I am VERY glad I prepared as much as I did for the interview.  90% of the material I worked on wasn’t used, BUT I was focused.

I thought I was going to be interviewing for a 30-32 hour per week, entry-level position.


I interviewed for a supervisory position, full-time, salaried.

It’s a professional level position with a really great company.  I am blown away.  I will attempt to contain my hopes about this… but I truly believe it would be an excellent fit for me.

The only comment I have is this:  Much like the situation with Brennan and the Gate homework – this new position would be HUGE for learning and big work compared to what I’m doing now.

Traditional kindergarten is to G/T what this position is to the new position.

I feel confident about how the interview went.  Whether or not the company will share my confidence in my abilities could be subject to the other candidates they interview.  I have both accountancy AND database, plus an education background.


Ok.  I have to let it be.  I was prepared.  I was focused.  I know that the job will be very hard work and it will be a great deal of learning.  I also know that I can do it.   I did my very best in the interview.  I was a bit thrown off by the fact that I wasn’t interviewing for what I thought I was going to be interviewing for (could that be a more awkward or convoluted sentence?  Maybe, if I were Yoda)…

It’s going to be a long wait for the outcome.

A long, long wait.

I’d better be studying hard this week.

Can you say serendipity?

  1. Good luck! Any experience like this is never in vain, if anything it helps you for the future. I have found that often I am surprised at how well I can do when I get out of the way of me!

  2. That is such an exciting feeling – when you feel like you connect with a position and the interview goes well. As one who spent several years hiring people, those are the interviews we *heart* as well.

    Good luck!
