A couple of days ago I put a post on Craigslist in the jobs wanted section seeking entry level IT work (it was the post critiqued by dopers. Thanks guys.).
Shortly after that I got a response that I thought was suspicious because all it said was “I’d be interested in chatting with you.”. But I checked out his E-mail address and it was from a close-by (about 30 minutes or so) computer repair shop. Turns out he’s the owner. So he gave his business number and told me to call him.
I called him and he offered an interview which I naturally accepted. He said it’s a, “Here’s a computer, let’s see what you can do with it.” type interview. Also, he asked me on my way down there if I could go to a sign shop and pick up a sign that’s waiting for him. I’m his errand boy, and I’m not even hired yet :D.
I am so nervous right now. Frankly I shouldn’t get my hopes up because past interviews haven’t produced any results, but I want this job badly. And I don’t even know what the pay or hours would be. But it would be a foot in the door to an IT career, which is something that I’ve been wanting badly for a while now. And I just plain need a job.
So cross your fingers, and if you’re religious then say a prayer. And then don’t be surprised when I post back that I didn’t get the job :eek:. Just kidding…sort of.
