I did it!

I wore hijab to my interview! (Thanks for the words of encouragement, Stephanie. You really helped a lot.)

It helped me feel a little less nervous (although I was still a LOT nervous, since it's been several years since I've had an interview). I think it looked great - a one piece black al-Amira hijab, a black jacket and trousers, a pink floral blouse, and black heels. Very professional and very feminine. : ) The lady who interviewed me was very nice. She didn't even bat an eye at my hijab. ^_^

She's going to turn in my interview sheet before she leaves tonight, and HR will review it and ((HOPEFULLY!!!!)) will make me an offer between tomorrow and 9 October. *crosses her fingers*

Also, through LK, I found this lady who is *really* studying Islam and the Qur'an, and asking all sorts of nifty questions. I'm looking forward to reading all of her entries.


  1. Glad your interview went well. You sound really nice from the way you described your outfit.

    Yes, I enjoy Sarah's posts already. She's a real thinker and has a lot of good stuff.

  2. Yeah Sarah does have some good things going on

  3. Yay! I'm so glad you did it. Its always hard when you don't wear it for the interview and then want to later.

  4. Thanks so much for the compliment!

    Non-Muslim niqaabi huh? Wow! That is interesting... I'll have to read through your posts at some point ;)

  5. Excellent. I'm pulling for ya!

    Also glad that you decided to go in hijab. Your outfit sounds very nice and professional. :)

  6. Thanks, ya'll! ^_^

    SaraC: You're welcome! I hope you enjoy my posts, and I hope that you don't take any of my comments personally. Like everyone else, my blog expresses my opinion on topics (especially religion, as you'll see), but it's not aimed at people. I love people. Especially the lovely ladies here. : )

  7. Heather, Congratulations! I am so happy for you! And that the lady didn't even bat an eyelash at your hijab :) The outfit sounds very pretty and discreet.

  8. I am very happy that you decided to wear your hijab for your interview. I am very proud that you found your inner strength to do that! Best of luck on the outcome of the interview, I will be reading to see how it went!! : ) ___Stephanie
