About that interview…

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.

When it Rains…

Guess what?

Wednesday night, around 9:30 p.m., I get an email from someone. It’s the guy who interviewed me on Wednesday for the permanent job. The one close to home, with benefits and vacation and a good salary and all that.

And they want to see me on Thursday, November 11.

No times have been established yet. I still can’t fit in my interview suit. I’ve not lost any weight I know of. I’m due to start the temp gig on Monday, November 15. Lots up in the air.

Looks like things are getting interesting.

Have a great weekend, all.

And the verdict is…

… still out.

Meaning, at the time of this writing, I haven’t heard anything back from either job interview. I did my duty and sent the interviewers thank you emails. I just have to wait now and see what, if anything, happens now. (Remember, I got a couple of interviews in August too. Nada from either.)

For those unaware, I had two job interviews scheduled. Getting a job would be good overall – God KNOWS how good overall – but the companies are offering different things. The first company, with which I interviewed on Wednesday, is offering a full-time, permanent job. That’s what I want. It’s also beyond my capabilities at this point. Getting one, I mean, not what they’re offering. It sounded interesting, pays within a range which I need, and is closer to home than I’ve been in a while. Not a lot, but some.

The second was a job until the end of the year with a possible extension for a few months. It pays all right. It’s a contract so no benefits or sick days or vacation or nothin’. I’m also disposable. And it means getting up at 4:30 a.m. to get to work by 8 a.m., including an hour and a half train ride. The train ride the day I interviewed was pretty interesting, too. For one thing, the train was almost 20 minutes late. I got into my interview about 15 minutes late, but only because the recruiter picked me up in a cab at the train station. That will NOT be happening every day. And for the first day, I won’t have the luxury of the shuttle. I’ll have to walk. I did that from the interview and I’d like to say, I’m in a lot of trouble if I have to do that every day. A LOT of trouble.

I won’t go into that now. But the cost of the train and stuff makes me want that one even less. Problem is, I think they want ME and I’ll need to decide soon. I don’t want to have to choose, but I’ll have to.

Wish me luck, say a prayer, whatever you like to do. And thanks for listening.

Have a GREAT weekend, you guys.

Friday Frolics

Okay, I dn’t “frolic” – but those of you who know me already know that.

I didn’t post anything this morning because I really don’t have anything ot say. Bu tnow, I have a request:

Anyone out there who owns a Kindle who would like to preview my new e-book and tell me if it looks okay, please send me an email today, ASAP. I’ll be going live with this thing this weekend no matter what, so it’s my only chance to have someone look at it in its native environment.

Buddy and fan Raga is already onboard; anyone else?

In other news – no word yet on the job interview. I thought I’d hear soemthing today, but if not, it probably means I got passed over for someone more qualified or with better  (read:more current) work experience. Oh well. If not this, there’s a reason, and I’ll trust in the Lord to bring more where this came from and be grateful for what I have.

Hm. Let’s see. Once this Kindle book is up, I’ll go to Samshwords and do it all over again. Maybe this time I’ll just use a raw HTML file, like buddy Bryce does. If you have an eReader that isn’t a Kindle, maybe you’ll be interested in getting it there?

See? Toldja I have nothing to say.

Thanks, God bless, and have a good weekend everyone.
