Unexpected Encounter With Nintendo

So, today in class we had an activity called a "Mock Interview" and we had to have an interview with some of the workers from Full Sail University. My mock interview consisted around applying for a Retail Representative job at Nintendo. Naturally, I was a bit nervous as I reminded myself to act as if I'm actually being interviewed by Nintendo. So, here's how it went:

I walk in and I'm greeted by a woman by the name of Jenny Morrison, and the interview went sort of smoothly, however I did make some mistakes, like telling her my weaknesses first, and not having much to say about myself. The nerves were kicking in but as the whole thing went on, it was pretty much smooth sailing. She asked me if I had any questions, I asked her if the gaming industry was something she was into and if she's had experience. Her words were: "Well you see, I'm actually the Hiring Manager for Nintendo."

I had to keep my jaw from dropping, my face was calm but inside I was jumping around,ecstatic. In my whole time at Full Sail University, NEVER have I met someone who worked there that also worked at a game company, much less Nintendo.She even went on further to say that I was perfect for their company. Not for their job, but for the company. She went on to say I had to work on my resume and I should not look so nervous and to not name my weaknesses unless asked and I should be fine in the long run.. She's very interested to see where I'm going to go and even emailed me after I went on to thank her. Needless to say it was the best last day of school I ever had, and right before I graduate college too, how cool!

That's pretty much the story, hopefully this will get my foot in the door to work my dream job at Nintendo. Just thought I would share that with you all, hope you enjoyed. As for me, I'm off to have a cigar,lol.

That's pretty awesome. I'm terrible at interviews, my nerves completely get the better of me. I stutter and visibly shake. No idea why, I'm just bad at talking to people I guess.

I did not do that! I went, I just messed up because I didn't expect one of the things the interviewer requested, and I'm just too shy.
