Last week I had a second interview…on the phone. I hate phone interviews because I feel the interviewer is just reading off his/her notebook not really paying attention and just waiting to finish so they can really hire the person they intended to hire in the first place. Yet I went through it and it was what I thought it would be. Questions modified from the first interview and with a different person. I’m trying to change my attitude about all this because negativity isn’t going to get me anywhere.
I would love to get back to work. The extra money would be great for our savings, paying down student loans,nice vacations, repairs on our home, and just the relief of knowing if an emergency comes up, we will have the funds. I know that I am fortunate that I’m in this situation instead of struggling to put food on the table. Yet I just want us to be prepared if a situation(my husband losing his job) like that comes up.
Tomorrow I have an interview at another place. After this I am going to hold off looking for a job for a couple of months. My husband and I are planning a road trip to visit family. Though if I do get a job from the past interviews I had, I will chalk it up to fate telling me to forgo mini vacations for a while. Who knows? Maybe I did get that job from that phone interview. It irks me though that I have to go through so many interviews for a PART TIME JOB. You would think they were handing me health insurance and a 401K.
