    Thank you all!

    My interview got rescheduled twice already. LOL

    I like some of your tips--especially about the mirror, and about standing up, and having something comforting nearby!

    Will keep you posted!

    I hope I'm not too late to throw in my $.02. I have one other minor suggestion, although it sounds like you're pretty well ready. Any time I've done a phone interview I've dressed as if I were going for an in person interview, i.e. in a suit. I feel like it makes me feel professional and focused on the task at hand.

    Well, I realize I'm getting back to you a bit late...but you know the old saying!

    I got through it OK (meaning I didn't burst into tears or panic, ha ha) but honestly, I don't think I'll be called for an in-person interview. There were four people, and three of them only spoke when KC, the lady who was leading the interview, spoke to them first to see if they had any questions. Therefore there were a lot of awkward silences; I kept wondering if we'd be disconnected.

    They were very pleasant and all...but I just have a feeling it's not going anywhere.

    Thanks for your advice and good wishes, as always!
