Just kidding! There’s no verdict yet. Quick recap: on Wednesday I
sat an exam had a Mega Job Interview and they said I’d maybe have an answer by the end of the week.
It is Monday. I do not have an answer.
I have been trembly like a rabbit, one who sits exams and then has to
impatiently wait her exam results. Only in this case the exams are Interviews and the Results are gainful employment. I could drag out this comparison for another street or two, but won’t. I’m too anxious. Half of today I’ve been imagining my phone brightening with a text or a call, only to realize it was a trick of the light. Several times I have heard a mobile phone nearby go off and pounce on mine, hopeful even as the rational part tells me I never changed my ringtone.
My mobile has not left my side, or my sight.
I’m rationalizing this out as much as I can: the coach with whom I interviewed seemed to like me. So did her colleague. If the company wanted to say no, surely they would have done so already? Does this mean they are debating whether or not to write up a contract for me? The other day I was very positive, but it’s getting a bit difficult to keep a grip on that.
On the bright side, I do have two interviews this week. Should this one fall through I have a couple of potential back-up plans.
