So I know I haven't updated in a while, but that's cause nothing's really happened since the last time I posted.
Except that I have an interview for a potential internship! I just got the email and aahhh. I really hope I get it, but at the very least I want to volunteer.

Here's me flailing.

Oh, and does anyone have any ideas about the appropriate attire for a museum internship interview?

Congrats and good luck! I'd say business casual, plain and formal.

Thank you! And thanks for the advice. I think I've only ever had one real interview like this, so I'm pretty clueless.

Good luck! I think you should go with a T-rex costume. Hold on, natural or art museum? ;) (Kidding. What Meisje said!)

Egyptology, so a mummy costume would probably be better. I'll try to find a classy one!

It's an egyptology museum, and if I get it I think I'd get training in being a museum guide and creating workshops and stuff like that.

One of the coolest things is that they have a reconstruction of a tomb, so I could potentially give tours through the tomb yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay omg.

Hahaha, thank you for the advice! <3

I know! I really hope I get it. Even if museum stuff isn't for me, it'll be a fun experience.

Thank you! Omg, I need to learn how to charm people. I'm too socially awkward. D:

naaaaaaah, you're perfectly charming and sweet :) But i read somewhere that asking questions in interviews is a v good sign, even the ones that seem dumb - like, you could ask them if you would need to buy any special equiptment or books and where's the best place to get them, ask them what sort of funding they get and about field trips and any outside work they do, perhaps with schools orrrr how many people would you be working with in your department and...err...stuff


Yeh, people generally like talking about themselves, so asking an interviewer lots of intellegent questions about the job in a charming ooh-look-at-my-legs-in-this-skirt kind of way will probably help :D

Hee, well thanks!

I actually got training in interviewing people when I was earning my degree. But I haven't been interviewed since then, so maybe I'll have an advantage there.
