So the big (and a little dreaded) job interview happened just an hour ago. I have never had a job interview where the employer looks up at you and says, "Hey! You are just what I am looking for! Come work for me today!" Except when I worked at McDonald's in High School and a few of my preschool teaching jobs. Once again, this job had 2 million applicants (at least that what it looked like from the stacks of resumes on the desk). Now I have to play the wait and see game. I'm not sure how the interview went. The guy was really nice. And it was pleasant. But, I have to say that the some of the best interviews I've had (and I've had a few) didn't result employment. That kind of does a number on one's self-esteem. Anyhoo...
It is hard to know how honest to be in an interview. When asked why I was interested in this job I wanted to say "because if I don't get it my family's menu will solely consist of Ramen Noodles" or "my next step involves a sign saying 'will yodel for food' and a random intersection."
I also don't know what to say when explaining my work history. Do you tell a future employer "Yep. I haven't worked much the past few years because I've been trying not to die from heart failure!" And I mean that literally.
Oh, the stresses of being a productive American!
So...I will spend my day trying not to think about it and let God do all the heavy lifting. He is better at it than I am.
