I am in the state of decision making. You know, that thing you have to do as a grown up that can change the course of things for you. The little decisions that can become big decisions. The big decisions that can turn into even bigger decisions.
Okay, I’m rambling.
I am considering a job that allows me to work from home. In fact, everyone who works for this particular company, works from home. It is a permanent, full time job with benefits. The pay is about the same (a little more, in fact) than what I’m making now, too.

Ladies and gentleman…
I have a job interview today! Sorry I haven’t posted in a while, but I am proud to announce that I have a job interview this afternoon for a social networking job. This job is perfect for me and I have supposedly already impressed the CEO with my writing samples. It’s out of state too, which is awesome because I don’t like where I live.
It’s been a stressful weekend, though, I’ve messed up three pots of coffee this morning, broke one hotel coffee pot already and finally after an hour of attempting, I finally have one cup of decent coffee in me.

I’m totally happy! Just like this![/caption]
I have some pretty exciting news!
In case you didn’t hear, I had an interview last Wednesday. The interview went great and actually went better than any interview I’ve had so far. It’s for a fantastic job that I can’t believe I might get (entry level marketing…EXACTLY what I’ve been hoping for).
And guess what??
I received an email from them yesterday asking for my references!! I’m so excited!!
So we’ll see where this goes. I’m pretty sure it’s in the bag unless one of my references says something really awful. Here’s hoping THAT won’t happen.

Well, I went on my interview Monday and I thought it went pretty good!
I LOST ONE OF MY EARRINGS BEFORE/DURING/AFTER THE INTERVIEW!!!!!
This can only happen to me.
Is this happening because I have a blog about it? Is that jinxing me, or something?
Okay, it went like this.
I go into the interview and three people are there to interview. Totally fine. And I can’t help but notice one of the managers (a guy around my age) keeps eyeballing me. Now, I know I look good all stylish, but trust me, this was not a “I’m checking you out” look. This was a “what the hell is wrong with you” look.

A funny job interview is a bad idea. Are you still laughing?
About a month ago I got a phone interview for a position I was extremely excited about. It was in the publishing industry and this is definitely an area I can see myself thriving in. I passed the first interview and a week and a half later I walked into the front doors of their building for my in person interview.
The first in person interview I had since being out of work, by the way.
I smile at the receptionist. I am friendly to the lady who reviews my application before I do the sit down interview. I am dressed very professionally having bought a few new items for the big day. Ten minutes later I shake the hand of the hiring manager. I walk into the meeting room and shake the hand of the publication manager.
