Passing Out and Moving On


Dr. Emad Rahim – CTU Business Alum and Real-World Faculty Member

I was interviewing for a position at a trade association and I just had gotten better from being sick. I thought I was feeling better; I thought that I could do this. I didn’t want to miss this opportunity, and I fainted in the middle of the interview amongst, you know, these leaders. I mean we’re talking about blackout. The people that were interviewing me were helping me get up and sit down. I think the executive director at the time got me some water. They even asked me if I wanted to continue this interview, which I did not want to do. I politely excused myself. This is embarrassing. I really wanted to kind of forget about that experience. But years later, I realized that was a learning opportunity that I could laugh at and grow and learn from. With the right education, it provides you the self-confidence to get back in that room. To pick yourself off of the ground after you faint.
