Got another interview lined up

March 29th, 2011 at 06:12 pm

Guess what? I got another job interview set for this Friday!

This place is a mid-sized company of several hundred people in the business of environmental risk management assessment for consultants, real estate brokers, attorneys, etc. They need a marketing editor. They're about a 40-minute drive, according to MapQuest.

I never heard of them before. It's funny, you think you know most of the employers in your region after living in one place for 25 years, but I guess not!

After I got the phone call from them requesting the interview, I quickly ran out to Cost Cutters and got a $17 hair cut, the first since December. She did an ok job; it does look better than before.

I also sent off a quick email to D******, the big accounting firm I interviewed with about a week-and-a-half ago. The HR person wrote back to say they should come to a decision in a week or two. I felt good because it confirmed for me that they hadn't filled the job yet; however, if it takes too long, it may be a case of the company making an offer and negotiating with someone else; companies can move pretty quickly if they think they've found the right candidate. So the passage of time makes me a little nervous.

I'm excited that I'll have had 2 job interviews close enough together this month so I could, conceivably, have a choice if both places made me an offer....how often does that happen??

What a luxury working from home is.(Of course, I'll be giving that up when i find a perm job.) I was able to get a pork shoulder going in the slow cooker this morning around 7:30 am and by 6 pm it was done. I had a pulled pork sandwich with some steamed broccoli rabe for supper. Yum. At lunchtime, I realized I'd forgotten to get the rolls for the pulled pork, so since I've been trying to walk around mid-day anyway, I decided to walk to the supermarket and then treat myself to Chinese for lunch. So I squeezed in 45 minutes of walking.

My managing editor asked me to start work earlier tomorrow if i could as he has to leave at 5 pm and wants to get as many stories done as possible by that time. I don't think he realizes i usually start around 8 or 8:15 am when I'm home, but anyway, I told him I'd try to start earlier. I take a full hour, sometimes an hour-and-a-half for lunch, and then work til 5 or 6.
