Job interview...

Hey lovely people. I had a group job interview yesterday. I think it was alright but because there were so many of us going for the one position, I'm not really sure how it went.

It's for a company called Lorna Jane, an active wear/sportswear for women. It's a local brand with the designer living in Brisbane. I went for a reception/office person position at the head office. It's a really popular brand here and I guess that's why so many girls really want to work there.

You get to wear the clothes to work (in an office!) and it looks like a fantastic place. What I love about the company is it's all about empowering women and inspiring them to live healthy fulfilled lives. What I also love is how they are involved in the community and have an initiative called Swap Shop, where you can bring in old exercise gear which they will donate to charity then give you some store credit towards your next purchase.

A company that helps women and gets involved with the community is a place I would like to work. Plus their clothes really are comfy.

I bought this top to wear at my interview and because I wasn't sure if they wanted us to be semi corporate I wore a black skirt and black ballet flats. (We were supposed to wear something that had our personality but with the Lorna Jane image so some girls were dressed sporty others like me half sporty, half office).

I bought these pants too with the intention of wearing them to the interview but freaked out and thought I had to wear something more office. 

I would love to get these cropped pants if I ever do that ballet class that I want to do. 

Even if I don't get the job, it was an experience and it made me appreciate the clothes and company even more. 

What's your favourite work out gear to wear? 

Have a wonderful weekend!

Wishing you luck to get to the next round! Group interviews are strange, I've been to one before. I LOVE Lorna Jane clothes. I've been a fan since they first opened. I have some running shorts that have lasted me about 8 years and look as good as new. Love their crops and pants too. Ooh fingers crossed you get to work there!

Good luck with the job. Lots of practice with interviews are a added bonus. I've have plenty of practice! I've heard how good quality Lorna Jane clothes are. I should really purchase something from there.

I love that top!! When I get in better shape, I will definitely wear cute things like that to work out... but they have to be comfy too. Right now I usually wear yoga pants and a t-shirt. :)

Eva Marie said...

That sounds like an awesome company, who wouldnt want to work somewhere that you feel great about..
hope it went well :)

Good luck, darling!

Ohhhhh good luck! Looks like they have very cute clothes! Here, lululemon is all the rage . . . I have two pairs of pants from there (and a backpack), but not much else cause it is SO expensive (I got my pants on clearance for $39 each, but normally they are $90 something).

Meri said...

What a cool job! Good luck, and I love the clothes!

Goodluck lady!!! They will be crazy if they dont pick you. I cant afford LJ at the moment but love their stuff, I usually go the target route.

Good luck I hope you get the job x

Claire said...

hope you get the job! The top is lovely, fab colour! x

Alyssa said...

you ended up with a perfect outfit for it!!
my fingers and toes are crossed so tightly for you!

group interviews are so intimidating, you spend the time wondering what they think of the other people!
I asked my boss why they do group interviews and she said that its too see who really really wants the job, many people don't turn up to an interview if its group, they are too nervous.

Can I ask what happened in the group interview? I am going to one this week. Thanks

Anastasia said...

oh dont worry - the interview itself would have been a good experience for you! i hate sports gear - only cause i feel so frumpy in them - some girls usually tall ones pull it off so well - i can never look good in sweats!

Ι thinκ that еverything saiԁ maԁe a greаt
deal of sense. But, what about thіs? suppoѕe уou werе to create а awesome
headline? I аm not suggеѕting your informаtiоn
іs not gooԁ, however ωhat if yоu addеd а poѕt title to maybe
get а pеrsοn's attention? I mean "Job interview..." is a little boring. You could glance at Yahoo's frоnt pagе and wаtch how
thеy сrеаte nеwѕ headlines
to get рeople tо open the links. You might аdd а related video оr
a pictuге oг two to grаb readers еxcited abοut eνerything've written. Just my opinion, it might bring your website a little bit more interesting.
