Interview Report

Who knows how well an interview, or series thereof, went in the eyes of the interviewers, but in my own eyes I think I did remarkably well yesterday and today, doing my best to convince the people who don't already know me that I am a super-dee-duper candidate for the job I want. I got some really good feedback, which encouraged me. And no matter what, I enjoyed getting to meet the people up the chain from my immediate supervisor, as well as the fellow from outside our organization (they always have one of those). People here are really smart and have lots of cool experiences, so I learned a bunch. I also asked good questions, I hope. I wanted to come off as interested in the business and interested in the specific job. More than one person asked me where I saw myself in the future, and I think I answered that well--said I wanted to keep this job for a while, then perhaps move into management (since I have all that experience, doncha know). I actually think, if I get the job, I might be groomed to replace my boss, who has her own plans. In any case, it was interesting!

Most interesting was the discussion of salary and benefits, which made me soo happy, as did the information that there are a number of positions that might work out if this one does not. The thing is, of course, that I like it here for personal reasons. But, work's work, and I can keep my friends if I am elsewhere.

I am still concerned about the threatened incident at the Older Boy's school, but there is apparently nothing parents can really do other than make sure their kids report suspicious things. And, sigh, the younger one did really poorly on his report card, in his eyes. We're gonna work on that.

Suna, I wore "the ring" today and thought of you and your interview. I hope that the right thing for you is what ends up happening.

I am sure you knocked their socks off! I think we often underestimate how well we do in things like interviews so if you felt it went well, then there is no doubt that it did!! I've been vibing for you all week and was thinking of you Friday especially!!!Take care
