Get A Job, Part 8 of 738

November 2, 2008

I have a job interview next week.   WOO HOO!

For an inside sales position, doing inventory control, being nice to vendors, supporting the outside sales staff.   Not brain surgery, probably hectic, and hopefully one that is only annoying between the hours of clock-in and clock-out.   By that, I mean, that they can’t call me after hours and wonder ‘What about….?   Can you come in and fix this?’  etc.

I have no idea what they will be paying, nor if the feeling that the job is mine if I want it is a trustworthy feeling.    Also, I have no idea if I want it!    somewhat based on that pay issue, somewhat not.

I sometimes compare job hunting with that of finding a spouse.    I’ve been lucky in love and extremely unlucky in jobs.      But the job dance requires a decision once an offer is made and I will be dreading that.     Oh well.   Can’t we ‘date’ for awhile before I have to commit?    What if a better job comes along 2 weeks after I start this one?   What will I do then?

Yes, I have applied for a job with a university – which sounds oh-so-glamorous!!!! – but they are still reviewing applications.   I may not even get an interview.   But what if I do?

Stay tuned to find out what happens!



  1. Best of luck! Go at ’em, C!

    You betcha!

  2. Oh, I am soooo tuned in to see what happens. As a matter of fact, I’m more anxious than YOU! LOL. 😉

    I appreciate you sharing in this anxiety burden! It lessens it to know that, thank you.

  3. Good luck! The best jobs are the ones that are only stressful between 9-5 or whatever the hours happen to be. Keep us posted!

    Just found out it is a salary position. Not even commission! for a sales, ya know? which amazed me somewhat. A Holiday bonus isn’t even a given. COME ON! WHere’s my Christmas Turkey!?

  4. Good luck, and if you get this job and a better one comes along, jump ship. You gotta do what’s best for you. 😉

    Thank you, you are SO right. It’s still difficult to have expectations and see them dashed no matter who’s expectations they are. I’m feeling bad for McCain right now, I feel so bad that he tried so hard. Not that I voted for him, maybe I did. Maybe I didn’t.

  5. Oh! Yay C! I will be sending up good thoughts for you! GOOD LUCK!

    Thanks Sweetie. Rest now and read that book! Glad it arrived safely.
