...I donīt want to say that I need prayers, because itīs "just" a job I am hoping for but all you Spark Friends; send me your best wishes for tomorrow when I go to a job interview. It is as a editor for a business supplement (?) for one of our region newspaper and it fits me like a glove...I do have the qualifications, I am the right person for it.
But that is not why I so desperately want it.
I want it because I have been selfemployed for 25 years and for the moment I canīt handle that very well. I can handle the profession - to write articles and give lectures, but I am to chaotic to advertise myself and do the paperwork. Business is slow and although I am really good at living on a low budget I canīt live on no budget at all.
It would be a dream to be employed and get a paycheck every month. To collect points for my retirement (as we do in Sweden) to have a guaranteed wage even if I get sick, to have five weeks payed vacation... to be able to set up a budget and work towards a financial goal.
I would also love to have colleagues to work with and to be in a team that had a mission - as a freelance I just do fragmentary effort and Iīd like to be the part of a long term goal together...
I have a really, really good chance of getting this job, but I am of course not the only person they interview. So I need luck in my favor to, wish me luck!
