I've been a busy little bee! I had a phone interview with an insurance company on Friday. I don't understand the whole phone interviewing thing. I mean I guess that's how they start to weed people out, but it just seems so impersonal to me. And what is up with the Human Resources questions? Who the hell comes up with these stupid questions and what on earth do they have to do with getting a job? I learned in school that they ask you these questions to try and catch you off gaurd and they're basically looking to see how you react.
I thought that I did really bad. I was unsure about how to answer her questions. The only answers that I could come up with involved my experience in the restaurant business, bc that's all the experience I've ever had. She told me that she appreciated my time and that she'd be handing her notes over to her boss, and they'd get in touch with me in a few days if I was being moved on to the next step. After I hung up I kinda shrugged my shoulders and figured I'd never hear from "Katie" again. I chalked it up to experience and laughed about it with the girls at the office. I went on with my day.
To my utter surprise, when I got home from work that night there was actually a message from Katie on my machine. She said that she reviewed her notes with her boss and she'd like for me to come in for a face-to-face interview. Holy freaking shit! I swear I did a little happy dance right there in my living room. My poor cat probably thought I was having a seizure!
Things are starting to really move forward. I also have another interview scheduled this week with a billing company. I can't believe that this could actually happen for me. I am so excited but scared at the same time. I guess it's a healthy fear. I definately am not gonna let it freeze me, there's just no way that I will allow myself to chicken out. I refuse to wait on tables for the rest of my life!
So fellow bloggers, I'd like to thank you all for your wonderful comments and support. It makes me feel good knowing there are people out there who are rooting for me! It seems kinda weird that I've never even met you, but somehow I "know" each and every one of you! I hope all is going well for you too!
I'm probably gonna be a bad poster for the next 6 weeks or so, but I promise to keep you guys up-to-date with any disgruntled customers I happen to come across. I always have time to write about the assholes I deal with on a day to day basis! Till then enjoy yourselves!
