Adventures in job hunting: a hopeful phone interview.

I had a surprise phone interview this afternoon for a job that I applied for more than two months ago. I believe the interviewer actually liked me quite a lot. He said that he was calling to take five minutes of my time and actually ended up asking me questions for a half hour.

He mentioned that the company has no issues with hiring someone from out of province if they’re willing to make the commitment to move.

Halle-freaking-luja.

Crossing my fingers and my toes.

    1. I’ve looked into that one but according to redditors, it’s mostly scammers that post ads on there. I checked it out myself and the only people who contacted me were scammers wanting to use google hangout which went against site policy. Unfortunately. Better to market yourself out there and gain your own clients. You also had to bid for jobs.

    2. I’ve never really considered a website like that before. I’ve had a few people ask me for things, but other than that, Freelance isn’t something I’ve ever marketed myself for.

      1. Depends on what they ask. =) Interviews are tough because there’s no way to fully prepare for them. Even I, Ms. HR, have struggled with interviews in the past. All you can do is get your basic mental template ready and then think quick on your feet if they throw you a curveball. I do have a resource, I think I sent it to you before. I’ll see if I can find it and forward it in another message.

      2. Thank You for letting me know! I rarely check that email. lol. Only if I’ve been dropping comments on youtube and want to see if people responded. I went and checked now though, so I appreciate the heads up.

  1. Good luck, I’ve been hunting for a job for the last 4 months, submitted around 100 applications and only had 2 phone interviews that fizzled. I keep plugging away though, there is a job out there for me somewhere! I sure hope you have found yours.

  2. That sounds great! I am crossing my fingers too.
    That’s somehow funny: I just woke up from a weird dream about a new start and then read your post. I really hope this is indeed a new start for you.

    Even getting a rejection letter for an internship is proving to be a challenge..

      1. My final assignments are due on the 10th of February!
        I tried to get internships back in September when I first moved to Sydney and didn’t even get a rejection letter.
        I’m both excited and terrified to start the job search again haha.

      2. You’ll do just fine! Just remember resilience is key!! I know I can make it sound kind of shitty based off the things I write on this blog, but the truth is, as long as you keep going you’ll land right where you belong!
