Well damn, Ive been busy.

I got "let go" from my job, AKA the business is on it's way to being belly up. Not good. Single mother who is a part time student that pays bills out the wazoo? Not a pleasant situation to be in for the unemployed. So I applied for this job about 3 weeks ago. Project Administrator at an engineering firm. I didn't suspect a call because I sell insurance, what do I know about engineering? The hiring manager e-mailed me and set up a time and date for an interview. I went to the interview completely blind and nervous and I had the nervous poops every 3 minutes. She said the famous line; "We'll call you on Friday".

No call.

Monday rolls around, and she calls me at 5:30 pm. I have a second interview on Thursday. Should I be excited? Is this standard procedure that everyone goes through when they are being interviewed? I have no idea. I've had 2 jobs before, neither of which I had to apply for. I mean, I guess I kind if "applied" to enlist in the Army, but the insurance gig kind of fell into my lap.

I need this job. Badly. My son depends on it. The pay is pretty good, $15 an hour; plus it has benefits. BENEFITS! I haven't had a visit with the doctor since I had my son back in 2007. It is about 112 dollar upgrade per week from my previous job as well.

I need it. I neeeeeeeeeed it.

  3. I don't know...I don't really know you so for all I know you can be a jerk, but my instincts say you're pretty damn cool and you should get this job.

    Seriously, good luck. Hope you get the job, and if I was religious i'd pray for you.

  4. Good luck, job hunting right now sucks. I've been on more interviews than i can count on one hand and i still haven't landed a job.

    And yes, a second interview is good. They weed out the crap with the first interview, and the second interview means they are really interested in you.

  5. Sorry for spamming you, you know it's not my policy, but I just want to tell all participants of the "A piece of me" game that I've moved my blog to welovetoothfairy.com!

    btw... if you want to follow me, you'll need to sign up again, as I've noticed people were having trouble following me, so I've deleted the old google connect!
