So here I am, fairly happily ensconced in a job where I’m in charge and have a good staff, dragging down about $75K a year building houses for a public housing agency, vested in the corporation, and somewhat bored out of my mind (hence my post count).
Out of the blue, an opportunity falls in my lap. A guy in my office mentions that his wife’s company (a Native corporation) has just landed an overseas construction contract with the Dept. of State, which happens to be an outfit I am very familiar with, if not too fond of, and that said company is looking for someone who knows the workings and wonders of said department and who is knowledgeable about Africa.
“Well, gee”, says I. Sounds like they’re looking for me. So I drummed up a cover letter and dusted off the resume and sent it on over.
A week went by and suddenly I get a call today saying they are absolutely interested in what I have to offer and would I mind coming in for an interview and teleconference. The guy in my office says they pay somewhere in the neighborhood of $120-150K for the job they are thinking of offering. Holy crap!
This will happen on Monday, so I’ll have the weekend to sweat it out and not get any sleep. Anybody have any relaxation techniques? I’m just hoping I don’t come across as a blithering idiot. Nobody had better come back with “too late”, either! There’s a lot more to this, but I won’t bore you with it.
