Re: Opportunity Strikes Anonymouslyadd!

Anon, here's how I would look at it: If he is willing to hire you on a part time basis and temporarily work around your school schedule, go for it, if you really want this job. Everything will work out. If he wants you to work for him and you want to work for him, school, the paper and the other things will all work out one way or another.

It's always good to have a plan in place with regards to managing your schedule and previous commitments. Just don't over-think it too much just yet. Talk to him tomorrow and go over your current work/school situation. You'll be able to figure things out better after your interview and after your event.

Peri's right, also. Stick with the 10:00 time. The interview probably won't last too long. You'll still be able to get to the event and not miss anything too terribly important.

You are going to be GREAT tomorrow!!

Remember, you are where you are supposed to be right now.

Just say you need to talk to your partner.. Your partner can be a cat or fish! Never said it had to talk back

Re: Opportunity Strikes Anonymouslyadd!

You'll be great, Anony!

Don't forget to bring a list of questions to ask -- you can keep it in your pocket, but you'll have it in case you get the dreaded, "Anything else?" question and your mind goes blank...

Re: Opportunity Strikes Anonymouslyadd!

I got the job and everything I wanted. I can't describe the feeling of comfort and confidence I had after the interview. I feel very comfortable with the idea of working with this agency. I want to scream with joy and dance on the top of a mountain. More details to come.

Note to my Forum friends:

For those who have been behind me, whom I'm so grateful to know, I send to you a sincere thank you.

With much love,

Anon

Re: Opportunity Strikes Anonymouslyadd!

This calls for a celebration! Strike up the band!

[dances a jig, then trips over two left feet]

[pops cork on champagne -- whoops, sorry 'bout your eye!]

[sings "Happy Workday To You"]

[raises a chocolate malted (made with the tummy-friendly liquid of your choice)]



Here's a toast to your new job, to great opportunities and fresh starts, to believing in yourself, and to knowing you have friends supporting your efforts!
