Good day, friends! I am home from my interview, and I feel like it went well. It was a panel interview, so I sat at the head of a large table in a conference room with four people to my left and three to my right. ::insert sarcasm here:: I wasn't at all intimidated. Almost asked if I got to pray since I was seated at the head of the table (is that how it works in your household, too?). Anyway, they took turns asking lots of "Tell me about a time when...what was the outcome...how did you feel?"-type questions. They then opened the floor for any questions or concerns I might have. Of course, I was thinking of the little 3x5 notecard that was tucked away in my purse and trying to remember what I wrote down. Better yet, I strained my poor brain to recall what all of the job interview books said NOT to ask (Ex: If I'm hired, when's my first vacation?). I asked about whether or not all units had 12-hour shifts, for further clarification of the residency program and about access to their onsite fitness center for employees, and that was that. I was told that they would be in touch by week's end but that the residency doesn't start until the end of January. I knew that going into the interview, but was sure hoping that maybe there was an off chance that they could squeeze me into the residency that just started this month. This means that even if I get the job, we still have to make it through Christmas, the New Year and property taxes coming due before I ever even start. *sigh* That makes me sad because last year was truly a blessing because of the actions of angels here on earth (click here to read about that). I just knew I would be able to pay it forward and help someone else this year, but it looks like that might not be the case. Then again, I could still get the seasonal job giving flu shot that I applied for last week. I am awaiting word from them. I have faith that in the end it will all work out.
