A few weeks ago, I saw an advert in a newspaper for a job I really wanted. I filled out the application form, wrote my CV and sent everything off in the post. A few days later I received an email to invite me for an interview. I was so excited, but very nervous.
I wanted to look really smart for the interview. I wore a smart suit with a white shirt and my shiny, red shoes. I wanted to make a good impression. At the interview they asked me lots of questions. They asked me about my previous work experience and skills that I've got for the job. I also had to fill out some paperwork. I was well-prepared, so I think it went well. Afterwards, the interviewers shook my hand and said, “We’ll be in touch.” I am looking forward to hearing from them!
