Online Content Editor (post 2) Invitation to Interview

Thank you people, for all your lovely good karma!!

In response to yesterday's application for the Online Content Editor position I had a phone call this afternoon! We chatted about what I'm doing (I gave this course a plug), what I've done in the past (I was in the car on the mobile and had to pull over to the side of the road because it was going to take a while!), and what my hoped for salary was (I've undersold myself as usual). How was full-time work going to affect my commitments? All good. She said it sounded as though I'd fit the bill and could I come in this Friday at 9am (of course). I understand this is probably only the first interview (a 40-minute chat) and could I possibly provide more information (I had thought the screeds of stuff would put them off and they want more detail - you see you never can tell). They would like me to 'expand my CV' giving more on my 'experience and achievements by role' so they can see how my 'knowledge fits' with what they're looking for.

A couple of hours work in this I think...

Funniest thing though - this is why we should never burn our bridges - their office is directly above the office of my old workplace in the city. So I'll be able to have coffees with the old team, too.

Any interview pointers would be much appreciated, blog buddies. Thanks again.
