Today I had a very big interview with a trading company on wall street and I was looking forward to it all week. I made sure I printed out a few resumes yesterday, as well as researched the company and took some notes to show interest and have questions for the interviewer.
I wake up this morning at 645am to use the bathroom and then went back to bed with my phone right next to me because my alarm was set to go off at 740am. I wake up and I look down on my phone and it reads 902am. I jumped out of bed and rushed to the bathroom and brushed my teeth and washed my face. Now understand people that my interview was scheduled for 10am so you can understand why I am rushing and why I didnt get the chance to shower (I know very nasty but at the time I definitely didnt care).
I put on my suit and then realize my shirt is wrinkled and then I had to find my shoes. Then I get upset again when I see that its warm out and my mom has my "interview jacket" and I am stuck wearing my big ass pea coat. So I'm rushing to the bus in heels in a full suit and pea coat sweating bricks. I wanted to just turn back home and take a L for this job but I didn't.
Long story short I get there @ 1030am and I tell the lady I have an appt with such n such and I sit there waiting. Then this man comes out and asks for my resume and then goes back in. 5min later this older man in shorts and running sneakers comes out and ask what time was our appt and I say 10am and he says because I was late he has to reschedule. I was so tight n disappointed in myself. I rescheduled for monday but I feel like I already blew my chances on this position because first impressions are lasting impressions and I just showed that I am not responsible.
