Well, the interview this morning went well. So well that I received a job offer that was very generous at 5:30 this afternoon. I accepted their offer a couple of hours ago. I guess that bridge I mentioned crossing Saturday morning is upon me. I’ll let the major electronics retailer know in the morning what happened and see how mad the folks there are at me.
I had a feeling something like this would happen. I’ve been unemployed since December of last year and while I’ve been looking for employment I’ve been more serious about looking for work for myself. It’s only been in the last month that I’ve come to grips with the fact that self-employment just isn’t working for me and gotten real serious with my job search.
The results are now coming in. This morning I had a phone interview with a poutry processing equipment company, just before I left for the interview with the company I accepted the job with. When I got back I had a recruiter wanting me to resubmit my resume to them with my salary requirements. When it rains it pours. I don’t know if it’s the economy improving or just my getting serious in the way I write my cover letters and the custom resumes I’m sending out.
