I woke up yesterday morning with two interviews scheduled and one to follow up with. I would rather go on 1,000 first dates than go interview but apparently they won’t give you a job if they don’t meet you first. The part I dislike so much about interviewing is having to toot your own horn so much. I really enjoy meeting the interviewers and picturing myself working in their office but it’s hard to be the center of attention. I love selling things, ideas, that just aren’t me.
Despite that, I think both interviews went really well. I know that there was a lot of competition for the first one but I do not think it is a total lost cause either . The second interview was very interesting. I went into the hiring agency that my roommate used to get her current position. I met with a few people and things were going well and then suddenly I was being asked if I would like to come and work for them. I was being recruited by the recruiters to recruit. Hm.
I am intrigued by the prospect though and was actually thinking about how one gets a job at a hiring agency as I was sitting in their waiting room. Or lobby. Front office?
It seems like opportunities are pouring in right now. What is going on? Has someone bewitched me? I can only hope that my luck keeps going and I can actually land one of these amazing jobs.
Today, the heat wave has broken from a collection of beautiful storms that blew in yesterday. It is actually comfortable in my apartment now. I am not sweating. I am not sticking to everything I touch. Hallelujah!
Going out to a Grubwithus.com dinner tonight to meet some young professionals and entrepreneurs. Haven’t heard of them? Check them out, right now. Oh yeah, they offered me a job too.
Thank you, New York City. Sometimes you really know how to make a girl feel good.
