I got the job!!!

I haven't written since last week when I'd been asked to come in for a second interview. I went in for that second interview yesterday.

There were three people sitting around a table; the original interviewer (the head of the study/my new boss), a friendly man and a friendly woman. The man started with questions that were much easier than the first ones I'd had. He just asked me to talk about the plastic surgery project I'd done, and some of the other work experience I'd had. These kinds of questions allowed me to speak with animation about a project that I'd truly enjoyed. Bonus. At one point he said, "you will be asking very busy people for their time. Are you a persistent person? How will you handle that?" I said, "Well, I have a very endearing smile... " and everyone laughed. I had them laughing up a storm. They loved it.

The second woman asked a few questions too.

Then I had a chance to ask some questions. I had asked most of the questions I'd had during the first interview so didn't have as many good ones this time around. But what I did end off with was, "Is there any skill or experience that I am lacking or that concerns you that I can address?" They all shrugged and said no.

I walked out of there after only 25 minutes and felt good about the atmosphere in the room but still uncertain.

Until I got a call from an unfamiliar number at 9am this morning. "I have some good news for you," she said. "That is fantastic news," I responded.

I have a horshoe up my bum. That's the only explanation. Oh, except for my Peace Boat failure. Whatever, man.

Great success!
