I'm so excited !!!!

  1. For the last week I have been trying to find a job. I have sent my resume out, followed up with emails, and more resumes, and more follow ups.

    Yesterday I got my first phone call for an interview, and I was in the shower. With my hair wrapped up in a towel, I called them back - even before I got dressed! Then I called my husband, still not dressed, to tell him the news. Finally, I start getting dressed and the phone rings...time for a telephone interview in the buff. :chuckle She liked my answers, and asked me to come in Thursday for an interview. This is for hotel reservations for an upscale hotel and resort. Not exactly what I wanted, but it would pay the bills and has great benefits.

    Today, the call I've been waiting for came while I was out running errands. It's for an accounting position, BUT, it will get my foot in the door to the hospital that I want to be a nurse in! I immediately called her back and left a message. :kiss Pleaaaassseee Jesus Pleaaassseee!!!!!! Please pray I get an interview, and not act like a dumbazz in it, and I get the job. I want this job so bad!!!! I have been applying at this hospital for anything and everything. Wish me luck!!!

    I'm so pleased for you and wish you luck. As for acting like a dumbazz just think of the panel as if they are in the nude. Count to 5 before answering questions. If you did not hear ask them to repeat the question. If they give you a 2 part question and you get lost, don't loose it just say can you repeat the second part please.

    Omg, I just double booked myself for an interview! I had one scheduled tomorrow at 1pm, instead of 11am like I thought...this is at the job I would take, but is not my first choice.

    THEN, I sent an email to the other job that I REALLY WANT, saying I could come in to interview during that time!!!!! They are too far apart for me to make it in that time frame with traffic. What do I do???? Do I think positive and cancel the first interview in hopes I will get this accounting job? Or do I reschedule?? The accounting position is looking to hire immediately, and the pay is much better. I don't want to seem too confident, but I have a good of chance as anyone.

    The one thing I'm curious about is the other job having base + commission. I will not work for commission.

    WHAT DO I DO?!?!?!?!!?!?!??! My gut feeling is to cancel the interview with the hotel, and go with the accounting position. My husband is going to ask me when he gets home what I've decided.

    Jeri, good luck.

    I don't know what to tell you about the job interviews; just remember to always have your date book in front of you when scheduling your appointments.

    Hmm...I'd call the first company (the #2 choice) and explain that something came up and ask to reschedule.

    Good Luck!

    A little lie is good. I had a slight fever can we reschedule.

    But but, am I too slow again? (checking the dates)
    Now tell us the news. Becaue it's 27/06 here now.

    I wish you all the best.
