I GOT THE JOB!!!!! Ok, I had to get that out of my system. I was big time hitting the Panic Button yesterday afternoon, and I ended up reaching out to the recruiter again. I got her voicemail (again), and was try to shut my anxiety the hell up and convince it that I wasn't… Continue reading I’m going to let the first sentence of this post speak for itself
I'm still waiting for the official offer letter. It's driving me crazy. They told me I'd have it by today. but when I reached out to my contact after mid-day, the call went to voicemail. I'm trying not to panic, but I know if I don't hear from her tomorrow that I'm going to. I'm… Continue reading Still waiting, and stuck in another way
I heard back today, my background check is back and looks good, so they offered me a job. I'm shocked, ecstatic, nervous, and I still feel like it's a big joke. But it's not. I'll have an official offer letter on Monday (the recruiter wasn't exactly sure what my pay was going to be as… Continue reading It finally happened
Both interviews today went really well. The one this morning was the big one - the final interview for a position I've been interviewing for for two months. Ultimately, we decided (mutually), that the position I was interviewing for wasn't a good fit yet. I needed some experience at a slightly lower level and then… Continue reading I think I may have done it
Tomorrow is the big day - 2 interviews! The final with the first company, and the first with the second company. I don't know if I can take this much excitement in one day. In other words, I don't know if I can take this much anxiety in one day. Interview A is 45 minutes… Continue reading I’m trying not to throw up or panic
I had a whole post written last night in a response to a pin I saw on Pinterest with the "7 Cardinal Rules of Life." The cat walked across my keyboard, put my laptop in airplane mode (which I did not notice), and a series of unfortunate clicks before I realized what the problem was,… Continue reading The audacity of… hope?
About a week ago my Big Box Store Boss came to and said a position was opening up that they wanted me to apply for. I had worked for this same company (different store) doing this job while I was in college ten years ago. Granted, in ten years things have changed, but I was… Continue reading When it rains it pours, apparently.
I haven't heard anything back from the job last week, and I'm trying not to go into panic mode. Last time it took a week to get back to me, and the guy I interviewed with did say that he was moving me onto the next stage. Still, the panic is creeping in. I'm still… Continue reading A little of this, a little of that, and a few updates
It's been a big week. Had interview number 2 yesterday, and it went really well. At the end of the interview he actually said, "You know, I almost didn't call you in for an interview. Your resume is quite odd. But I'm glad I did, because I think you could be an asset to the… Continue reading A ray of hope and my therapist points out that I’m kind of an idiot
I have an interview tomorrow. A big one. This is one of the last hurdles to clear for the position. And I'm utterly terrified. I know, academically, that it's my anxiety and two years of a combination of hearing nothing back and thanks but no thanks emails talking, but I can't help it. I'm literally… Continue reading I’m quite literally a bundle of nerves
