That job interview I had yesterday... Well, I have a REALLY good feeling about it. Everything seems to be lining up cosmically. Hell, I even got saved from a major blunder before I went in to it. I did my research on what I thought was the appropriate state agency. Turns out that I was interviewing for a division of a different state agency with the same name as the state agency! I panicked for a second until I noticed that someone left a copy of the agency's 2009 annual report in the waiting room. Fifteen minutes with that provided me with more information than I would have found on my own. More importantly, I feel far more passionate about what this agency does and I think it changed my interview from "I'd like a job" to "I'd really like to work here". Got a few laughs out of the interviewers. Had a couple followup questions for them. They had a couple for me. As fate would have it, I also applied for another position there last month and forgot about it so they're considering me for both positions. Honestly, I think both positions are really punching above my weight a little, but I've always risen to the occasion and it's not so much that I can't do the jobs, rather that I've never done certain aspects. However, One of the things that has gotten me ahead is that I've learned very intricate specialized subjects for the firms I've worked for. Unfortunately, it's also been of little use getting other jobs because the work I've done is so specialized that it usually has little direct use for prospective employers. The work this agency needs, I can do. I just need to be shown a few things first.
For the first time in a long time, I actually think the interviewers are interested in me. And for the first time in a long, long time, I'm really interested in them. I've got a really good feeling about this. Jeebus wiling and the crick don' rise, I think I will be employed within the next two weeks. I only hope the act of talking about it won't jinx it all.
That is all...for now.
