For the last couple of weeks I've been focused on my QVC audition. Kind of putting the job hunting on hold til that was over with because it's such a big opportunity that I didn't want to screw it up. Well Friday I went down to Chicago and had my audition. went pretty good!

For the most part I wasn't too nervous. It was more like a deeper nervous. I knew that this was a big opportunity for me and it's something that I know I'd do well at it and I didn;t want to screw it up the opportunity. I felt like Eminem in 8 Mile. Ok maybe that's a little dramatic.

So here's how it all went down. I was an hour and half early for my audition. I come to this hallway with this line of chairs. I sit down and start to just calm my self down and get ready. Telling myself that I can do this. That the people around me weren't any better than me.

I walk in the room with my big Rubbermaid tote full of pots and pans and set up. I gave a quick intro about myself and then began with my brief presentation. I only had 2-3 minutes to sell my product. At the end the casting director gives me a one sheet and a sweater and tells me to go out to the hall and prepare another presentation in 5 minutes.

I go into the hall and everyone looks at me like "what's going on with her? How come she's not leaving?" AFter about 5 mintues and some people asking me questions, I went back in with a few things in mind of what I would say to sell this sweater. I had a little Erin personality tossed in there and off I went. I think I did a pretty good job the second time around considering I had only 5 minutes to come up with something.

So what now? I have NO IDEA!! They gave me absolutely no info. No, "Hey we'll call you in a week"...nothing. So I sit here and wonder what I should do next. I know I need to keep looking for work but what? If I don't get the QVC job will the job I get be better?

I'm going to sound like my mom here but I guess I'll just have to pray. I prayed that I would do a good job and not blow it and I did. So now, I guess I'll have to pray that I have the opportunity to get the job. All I know is sitting around wondering and waiting is hard.
