I know this is an odd place to ask this type of questions but it seems to me that musicians generally think in similar ways. At least from my experiences.
Here's my dilemma.
I've been working part time since December and have been interviewing since I've stepped down to part time. I stepped down to part time so I can finish my schooling which should be December of this year. However, I feel like I have had the worse luck in history when it comes to interviewing. I've kept steady jobs, good track record with all my jobs, most of them I left on my own terms.
Now, I"m getting to that point in life where I need to start looking for a career rather than a "job". In my observations it seems that aren't many careers anymore. It's mostly just jobs.
The whole main point of this thread is to see if I can acquire any advice or tips from you fine folks in regards to interviewing.
I am interviewing soon for a sales job at a local cell phone store. It's sales but not sales due to the fact my salary is a base pay rather than commission.
I feel that potential job could have the potential to turn into a career. I've had several years of experience in similar roles. However, in most of my interviews they say I interview well but lack the qualifications or experience.
So, I would greatly appreciate any advice that you could give me.
I also have a dilemma as well. I will be flying to Hong Kong for 2 1/2 weeks in July to visit friends. Is there a good way to announce this to your new potential employer?
