Or at least I am hoping.
I had my face-to-face/video conference interview Wed for the job I really want. Of course following most interviews you contemplate all the answers you should have given versus the rambles you did give. Some of us kick ourselves and wish for a do-over. Well today, I did get my chance to expound on 3 items that came up during my 2nd interview. 1. An issue was raised about my needing training. I think that was taken out of context from my telephone interview. 2. Working in a fast pace environment. Everyone thinks their environment is faster paced than others. Science is a hurry up and wait arena. So you learn how to balance priorities and stretch out the days, if needed. 3. What would I look for in an admin (if I was on the other side). Future goals, an interest in constant learning and great customer service skills.
These folks know I can do the job, now it's time to see if the personalities will fit. I promise to squash the voices in my head and keep my personalities to 1, if hired. So I welcomed today's one-on-one coffee meeting. I know the group was impressed when I showed up with writing samples on Wed and I think today's person was even more impressed because I came with written notes from Wed's interview. I think she likes my anticipation level.
So I sit here in anticipation of news. And prepare for another interview Monday. What will I wear (I only have 1 interview suit which now needs to go to the cleaners).
Thanks Merry and Kim for your votes of confidence and well wishes.
