So that interview I mentioned I might have the other day? I had it this morning. It wasn't terrible, but it really doesn't feel like the right job for me. There were some aspects of it that I enjoyed, but not enough good parts to make the job sound like a good decision. I found that to be a little disappointing, until...
my cell phone rings on the way home from the interview. It's a lady responding to the resume I sent regarding her ad on Craigslist. She sounds very impressed and wants me to come in to interview as soon as possible. I make an appointment for tomorrow (Friday) at 1pm. She says she'll send an email with an address so I can get directions.
I get home and check my email. There is an email from someone else, responding to a job application I submitted. Honestly, it's been long enough since I applied for this position, I forgot I applied in the first place. I have apparently passed their first round of screenings. I need to answer a question and email my response back if I'm still interested, then they'll consider taking me on to the next round of interviews. I oblige.
I make lunch, a big bowl of veggie soup and a few frozen chicken nuggets. I watch Paula Deen and Rachel Ray cook stuff on the Food Network. I call my mom to give her all the job news. I call my doctor's office about a question they had, which turns out was already solved before I called them.
I get another phone call, this one from a woman at a nonprofit I recently applied to, and I speak with her for 10 or 15 minutes. She's doing phone screens for their job applicants, I assume to figure out who's still interested, who's not a psycho, and who's good with all kinds of crazy multi-tasking. I'm a "yes" on all of those things, so we chat for a bit, and she knows to keep me in the running. She seemed pretty confident that I'll get another call. Of course, this means more waiting.
I wonder if I'll get any more phone calls today? Or even tomorrow? Has anyone told you, when looking for a job, that when it rains, it pours? I've been told that, but I didn't really believe it until today. Let's hope for speedy follow-up from the folks who followed up with me this afternoon!
Also, random poll of the day...if you have an insulin pump, where do you put it when you go on a job interview, or even an important meeting where you don't want other people to necessarily notice it? My pump came to my interview this morning tucked away in my bra. I've been on an interview before and had it fall out of my pocket! I want to avoid those situations when I can. Now if only I knew where I packed that Thigh Thing when we moved....
