Boston Globe Interview!

This morning I got out of bed, showered & instead of throwing on jeans or leggings, I put on my suit for my last first co-op interview. I know, that wording was confusing. I’ll back track. Here at Northeastern, we alternate periods of 6 month internship and regular semesters. I’ve already completed two co-ops, and I will be doing a third, and final, co-op starting in July. Today I had my first interview with the Boston Globe – a position that you could easily say is a dream job.

I’d be working in one of the Globe’s bi-weekly regional sections, either South, North or West of Boston, as a full time writer – pitching pieces, covering meetings, helping other reporters and editors in the office. The position is absolutely ideal for me – I’d be writing for a huge corporation, but I’d be able to publish content online and utilize my technology skills from Tech Target (my last co-op) and at the same time be able to work in a small newsroom that focuses on a smaller community, which is what I really loved about my first co-op at Bay Windows & South End News.

Dressed up & ready to go for my Boston Globe Interview!

So why am I telling you all this? Well of course, it ties into fashion. I wanted to share my outfit this morning with you, so I snapped a quick photo in my mirror. The quality isn’t fabulous, unfortunately my roommate was already at class otherwise I would have had her do it.

I bought this pencil suit skirt from Express for $24 on sale, and the red button down also at Express for $12, also on sale. The suit jacket is from Ann Taylor, which I scored at the outlet for just $50. All in all, not a bad look for less than $100!

I’ll be sure to keep you posted on the process, but for now I think the interview went really well! The woman I spoke with assured me that I’d definitely be pushed through for a second round interview at the beginning of April, so until then it’s just a waiting game. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
