Employment Update

There hasn't been much to say lately on this front. I quit the temp job before vacation for numerous reasons (all of which I stand heartily behind) and haven't done much since we've returned because, well, there isn't much out there. This week I applied for a Marketing Coordinator position at a local engineering company. The next day I set up a phone interview for today. So, very quick turn around.

The phone interview went ok. It's been awhile since I've actually had an interview. Nothing in the last year, so it felt strange answering all those questions. I used too many fillers, sadly. Hopefully that's not a deal breaker. I also don't know if I answered the "why should I bring you in for an interview or hire you for this position?" Ugh. The WORST question because in my opinion, I sent my resume, it speaks for itself. I wouldn't have sent it if I didn't think I was the best candidate for the job.

After the interview, I sent 4 writing samples as requested. Hopefully they make an impression. I haven't heard if she received them. I would like to think that she would acknowledge receipt, but you never know these days.

And now I wait. I was told they would start in-person interviews next week or the following. Which is fine. I don't have a lot planned. I'm free. So, we shall see what happens. Maybe I'll have an in-person interview. Maybe not. I just hope she has the courtesy to tell me either way.


  1. Good lukc. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you!

  2. Thanks. We shall see. Sent my writing samples over, but haven't heard anything. Not even if she got them. I will be emailing her tomorrow just to confirm she received them. I don't think that's being pushy.
