Murphy’s Law tells us that if anything can go wrong, it will go wrong.
When it came to my first job interview, Murphy couldn’t have been more right.
I was almost finished with my senior year of college and had made it to the final round of Teach For America (TFA) interviews. For those who don’t know, TFA is an elite national service corps and is known for being extremely difficult to get into. The final round of interviews consisted of a dozen TFA hopefuls presenting a 5-minute lesson each, followed by a group activity, an individual written test, a lunch break, and one-on-one interviews.
To say it was an intense first interview is an understatement.
