I had my job interview this past week. I didn’t get the job. But it was a great experience.
For the possibly the first time ever, I knew that I had done my very best. There wasn’t a better answer for any of the questions I was asked, there was nothing I should have said but didn’t… none of that. I went into it, believing that I could succeed at this job if hired, but I was also willing to be honest with the board, and admit where I had shortcomings. They told me that they didn’t feel comfortable hiring me for the position I had applied for because they were looking for someone who had more experience, something that was beyond my control. BUT! They wanted to offer me a different job but need to make sure that they have an open slot. So I will know in about two weeks if I have a new job. 🙂
Also, I talked with the Boss yesterday to tell him how it went, and he said that he had passed my name off to a friend of his who is recruiting for a different unit. So who knows! I could be getting even more job offers!!
This is has been an awesome experience, and has seriously made me feel so much more confident about myself and my abilities. I didn’t get discouraged when they told me no, because I knew that it was probably best that I didn’t get that job. And Dan has be incredibly supportive through all of this. We found out that if I move to D.C. it is very likely that he will get moved there too, which has helped. And we’re so excited to see what adventures are next in our future. 🙂
