When it Rains, it Pours...
Okay, first of all, what's up with all this spam crap I'm getting all of a sudden? I don't know what happened!!!! SPAM IS THE DEVIL!!!
Anyhow, I digress...
So, on the job front news, I got two more nibbles in addition to the one I had the other day that have both materialized into interviews!
Job #1 - Marketing Specialist for a commercial realty firm in Downtown Dallas. It was voted one of the best places to work by Dallas Business Journal
. This one is Monday at 3 pm. Not sure about it since it is, of course, about a 60-mile roundtrip drive from my house, and I'm not even sure I can afford the gas. But, I need the interview practice, so I'll go and check it out. I'll say right now, though, that it will take A LOT to get me to drive all the way downtown again.
Job #2 - Marketing Associate for a manufacturing company located about 20 minutes from where I live. I go to this interview Tuesday at 2 pm. The Marketing Manager sounded extremely
nice on the phone and the job description sounds like it would be a fun opportunity--lots of different hats to wear, since I get bored easily.
Job #3 - This was the initial telephone interview with Human Resources for a Web Merchandiser for a very well-known watch/accessories company. What sounded really interesting about this job is that there is lots of room for growth. The person who was in this job previously was promoted out of it, so they encourage internal growth and don't expect you to stay in a certain position or division of the company unless it's absolutely the best fit for you. I expressed great interest in this one over the phone and my resume was passed to the hiring manager, and if they're interested I will be contacted for a face-to-face interview. So far I haven't heard anything, but I would like to have a shot at this one.
So, I guess we'll see how it goes! I have to admit, though, that I'm really enjoying this little vacation......
