I survived!

 So today was the interview for the potential new job. The interview whose time got changed three fucking times before they finally settled on 3:30pm. My God, I was so nervous at 3:25pm, I was seriously beginning to wonder if I was going to have to use the trash can in the empty conference room to throw up before they called in. 

It wasn't wonderful but I didn't bomb it, I don't think. There were a couple of questions that I just couldn't come up with an answer to, mostly owning to the fact that they were at the end of the interview when I'd already thrown everything I had out there. :shrug:

I don't think I got it. There were two positions and we ended up with thirteen applicants, nearly all of whom have more experience than myself. But it's all right. I know a lot of times, people will say, "It's all right" in a position like this when what they're really thinking is "Holy Shit, I wanted that so bad and I didn't get it and I feel like I'm about to die from disappointment!!!" but amazingly enough, it really is okay. 

I didn't bomb the interview and yes, I want the job, but it's not like I hate where I'm at now, because I don't. I love the job I'm doing and we're about to get 15 new trainees . Quite honestly, I'm one of the major resources on the team and my manager was willing to let me go so as not to hold me back, but it would really put her in a tough position if I weren't there when the training class is through, to buddy some of the new people. 

I guess really? Either way I'm happy. If I'm not meant to get this position, I won't and I know something else will come along one day that will let me advance in the company. All I have to do is keep looking. In the meantime, I'll do the best I can with what I have and be grateful because I honestly couldn't expect to make anywhere near what I make now, anywhere else in this area, let alone be as happy to go to work as I am every day. 

That right there is enough to make for a pretty good day, I think!

good for you, and very good attitude! (and if you don't get the job, can you still take some of those online courses you mentioned to ramp up your skills?)

Actually, yes. I talked with my manager this morning and, assuming they don't hire me for this job, I'm going to be able to start out on an intermediate course for microsoft Excel. They also have an offering for Access that I think I'm going to do later, as that's another program that's used quite a bit.

They also have a course for Visual Basic listed in the same area, but I don't even know what Visual Basic is, so I think I'll have to hold off on that one. :G:
