The last Friday in December saw me put in an application for a county job - something within my powers that I could do. I didn’t think much of it but was hoping somebody in the office would see past the cafeteria job I have at the school and read into the freelancing job details. On Monday, someone reviewed my resume, but I never heard. Of course, it being a holiday the next day, I was still anxious.
On Thursday, I was sent an email that I was invited to an interview for today. So, I put my gigs on vacation mode until the 8th and tried to knock out as much work as I could over the weekend. My interview is at 3 today for a deputy position in the accessor’s office. I’ve been up since 2:45 a.m. polishing up on my resume and references, answering questions to myself about what they could ask and developing my own questions for the job.
If I get this position (and it’s something I really want), I may just use the limit orders in queue function and take on what I can feasibly handle on the weekends.
While I love my job at the school, I’ve never seen myself in that position for the rest of my life. I don’t see myself working factory (though it pays really good here) but something that allowed me to be on computers at all times that doesn’t always involve writing.
Maybe if I get this job, I can finally finish my own novel up.
Fingers crossed. I really want this job!
