well, as I'm sure most of you know from my consistent whinging on this issue for many months, I am looking for a job. What I realised today as I was filling out applications, is that many of the jobs I wanted (which are about 1 step up from my current job - slightly more pay, slightly more responsibility, all things I'm sure I can handle) I was too intimidated to apply for.

Like what a foolish thing to worry about - who cares what they think of my application. if they don't like it, they wont call me. Who cares? so today I made an effort to apply for lots of jobs that look like what I want. If they laugh at my cover letter, if they can't believe someone with my experience or whatever wants that job - who cares? they might give me the job!

have you ever felt intimidated by a job application or interview process, even though you knew you were perfectly capable of doing the job? how did you deal with those feelings?
