Guess what I’m smiling about?? Ok I’ll tell you whether you want to know or not; I got the job!!!
I felt confident, prepared, informed, comfortably relaxed and talkative but not in a nervous way.
I dressed totally appropriately in new jeans, ankle boots, a leather look short jacket with a beautiful scarf that matched my jacket and blouse perfectly and had a silver thread through it for a bit of bling. I did a french manicure on my nails and no jewelry. I had prepared a folder for the man interviewing me I picked up a clear plastic folder with 4 pages in it with room for 8 documents. I put my resume first, my references, I picked up my drivers abstract yesterday and that was in there, my National Safety Code certificate, a copy of the news paper article, a page of pictures of my trucks, and the brochure I did up, and my school manuscripts.
I was there 45 minutes early and walked through the door at exactly 4:30. The first thing the interviewer did was look for my resume and couldn’t find it and that’s when I handed him the folder I had done for him. I had worried it might be overkill but it was perfect!!
We talked for over an hour, laughed, talked business, talked future goals, what I want what they want and we all are in agreement. At the end of it he looked at me and said, “So are you sold?” And stood up to shake my hand and as soon as I said, “I am sold” he shook my hand and said “welcome aboard”.
This is so exciting!! A little bit different than what I was doing but I am totally in my element. Wage plus commission, plus the use of a company vehicle, dental, medical, and we have to negotiate some more, we all went away to think about it over night.
I danced out of there!!
Yes!! ^5 to every one!!!
I could cry!!
I really needed this!!!
Come on every body give me a hug!!!
