Interviewy and Jobby stuff

Does anyone like to interview?? I think it's just plain hard. First to get them in the first place, and then to actually do them! I had three in the last 1 1/2 weeks. Two in person, one over the phone. There's such a mix of emotions, even when you know your stuff. Figuring out what to wear (really not something I love!), making sure I know where to go, making print-offs of work samples (going through stuff and figuring out what makes sense to bring)... yuck, yuck, yuck! On the drive to both of the in-person ones I had to keep reminding myself to BREATHE. I would hold my breath and then make myself more nervous.

And then there's this whole beautiful (mostly!) hiatus I've been on. It's good and hard and crazy to think about jumping back into the workplace full-time. In so many ways it will be good. I'm just grateful for the slower time as well.

And... I got a call this morning with a job offer - a Training Manager job with a local healthcare organization (well, mostly local. They have sites in a few other states as well). They want to know if I can get all my stuff in and start MONDAY! Eeeeh!

So I'm going for it. I can't get over the timing. Saturday is my last official day with ThedaCare (I've continued to do mini-projects for them for maybe 5-10 hours a week). Sunday is our six month anniversary.

I'm thankful and bewildered and excited and looking forward to the "getting to know ya" part of the new job to be over. I'm hoping I hit my stride sooner rather than later - we'll see!
