I'm terrified! I just got a call for an INTERVIEW tomorrow! I haven't had a 'real' job since college - well, technically I've NEVER had a real full-time job, so I'm incredibly nervous. It's for a 'program specialist' at KinderCare. It'd be great for Kaia and the money would be awesome, I just really didn't want anything full-time. I applied a while ago (6 weeks maybe) and didn't think I'd hear from them because I didn't really have the necessary requirements. But they called this morning. And I'm scared! I hate interviews. I get tongue-tied in front of positions of authority (not to mention how queasy I'm feeling at the moment).

Here's a position description

Program Specialists - KinderCare
These positions involve a balance of classroom curriculum implementation and administrative responsibilities in our Infant/Toddler classrooms and our Preschool through School Age classrooms. We are looking for experienced teachers or administrators who have high standards and believe that the care they provide is invaluable. Ideal candidates will have demonstrated the ability to establish effective relationships with parents and children. Additional requirements include

No requirements were listed, but I know they were when I applied because there were one or two that I didn't completely meet.

HELP!!!!! I'm feeling ill.

You're going to do just fine. You already met the most important criteria: You love Kaia and want to provide a good life for her. The rest is just details.

Just look 'em in the eye, don't be afraid to catch yourself mid sentence if you feel your babbling, and be straightforward.

You'll knock 'em dead!

Best of luck...
