You Know it's Bad When I'm Asking for Prayers!

  1. Just a little, anyways.

    I just got done with a 30 minutes telephone interview (I hate those!) with that department store and while it went fine, I got the impression that every.....single.....RN.....within.......3 states..... applied. The recruiter told me how they are taking this job very seriously and are being particular choosey. In other words, it's probably the most competitive job I've applied for. When it's that competitive, divine intervention is needed.

    I know I'm the daughter of the sarcasm fairy, but I could use some good thoughts thrown my way.

    Oh, and Stargazer, you don't have to send any good thoughts because you've already given me invaluable help! :kiss

    Good luck, my friend. I missed the details of the store position, so I don't know what it entails ... but if you want it, I hope you get it.

    By the way, I did my telephone interview for my PhD program over the phone -- while drinking a class of wine. It helped so much, that I did the wine thing again before the phone interview for my current job. (I flew here for an interview after having passed the phone screening.) I recommend a class of wine highly for that situation.

    Susy, I hope you get it. Even though I don't really know what 'it' is, since I haven't been around lately.

    I will definitely send positive, well-wishing thoughts your way.

    And when you get it... I'll come over, and we'll eat rice balls until we're horrifically overfed big fat babies.

    Thanks llg!
    The store position would be a Corporate Wellness Manager, promoting health and wellness to the employees of this major department store (ok - it was Kohl's!). Designing and implementing educational wellness programs and such. It sounds like fun!

    I should've had a glass of wine - that totally would have helped. I have found that having a copy of my resume available helps too.
