Yesterday when I got to work, I had an email from a former coworker asking if Coworker and I knew of someone that would be interested in an adm. asst. position. I immediately emailed her back and told her of Coworker's and my circumstance. I told her that I had a rough draft of my resume. She told me to send it to her. I have an interview on Monday!!! Wish me luck. Coworker is waiting about a month to look for a job, because she thinks her husband may be transferred to another state. I hope you don't think I went behind her back for this job. If we were both looking for a job, we would have sat down and discussed it. My boss told me that he would give me a good recommendation. I need to email my former boss. I know he will give me a recommendation. This is almost too good to be true. My only fear is the salary. Right now, I'm an executive administrative assistant. This job is at a company that is making a lot of money right now, so maybe they will be able to meet my present salary and benefits. I don't want to think about it or talk about it much, because I'm afraid that I may jinx myself. I asked my sister to look at my resume to see if the grammar is okay. She immediately sat down at the computer and completely redid it. I didn't think about sister having a master's degree in English, plus she does resumes for people.

I don't really have that many professional summer clothes. Our office has always been rather casual since we don't see very many people. I think I am going to wear my cream/navy nada print shirtdress, my Brooks Brothers' Wilma Flintstone pearls, my navy Fitz & Frannie silk knot earrings and my navy Ferragamo Veras. The office where I'm going is very casual, but I want them to think that I care about my appearance.

I'll keep y'all posted.

I hope everyone has a great weekend. Again, wish me luck!!
