It was 9 am and I was off to a job interview. I arrived at reception and waited nervously. No matter how many interviews I did, I still felt that rush of nerves right before the big moment.
It was like walking on to a Broadway Musical for the first time having never sung a note in my life. That’s how I felt that morning.
The lift door opened.
A man walked out.
He wasn’t dressed that well. Considering the money he would have been on; I expected more. Still, looks are not everything.
He walked me through the office and into an empty meeting room. It was time for action.
After the pleasantries were out of the way and we’d commented on the weather, the man said something to me which stuck with me.
“If you do something wrong the first time it’s okay, but if I have to tell you a second time, we’re going to have a problem.”
This line didn’t feel right.
Something was wrong.
Still, it was the job I wanted. It was in a high-growth industry, it was a step up and the money they were offering sounded right.
I accepted the job. It was four weeks until I’d start.
