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?
