I finally have a job interview!!!

After a long dry spell… well since October really… I have a job interview and it is for a job I actually want. Well, after submitting over 50 applications, the statistics had to be good for getting an interview. I am filled with joy… things may actually start to work out after all* and I won’t have to look into selling a kidney on the black market to pay my bills. :smiley:

*My sister in law found a job after being unemployed for 6 months, my best friend is moving here from Chicago to start a new job and now I might actually get a job after being unemployed for nearly 6 months.

Congratulations! That’s excellent news!!!


Congratulations! good luck and knock 'em dead! :slight_smile:

Great news, good luck!!!

I have been going back and forth with e-mail to a job prospect. I think I might get an interview out of them, but it’s hard to say. Some places are just so persnickety about their requirements, it tends to piss me off, but I need to control my emotions.

Well, I just got back from my interview. It was nearly an hour and a half, longer than any other I had been on before. The funny thing was, I was so relaxed, the answers just came to me and I feel like I had a really good response from the people interviewing me. I am usually a bundle of raw nerves during interviews.
They also asked me “when we extend a job offer, how soon would you be able to start” I have never had that asked in an interview… it sounds so darn promising. They said I would be hearing back from them in a few days. :slight_smile: :slight_smile: :slight_smile: :slight_smile: :slight_smile:

That does indeed sound promising! Hooray! Good luck and keep us informed. :slight_smile:

And I was just about to e-mail you to see how things were going…

What would you be doing in this prospective position?

Second that “What will you be doing” question…is your user name a hint as to your fame as a geologist?

Two things: (from personal experience)
[li]Do NOT get all freaked out if they don’t call in 1 day. It’s really easy for me to say, because I’ve done it every time.[/li][li]Don’t stop looking in the meantime. Just because you have one good lead doesn’t mean you shoudl stop pounding the pavement.[/li][/ul]

Good Luck!

The job is for a staff scientist/geologist position at an environmental consulting firm. A friend of mine worked for this company at this office. She recently moved to Arizona and just transferred to another office with the same company. So it is a great company to work for.

I have no intention of giving up looking for work until I get and accept a job offer. Over the last 6 months (well October basically, havent had an interview since then) I have dealt with a few interviews that seemed good, but I didn’t get the job, but I didn’t do well in the interview and I knew it (you know, interviewers are like dogs- they can smell fear & desparation :smiley: ) The rest of the time, I never heard anything back, even after calling to confirm that they received my resume and stuff.

darn… I hit submit instead of preview.

Anyway, I don’t expect to hear anything until at least next week at the earliest. I am keeping my fingers crossed and hopefully this will happen for me whoo hooo!!!

I Got The Job!!! Yay!!!

No more unemployment for me. Thanks for all the luck you guys were sending my way!!

Yay from here too! Go out there and Geolog one for us dopers!

Hmm, That doesn’t quite work. Do that geologist/scientist stuff and make us proud!
