Interview #2

Alrighty.  I did the online personality screening for that external company who called me within minutes of applying for their advertised position.  I hit enter and not ten minutes passed before their HR called me and asked for an interview.  They’re pulling schedules together and will me know when early next week.

Then my phone rang again 🙂  One of the medical secretary jobs I applied for (bit of a salary cut but full benefits and I keep my seniority and pension) wants to meet me on Monday.  The physician is not a surgeon (bonus!) and I actually know him from years ago when I worked for a clinic in the same department.  It’s at my favourite campus (not this shitty crumbling building) and I’m well versed in the lingo of that field as I used to do dicta typing for three of the same specialists.  Yay!  D was SO happy to hear that…even with the lower salary.  I’m excited.

There’s still that year temp coverage that I applied for.  I know I’ll be interviewed for that position as it’s a level 2 and I’m currently in the same role, only level 3.  I know the woman I’d be supporting from various committees over the years and she’s dedicated, kind and very smart.  It’s in the Children’s Hospital too which is such a bonus for me.  I’d love to work there…at least most of the peds I know are kind to their patients and think more about their health than the paycheck they’ll get.  That said, I’m not sure what they will do with my benefits and pension if it’s a temp full-time job.  Will interview for both and see what happens!

I think I’ll interview at the external place too.  Can’t hurt right?  Their salary projection is lower than the doc’s office though.  It all depends on where I feel I fit best this time…not just about the money.

D just called me with some great news from his job too.  We’re all having a great Friday it seems!  Hooray!!

I’m off to get myself some lunch.  D and I are going to treat Colt tonight to pizza and arcade games at a local place.  They have bowling, pool, a full on arcade and a restaurant.  It’s like Chuck E Cheese but for grown ups too!  Colt will love it.  I was told to stop and get a lot of quarters.  *giggles*

SO fuck the pain.  I’m having a good day despite it.

    What a difference a day makes. Enjoy the night out

    Take every interview offered. You can decline any offer but going gets your name out there if you have to look again down the road.
