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".
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.
