THE Phone Interview - A Recap


My heart is racing. I think the interview went very very well. In fact the interviewer even said as much.

The company? FANTASTIC. Perfect? No. Best in class? Right up there.

But here is where it gets really really freaky.

I applied for a job here in the Chicago area. As we discussed my past and what drives me and how that fits into their company she said something very interesting. She said she wishes I were back in Florida because they have a position that looks to be a PERFECT fit but needs to be run somewhere out of the Florida/Atlanta area.

WHAT?!?!?!?!? Go Home?????? AND Make Money???? The money I'm asking for??????????

So she asked if she could please put me in for that. Well sure - if you think it's a good fit. (note: it's very hard to sound calm and professional when you are dancing around the office - cigarette in one hand and phone to the ear with the other)

So - I'm in the running for both. Lots of competition. But we clicked. That's important. She said I will hear something, either way, by the end of next week. If we move further along, I'd need to be prepared for a face to face soon after that.

So - that's the recap. I'm gonna go lay down for a moment before I leave for my other appointments (I'm exhausted). But I just had to tell went well. :-)
