So guess what!?! I got the job!!

Way back in August I applied for the "real" position for where I am a contract employee. Last Monday I had a phone interview where I just felt like a blubbering idiot. It's probably a good thing that my current boss was one of the interviewers, and I think had a say into who they wanted to hire. I probably wasn't really all that bad.  I know for the next time, if I ever have to do that again, to write down the questions so I can make sure and answer it all. It's hard to remember a long multi-part question and come up with an answer all in your head.

Friday Scott and I had the day off work so we could go to the Yosemite Half Marathon. We didn't have to be there super early so we went to town to get a hair cut, lunch, car wash, etc and when we were driving home I got a call from Hawaii. I was like I don't know anyone in Hawaii so I declined the call. Then I got a voice mail from the HR lady. I was like OMG it's for the JOB and I declined the call! I called back and it went to voice mail and then after calling back a couple more times the gal finally answered and told me I got the position. Now I'm just waiting for the other HR person to call me back with the next step.

So I will be doing pretty much the same job but now I'll be a federal employee and get all the good benefits. One bad thing is that I will be working full time instead of part time (I did 6.5 hours a day) so I won't be able to pick the kids up from the bus unless I go into work earlier (which MIGHT be a good option).

Anyhow, that's my super excitement going on right now. That was a great way to start our little mini race vacation weekend!Pin It
