So I had my interview today and to make a long story short, I didn't get the job. The position was for accounts payable. They had already filled the position before they even interviewed us, so that's always fun. It's bittersweet. While I didn't get the position, I could not be happier for the woman they gave it to. This lady has an accounting degree and graduated with honors and was stuck in a receptionist position for 11 years. Yes, that's right E-L-E-V-E-N, count them 11 years! Talk about ludacris! I'm so glad she applied, and that they gave it to HER. My other friend was shocked and appalled that they gave it to her, but my friend will be taking her position and was given a raise. So, yes I'm happy for this lady. She's a sweetheart and has paid the piper. I am kind of sad because I didn't get it, but the CFO that I interviewed with said they'd like to start possibly "grooming" me for other positions. What I hear when they say that is, that they'd like to start training me to cover other people while they're gone and still expect me to do my own job well at the same time. I know my company. That's how they roll. Oh well, never know where your life will lead. Today, I will bloom where I planted.
