So I'm back home, sitting in my jammies, just sent the thank you notes to my two interviewers. I was prepared, I looked good. I was early to the interview and chatted for a while with one of the interviewers I had talked to on the phone. I felt like we had a really great connection, at the phone interview and in person.
Turns out he is just an exceptionally kind man-I heard it from the receptionist. Just a really great guy.
The other person I interviewed with was the woman VP. I felt like I didn't give her the answers she wanted to hear and that I came up short in her book. We spent 1/2 hour meeting with the 3 of us, then another 45 minutes with the man and I one on one. The VP did come out to shake my hand when I left and thanked me for coming. The man-who is the "Director of Sales Experience" (isn't that a great title) I totally enjoyed meeting and would really like to work with. I learned a lot more about the job, and it's even better than I originally thought.
I also learned that there are 6 candidates and that a decision will be made in
I left with real mixed feelings on how it went, great with the "director of sales experience", not so great with the vp. The position reports to both people. Today's spark thought was about believing in yourself, and that you never know which nut is going to grow into a tree. I'm praying this is my tree.
On a less positive note, my sister and her partner are flying in this eve to see my mom for a week. I called her on Monday and told her that our mother's condition was rapidly deteriorating and that I thought that she should come soon. She didn't answer her phone-she screens her calls-and texted me back that she would come. Thru our mutual friend she has said that she just can't bear to speak with me...my peace flag efforts failed and that is what it is. I really hate it when she is even in my town-the tension is so thick-I have to watch my eating, I really stuff my mouth when she is in town.
So keep the prayers coming for your spark buddy here. Let's hope for some good news soon!
