This was an interesting past week. I had two interviews on Tuesday, one with the Chief of Staff for the mayor and the other at the local courthouse. The Chief of Staff interview was more of an informational interview since I wasn't actually applying for a specific position. Even so, I got some good advice. The courthouse interview went well, and I remembered to use certain skills that I learned from the leadership conference a couple of weeks ago. However, I knew I blew it when a specific question was asked and I couldn't remember the answer and made one up. It was not a good answer and I immediately kicked myself, but I still couldn't remember the answer so I left it at that. Disappointingly, I didn't get the job. It's a learning experience though, so it's all good.
I was invited to attend a luncheon on Wednesday, so I went thinking maybe I could network a bit. Plus it was free food and hey, who doesn't like that? I didn't get to network quite as much as I might have hoped, but I had a good time and that's all that really matters. The luncheon was more of an awards presentation for various non-profit agencies from all around the state. The agencies each made a short video about what they do, so it was interesting to see what is available here that I wasn't aware of before.
Thursday, I went to a job place that helps people get jobs. I don't really like the program, so I'm not sure if I'll continue on with them or not. I keep telling myself I should try it for a few weeks first, but I think I've talked myself out of it. I do think it's a good program - it's just not for me.
I went to the post office yesterday and got a wonderful package from Kristen which contained several Lush soaps. I could smell them through the cardboard box, and couldn't wait to open it up to smell everything individually. I also got an amazing card from one of the state representatives I worked with at the leadership conference. Lynne sent me an exciting package of goodies recently too, but I've been too lazy to do anything with any of it yet.
This week I'll be volunteering on Saturday. I also plan to go to visit a friend I made from the leadership conference sometime during the week. I invited myself over (because I'm classy like that!) so I could meet her beautiful dogs. What are your plans for the week ahead?
