The application process was similar to every other job you can imagine, but once I scheduled my interview, I blanked. What do you wear to an interview when you know your interviewer is going to be wearing scrubs? I had a psycho-education presentation the morning before my interview at one of Richmond's behavioral health sites, so since I was already going to be dressed nicely, I figured I'd just go as-is. I'm still hoping that was the right move because as I guessed, my interviewer and everyone else I met was in scrubs.
The woman wanted to schedule a follow-up/more hands-on interview, so I figured I would try for today (Thursday) since I was going to be in Richmond anyway. I believe her exact words were: "Great, does 5:30 tomorrow work for you?" I usually get done with clinical around 4pm on Thursdays, so I told her I'd be there - no problem. Then she said something along the lines of "Wonderful, I get here by 4:30 every morning, so come find me up front when you get here." That is when I realized my follow-up interview was at 5:30 am, not 5:30 pm. Yeah.
So this morning I got up at 3:30, hopped in the car, was given some scrubs from the vending machine, and started my "interview" at 5:30. I'm sure all of you out there with small children that regularly start your day at oh'dark-thirty are laughing at me. But I have at least learned to be appropriately clear from here on out when scheduling my interviews, as it turns out, normal rules don't apply. Craaazy.
