Post Interview

Well, the interview went well, which is good. I didn’t get to bed till after 3 a.m. but luckily dropped to sleep fairly quickly. It was a bit of a mad dash trying to find my interview clothes. So much got moved around when I was doing the bedroom floors and hasn’t returned to their regular spots. I panicked I wouldn’t find my ties (I did) and my belt (dropped into a pile of clothing on the floor in another room). I also panicked when I thought I was out of white undershirts — but I had one left in the drawer.

Good news — it is a legit contract gig with a mix of remote and onsite if I need to chat with the engineers about a project. Could be more work than advertised, but that’s not a deal-breaker (depending on what the hour total actually is — I do want time for other clients and my own project), but we’ll see).

It’s a manufacturing company (commercial and upscale residence windows), but it’s not boring like one would expect. It’s got a cool vibe about it — their main building reminds me of a start-up business — a slide going from the second floor to the first; ping-pong table, cool places to take a break, etc.

Anyway, the senior editor was interesting and she has a background in journalism. She said I’m one of the stronger candidates and only the 2nd one who rated an in-person interview, so we’ll see how it goes!

Thanks to everyone for the good wishes.

      Actually, there might have been. There were several table games, but I was busy trying to look purfeshunel and pay attention to the interviewer.

    2. I was employed for a short time by a company where you had free oranges all the time, which allowed bringing your pet to work and had a room with a couch where you could relax when you feel stressed out or sleepy (read: not in the mood for work).

        The couch would be awesome. I’m too used to getting free junk food and pizza to enjoy oranges. It’s sad that I prefer that stuff.
