Because I love my black heels....

Also, today I went to my 997th interview. It's pretty much the only thing that gets me dressed up in more than my pajamas these days. Which is good. Mmhmm.... But what is up with these double interviews? Is it just me? Probably. In every single job I've interviewed for they've said "Okay great, well, we'll let you know in a few days if we'd like you to come in for a second interview". Greatly prolonging this 'ole job hunt of mine. And you know, at first I thought okay, great, they're being thorough. Obviously this company wants to make sure they hire the right person. But um...I've been on SEVERAL of these "second interviews" and it's been pretty clear that...there's nothing new to ask, nothing new to offer.

"So....well....I guess I already asked you that last time..."

"Well? Any questions you can think of?" Uh, no, I asked them LAST time....

"Well.....I guess that's all....any questions you have? No? Okay, well, thank you, we'll let you know in three years...bla bla bla bla bla bla"

That's pretty much the gist of these second interviews aka time-wasters. All I can say is, I hope all of these awkward moments of humming and hawing produces one FABULOUS job. With lots of moolah. And maybe a fun perk or two. A girl can dream, right?

My last job search lasted from Feb to August '06. I never thought it would take so long to find worthy employment. Luckily, I landed at a pretty fantastic company (even if the stress is blinding on some days).

I hate double-interviews as well. But I'm sure you knocked 'em over with your superior style and grace!

Ugh, I hope so! :) This is my second attempt at finding a job, my first being when I lived in Oregon. Which took me a good oh, 5 mths. :) I just hope it's not at long this time! :)
