- This week has been full, but not with crafty stuff. I applied online for a full-time transcription job and there has been a bunch of back and forth between the hiring company and me.
- My eye was twitching every day from stress, after filling out paperwork, sending in my resume, taking tests online, contacting references, etc. Then yesterday I was doing nervous cleaning. I never do that!
- Finally I got the call yesterday that the initial review was done by the employer and an interview was scheduled for this morning. My first phone call was to my hairstylist daughter to have my skunk stripe eradicated.
- Then I went shopping for a top to go with a skirt I bought after last month's job interview. Of course I went home and tried on my outfit and modeled for my husband. Thumbs up!
- What swear word do you say when you put your thumb through your pantyhose while pulling them up?
- Traffic Rant: So the job interview was in Santa Barbara, 35 miles from here, meaning I had to leave an hour early. Much of the freeway drive is only two lanes wide and traffic was crawling. A lady in a BMW first forced her way into my lane, then zoomed off the freeway at the next exit. She re-entered the freeway again about a mile later. RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME. I was consoled by the thought that she didn't gain a thing.
- The interview went well and within half an hour I got a call that the hiring process was escalated to the background check, new hire paperwork, and taking more online tests--these were for personality and behavioral results. There was a lot of focus on my opinions about stealing from an employer, or using/selling illegal drugs at work. For the record, I am thoroughly against both and have done neither.
- If all the checking goes well--and it should, fingers crossed--I could start a new job by the middle of next week. Yay! This would be my view for a lot of the commute:
Well, maybe not this close--but the Pacific Ocean is still viewable about 50% of the drive.
