This time around I have something concrete. I was going to wait for the papers to arrive, but I just can’t. As you may recall from this post , I was invited into one firm for a second interview, this in itself was a good sign. The interview was not with the manager of the firm, but instead it was with their IT person, I didn’t think much of that, until my walk home when I was analyzing the interview, and it struck me that I was told that the business was looking for an office assistant/IT person, perhaps not in those exact words, and certainly not as clearly as that. I went home feeling quietly confident.
Just before I went to sleep this afternoon my mobile rang twice although I didn’t notice right away as it was on silent alert, when I checked my voicemail I discovered that the manager was ringing me and said he would ring back around 4PM with a couple more questions. As I was going to have a sleep I turned on the ringer on the phone so it would wake me up when I got a call, sure enough I got a call at 4PM (well, 4:03 actually…), this was the manager offering me the position (with a couple question about how I thought the morning interview went).
I’m going to preempt any non-disclosure agreements that may appear in the paperwork by ending the description of events there and give you some other information instead.
The business which has decided to employ me is *Removed at request of employer*, and I thank them for doing so.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who supported me through this change in circumstances, your support really helped my confidence going into the interviews, and for that I thank you all.
