I have been on the job hunt for a couple of months now.
I have applied for dozens of jobs and finally got a call back yesterday. Next week, I have an interview scheduled with a law firm in downtown Baltimore. I’m excited for this position, I loved working in the legal field and I feel that it is what I do best, professionally speaking.
In the past, I have always “aced” job interviews. Almost every interview I have done, I have been offered the job. Until I met the chiropractor.
I found an ad for a clerical type position in a doctor’s office and was lucky enough to be interviewed. 3 times. The 2nd interview was a working interview, which I felt went well. The 3rd interview was a series of multiple choice tests, 2 of which were timed. The first test was a 200 question personality type ordeal. Why they would want know if I would kill an animal to put it out of it’s misery, I don’t know.
I guess I gave ’em the wrong answer because all I ever got from them was a $15.00 check for the hour I worked. There was nothing with it. Just a check. No rhyme or reason for not hiring me. No explanation. Nothing.
So, I guess I am a little nervous this time. The law office is at the inner harbor and I absolutely love that area. I picture myself walking around in the summer time, during my lunch break, sipping on a java chip frap and watching the sea gulls fly by. See, I told you I was a big loser.
Anyway – I am going to hope for the best.
