I thought I would update you on my interview.  This is not the news that I want to report, but I did not get the job, nor did the other two candidates that interviewed.  They are going outside to find the skill sets that they are looking for.  I asked what skill sets that I was lacking.  The recruiter said that I looked fine, except that I did not have experience with large event planning.  That was the one thing about the position that I found intimidating. 

When I got home, I had a message from another recruiter.  I imagine that this is my call to let me know that I did not make the cut.  As I'm writing this, I'm waiting for someone at another company to call me about a job.  She wanted to do the call after hours. 

What is so weird about everything is I have this unusual good feeling about everything.  It is almost scary.

Someone asked if my company was going out of business.  No, it did not go out of business.  It was bought.  The former company was a U.S. bank owned by a huge global bank.  They sold us to a large U.S. bank.  The department where I work is being eliminated.  Everyone was displaced.  Luckily, Queenie has been there 24 years and I have been there 20.  We will get a good severance if we stay until our work through date.  I'm not much of a risk taker.  If a great job surfaces before then, I'm going to jump on it.

Thanks to everyone that wished me well.  Maybe I will have some good news soon.

I hope everyone has a great Friday.

It sounds like you have a good attitude about things and that will go a long way throughout this process.

Good luck !
