Just got a phone call from a lad who is responding to my resume! Happy day!!! I was starting to doubt all of my previous job experience and the loads of crap on my resume that say why I'm a worthwhile individual and why you should hire me. Well I got a bite!
Drumroll please....it's an office manager job at....one more drumroll because you'll never believe it...a karate studio! haha Not even joking. I think he likes me because I have an interview with him tomorrow.
I learned my lesson from previous job interviews. Have you ever been asked: How much would you like to get paid? I do not like that question because years ago I had this mental game of, "What do I say? If I say a number that's too high, he'll think he can't afford me. If I say a number that's too low, he'll think I don't value myself or I'm not a good employee or something." Well undervaluing myself is not something that I will be doing! I told him what I'd like to get paid after our conversation and he said, "That's probably doable. Especially considering your experience." Yeah baby!!
Down side: it's only 15-20 hours a week. However, it's all evening hours so I could probably find a second job for the daytime which...is one of my favorite things. I love working two jobs at once.
Also welcome to a conversation with my roommate and I this evening:
Roommate: You're only serious like 10 percent of the time.
Me: PLUS 92 percent of the time.
Roommate: Wow. I'm so glad you're in statistics.
Me: haha Yeah. Me too.
