldn't be entirely honest if I said it doesn't bug me at all, but I got a lot of positive feedback (apparently I was very engaging, well prepared, had clearly done my research, was strong on the social media marketing side as well as content generation and have great international experience) and I can choose to perceive this as getting closer to my goal. I should be celebrating that I managed to attract a company that ticks so many of the boxes. I'm now going to focus on what I liked about the company to attract organisations with similar attributes. Perhaps just like I was a 90% match for them, they may have been a 90% match for me. Something good is out there, and I'm clearly getting closer, and am better prepared than before.
Also, I know I've vibrationally attracted the outcome because even though most of my vibrations were positive about the interview, I let myself worry a little. I was telling myself that I hope the other candidates don't have more experience, when I should have been telling myself that I have more experience than the other candidates. Such a Law of Attraction 101 mistake! :)
Oh, funnily enough, I got contacted by a Czech recruiter asking me if I'd consider a job back at in the Czech Republic. That's a no at the moment. (I'm confident that I could get the kind of job she was offering whenever I decided to return back to the Czech Republic, not to mention that I actually can't physically return back there until the end of March anyway).
I almost forgot something else that I got from the Life of Pi film:
"Above all else, never lose hope."
EDIT: I just had the phone interview for the role that I'm not interested in at all, and I'm quite glad that's behind me, as that was probably bringing my spirit down more than being the second best candidate at the other company. I really wasn't looking forward to lying about my supposed enthusiasm. Now back to jobs I actually want!
