Gotta admit, I am a little stunned by this one.
Sent out almost a dozen job queries yesterday, and when I checked the work-search e-mail this morning, there was a request for an interview from the exectuive director of the agency I am applying to.
Time from my e-mail to the interview request? 3 hours, 45 minutes. I am amazed.
It’s in Albany, better than an hour away, but I am not ruling anything out right now. It’s teaching job-search skills and helping find jobs for parolees and recovering drug addicts. I developed a lot of the necessary skills over the last seven months doing unemployment stuff.
The executive director was a little concerned about the commute, but I assured her I was interested. It’s a good deal more than I was making, so that may make a difference, too.
Conveniently, it’s an 11 a.m. interview, and I am going to meet a friend for pancakes and German food for lunch at noon.
