guess who is almost employed??

ready for a fun job search update? as of last week, I had three interviews scheduled with different schools in the area... I had a phone interview Friday [in the middle of packing up our pods], an interview Monday morning [we got into town on Sunday afternoon], and a phone interview scheduled for yesterday....


so the interview on Friday went well - but it just wasn't a great fit... I knew I would be overworked and underpaid and the position wasn't one I was crazy about [never a good combination] - but hey, when you're unemployed you can't be picky... so my interview Monday was AMAZING -  I really liked the people, the school is appealing to me on a lot of levels [hello pHd program, and its in the area we eventually want to live in] and it is a new position with so many aspects that I love, and [this is extremely important to me] it was a job that  - I thought it went well, and I guess I was right because I got an email two days later that said this...


Hi A:

While we cannot yet officially make an offer, I wanted to let you know that you are our first choice for the position and we are pulling together the paperwork so that HR can put its wheels in motion.

We were really impressed by your credentials and by your energy and enthusiasm for the position!  We will be back in touch when we have an answer from HR.  Meanwhile, feel free to contact me with any questions.

We are very happy that you applied for the position!

All best wishes,
J



I also got a call from the people on Friday asking me to move forward in the process, I respectfully declined stating I didn't think it would be a good fit and also cancelled my Thursday interview... needless to say...


ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. so. freaking. happy.

hooray for [almost] being employed [and health insurance]!

...now onto a fun family-filled weekend!
