I have another job interview tomorrow.  So nervous.  I have been to several now and have still not gotten a job.  I don't know if I'm doing something wrong or what.  I know I get so nervous and anxious!  The interview tomorrow will be especially hard for me to get through as my grandmother passed away this morning.  Any advice ladies?

I am sorry for your loss.

Try to focus on the company. Try to look at it as though you are having a conversation about the company and yourself and that's it. An exchange of info. Do not mention your loss unless they ask if something is wrong because you are crying. Otherwise it's just a convo. GL

Thank you.

The place is a big gas station/restaurant/truck stop type setup.  They also do emergency roadside assistance.  They have several positions open right now, and I told the lady who called about the interview that I would be happy with whatever job position she wants to place me in.  I know they're hiring for dispatcher, cashier, fuel desk clerk, and someone to work the counter in the restaurant.  Either way it would be a much needed paycheck coming in so I'd be happy.  

I'd really love a job doing secretarial work, but have not had much luck.  I've basically been applying anywhere hiring around my area.

I'm sorry about your grandmother passing.  Stay strong and be positive at the interview, that's what she would have wanted for you.  Good Luck!

Try some deep breathing before you go in or listen to relaxing music on your way. So sorry about your grandmother.
