I have another job interview today.  It is for a different job.  It is an Executive Assistant position.  I think they have already decided who will get the job and it is not me.  Keep your fingers crossed that I change their minds.  I was excited about the duties of the other job, but this one is a higher pay grade.

Keep your fingers and toes crossed for me.

Have a great day!

Thank you for all the well wishes on my job search. I need all the encouragement that I can get.  I still haven't heard anything yet.  I'll keep you posted.  Queenie announced today that she didn't think that either of us were qualified for the position.  I wanted to say, "Speak for yourself".  Hopefully, there will be some news soon.

BFF MAB overheard a great job opportunity that she would like to pursue, but the problem is that she was not supposed to overhear it.  I hope it will work out in her favor.

I hope everyone has a great weekend.

I had a telephone job interview today.  The position is a Senior Administrative Assistant.  I assumed that it would be halfway between a regular Administrative Assistant and an Executive Assistant.  That's what I prepared for.  Boy was I wrong.  This position was very involved, but it seemed to play on my background and a lot of my job skills.  As they were explaining the position, my mind was going ninety miles an hour trying to regroup.  It was going so fast that it crashed.  Whenever they would ask a question, my mind would go blank.  Then I would ramble on.  I can't even remember half of the stuff that I said.  At least at the end when they asked what qualifications that I thought that I could offer, I noted several things.  Maybe I redeemed myself some with those.  I originally wanted the Executive Assistant position, but I think this is better job for me.  I guess I'll just see how things go.  If they like me, I'll have a face to face interview next week.  Maybe with my navy suit and navy Ferragamo Veras, I'll get my confidence back.  We'll see.

I hope everyone has a great Friday.

More drama on the Queenie front.  Last week, someone called her about a job for which she had posted.  She got really upset.  She said that she felt pressured.  It was almost like she didn't realize that if she posted for a job that they would actually call and talk to her.  She said that she was afraid that they don't want her to get her severance.  Of course they don't!  Plus, why would you post for a job if you have no plans of interviewing for it?  Go figure!  She did get a call about a position and she actually acted excited about it.  Will wonders ever cease?!?!  I got a call about the same position.  We both had a telephone interview and were escalated to the position of candidate. 

This past weekend, I relaxed, cooked and hung some pictures.  I got caught up on all of my recorded episodes of Murder, She Wrote and Perry Mason Mysteries.

I will keep you posted on all of the drama at work.  I just sit there real quiet and watch her in action.

Have a great Tuesday!
