I know a lot of you were praying for and rooting for me yesterday as I went into my job interview. I wanted to take a moment to say thank you to everyone for the support. Knowing you guys are out there offering me your encouragement and hope is a great feeling. Thank you all.
I don’t know what the outcome is at this point. It was pretty exciting yesterday, I can say that. I got there to find out three candidates were being interviewed in rounds by an interview team of five people connected to the position somehow, including the guy who vacated the job (he got a promotion). It will be tough to fill his shoes. To my credit, though, he felt I wouldn’t have any trouble doing so.
The hiring manager, as I made my way out of the building, told me to make sure I get the application filled in and returned. I said I would (they emailed it to me), and would be expeditious in doing so. He said, “It’s okay, we know where you work.” Freudian slip? Hm. I wondered on it for a few minutes driving home.
I like the job. I like the company. I liked the people a lot, but it’s hard to tell in just a few minutes. I hope I get it. I returned my application to them in the wee hours of last night and now all I can do is hope I’m the best of the three candidates. I’ll follow up with and email to see if they got my application later this afternoon, and I’ll be sure – SURE – to let everyone know if I hear something.
Meanwhile, Monday I start the hellacious commute, and I’m not finished with the Slurp yet. (I told them last week I’d be likely to miss the deadline.)
Keep your fingers crossed! We can use all the prayers we can get. 🙂
God bless and have a great weekend.
