Maggie, the eternal optimist, just had a great call with a recruiter this week. I was pinged on a job that is related to my profession and sounds great. I would be the market leader for a company expanding into my neck of the woods. The recruiter loved me and said she was only presenting 3 candidates — of course, that could mean just 3 for the first round, but I want to believe that it’s only 3 period.
Round Two will be a phone interview with the boss and then a trip to their HQ for a formal interview. It’s a cool company with some really, really smart people running it. I gulped as I read their bios.
I also found a local job in my field and applied to that. The HR computer bot rejected me, but I am undeterred. I’m revamping my resume and sending it to the local decision-maker. Then I’ll have a buddy who knows him put in a good word for me.
The tricky part of this job search is to keep Maggie & Co hobbling along generating income so I can stay afloat as I pivot to something new. I think I can, I think I can, I think I can…..
Now I’m thinking interview suits, etc……
