Step In The Right Direction

I couldn't sleep last night. It's been over ten years since I had to do an interview for a job. Ten freaking years?! Wow.

~*Okay so we were all herded into a room and was told we were getting laid off, but it felt like a sticky note was left on our desk*~

I got up this morning with anticipation, my interview wasn't until 11:00 a.m. MST, but dammit I was excited. No butterflies, not nervous just so damn happy!

I have been in a call center environment since I was at the legal age to work, so it seems like forever. When I moved here to Colorado in 2000, I started at the job that laid me off this year. I worked my way up to the highest department that the company had. Yay! I was in that department, The Office of the President, for two and a half years, until the blade came down on the guillotine. WHACK! That was in June.

~*This was my cubicle. Home away from home*~

So I was so super excited to get an email stating that they would like to do a phone interview. The phone interview went well, and I was set up for an in-person interview which was for today. I was ten minutes early, and I think that helped out a little bit too. I feel it went well. It was only a twenty minute interview, and I think I am way qualified for this job. It's the same call center customer service job, but it's a job and it's money! It will have to hold me over until I finish school for my Mortuary Science Degree, which starts in January and runs for three years. One year pre-requisites and the two year associates.

I will know by the end of this week or the beginning of next week that I have the job. That's right HAVE, because there is no other option dammit! I really need a job.

Great positive thinking - you're right, you HAVE this job. You kicked the crap out of that interviews ass and are a shoo in (no idea how to spell that) for this sucka.

I remember feeling a bit lost on my last job interview. I had held the same job for 22 years prior to that before deciding to make a change.

Sounds like what my friend went to. He was working at Border's but because it was only for the holidays he was laid off and then after like 7 months he is now working at Sears.

A couple of years after I got out of the Army, I went on a shit-ton of interviews. Just so I could turn the jobs down. Oh, that felt so good.

Good luck! My husband waited almost a month before he found out he got his job earlier this year. that was a stressful month!

*knock, knock* I'm good but my job is kicking my ass. We insure ski resorts so this time of year is crazy busy. *sigh* So, glad to hear your interview went well and I expect to hear good news in a few days. Time for you to get back on your feet and move forward with your life ... and leave the jackasses behind. :-D
