Had a good job interview… for a change.

Oy!

I thought I was the only person who added ‘Batman’ on the end of a statement when I was trying to accentuate the statement.

I had a job interview over Skype this afternoon. It was with an Architectural Design firm and I think that it went really well.

It started off on a bit of a funny note. I’ve been dealing with a woman at the firm who has been arranging the interviews for the CEO. When she called me on skype prior to the CEO walking in she was immediately startled and said ‘Holy Blue Eyes Batman!’

I laughed. I also said ‘Sorry’. I’m not sure why I said that. I just chalk it up to being Canadian. I’ve gotten reactions from people about my eyes for my entire life. It’s not really anything new for me. And I genuinely do think I startled her. I can’t imagine what it’s like to see my face as big as a wall.

She said ‘Are you wearing contacts?’

‘Nope, this is my natural eye colour,’ I said.

She apologized to me several times for commenting on my eyes (I think she felt really awful about her reaction), and then she told me she needed to dim the brightness of screen. (She seems like a good person. I bet if I did work there we’d be friends.)

The CEO came in, the interview went really well. I genuinely think they quite liked me. The CEO was laughing and told me that my qualifications were impressive on a few different occasions.

I don’t want to get my hopes up only to get disappointed, but my hopes are up with this one.

Cross your fingers for me, please!

  1. fingers crossed! I have a couple of friends of mine in the full swing job search at the moment, so I get to listen to all the ups and downs and “when they are going to reply to me?!” rants :). Just be patient. It may take a while.

    1. Ahh, yes. Tell them that chocolate helps with that. Chocolate helps with all of my ‘why don’t they like me’ and ‘why are they taking so long’ blues.

      1. Chocolate is the best thing ever if you ask me. Also, I firmly believe that chocolate calories do not count against your daily intake. As for me, I do not count the money spent on chocolate in my “food” section of monthly expenses. I put it to the “leisure and entertainment” section πŸ™‚

      2. I like your style. I should start doing that. I have to get dairy free/gluten free chocolate, so it can be quite pricey. I always just say “Buy it now and worry about it later” but maybe I’ll rearrange the budget! haha

      1. Not yet! I’ve literally been drowning in photos lol. I went down to Laguna Seca over the weekend to shoot the Rolex Monterey Pre-Reunion, and I’m still going though photos!

      1. Aww, just a little role really, it’s mostly your own awesomeness. But thank you and this is really great. I can’t wait for that “I got a job!” Post that I know is coming. AND I remember that feeling after I was out of work nearly 6 months. Fingers still crossed – have a great day.

  2. Congrats on having a positive interview experience! Sorry the HR lady made so many comments about your eyes. I’m sure you’re used to it, but still, it sounds like she was a bit over the top. Good luck!!

    1. I didn’t get some good news. I’m still trying though. I’m hoping luck will strike soon and I’ll get the job I need/want/desire. Or at the very least, one that pays so I don’t have to be broke anymore!

      1. If you ever want to speak with me live, I know you do PR and my background is in the music, film and capital raising business. Let me know if you ever want to brainstorm ideas and I am positive that you will get the perfect GIG!
