I was one of the lucky candidates to receive and LOA and I was deemed medically cleared, but I lack a nomination. I am not eligible for a presidential nomination. I recently had an interview with individuals from Interim Senator Chiesa's office (NJ) and was denied. I am trying not to get discouraged, because I want this more than anything in the world. Can anyone give me specific tips on how to handle the interview. I was very uncomfortable as I had never been interviewed before Chiesa(my BGO interview was more of a lecture). How can I improve my chances for next time? What is definitely positive to say(the truth obviously, but beyond that), and what is a no-go? Any tips are much appreciated, and I can add any credential information if requested.
