I couldn't help myself and had to blog this. I've been looking for a new job, one that preferably provides health insurance because the costs of IF diagnosis and treatment are astronomical if you're not covered.
Several weeks ago I applied at a local Women's Clinic (which happens to have the #3 in the nation Fertility Clinic, WOW) for a Communications/Outreach position. It is a part time position but still has health coverage which is fantastic! I could work in Real Estate (in more of an administrative/accounting capacity) and still help my mom, and also have this position that sounds like something in which I could really apply my degree in Communications. It would be the best of both worlds!
I received a phone call today for a phone interview and had called the woman right back to say that I was available anytime, well she called back minutes later and anytime meant right then! I think I did well, although I know I spoke pretty fast because she kind of threw me for a loop. I know I said something stupid when she asked me about why I wanted to work there, something about how I would have loved to be a nurse if I could stand the sight of blood,(oh, yes I actually said that), but I'm pretty sure that was the only stupid thing I said. Hopefully she didn't notice that comment... ugh. But they're calling 5-7 candidates back on Thurs/Fri for in house interviews.
At the moment I'm dissecting my interview, and dwelling on the things I may have said wrong. However, she did say I had a fantastic phone presence, but maybe she said that to everyone...
Now I can focus on this job possibility until I get a call back and maybe won't stress so much about my first IF appointment on Monday.
Think/pray/send good job vibes to me!
