I’m sitting on pins and needles!
This past Monday, I went to my second interview for a job I really want. The President/CEO introduced himself to me and escorted me to a conference room, where three VP’s were waiting. It felt like High Noon and I was being delivered to the Hangman’s Noose:
Nah, it wasn’t intimidating at all.
The President asked, “Is this okay?”
One hour was slotted for me to field several questions and as I answered each of them with confidence, I noticed my mouth becoming extremely dry, making it next to impossible to speak.
On a scale of 1-to-Sahara, I was pacing myself near Sahara + Mojave. It wasn’t fun and all I could think about was WATER!
I’m sure it was a side-effect of nervousness, even though I think I appeared calm, cool, and collected on the outside. I hope I did anyway.
Afterward, I was told that I would hear something in the next 5 days.
Well, today is day 5 and to be honest, I have a gut feeling that I did NOT get the job, even though during my very first interview, the VP said I was his top choice. Why don’t I think I got the job, you ask? Women’s intuition.
We’re usually right about these things, but it won’t change the gut-wrenching impact that will be felt when the news is delivered. I will be like:
I only hope I’m wrong, because it would be nice to hear:
Followed by, “You got the job.” We’ll see. I think it’s just wishful thinking on my part.
In the meantime, I hope everyone has a great Friday!
