And now for some good news…

I got an interview at one of the high schools I applied for! The regular one I had written off because they kept failing to get back to me. They finally viewed my application over the weekend! WTAF?!

Of course the only two times available are both during a really important PTA meeting this Thursday. It’s frustrating, but there is nothing I can do. This week is also super busy with long meetings after work each day so I won’t have nearly as much time to prepare as I would have liked, but I will do my best. We’ll see what happens.

I have a friend who interviewed this year for a new position and we have talked about all the topics they will probably bring up. I’m so glad I already reached out to her because I would NOT have been prepared to address some of these things eloquently, and I would not have had time to meet with her this week. I’m sure there will be some questions I will be unprepared for, but that number will be much lower, thanks to her. So, so grateful.

I probably won’t be writing much before Thursday, because I should be using my time to prepare. I’ll let you all know how it goes on Friday.

Wish me luck!

{And please don’t think I am getting ahead of myself with excitement. Mostly I’m just relieved that my resume and coverletters warranted an interview. There are a ton on unknowns with this position, so many that I might not even accept it if it’s offered. I am just heartened to have the opportunity to interview. We’ll see where it all goes…}

{{And thank you all for your kind thoughts on yesterday’s post. They really meant a lot to me.}}

  1. This is so exciting! As long as you are getting interviews, you can get a job. Maybe not this one, but you know you’re doing something g right!

  2. Holding hope for you and sending best wishes. Interviews are learning experiences: figure out what they want and if it agrees with what you want. Lots of faith in you here!

  3. SO cheering for you today! Every interview is a learning opportunity ~~ for you about them as well as vice versa. Glad you get to do this.

  4. I’m sorry I haven’t replied to your text, but I was in a conference all day yesterday and just got a chance to sit at my computer to write this. I’m so excited that you got a call – and wishing you the best of luck today. Stay calm & composed & upbeat & fun – basically, your normal self – and you’ll crush it. πŸ™‚
