Interviews…

My interviews got rescheduled for today. I actually have another interview tomorrow and Wednesday. Since I am already employed in the same building and it’s the holiday season, they were able to spread it out. I have a weird feeling about the interviews. I got the impression that they were pleased with my work experience but not pleased that I wouldn’t be able to hit the ground running. I am not sure what they really expect. I just graduated from law school in May and I just got sworn in last month. While I won’t be able to head a project right away, I can certainly contribute. Plus, I don’t care who you are, if you aren’t already working in the organization, you aren’t going to hit the ground running. You have to get acclimated to the organization and how it works. While I already knew that I wasn’t qualified for the senior position, I am still hopeful that they will consider me for the junior position.

This is my last ditch effort to remain with the bank. If they do not offer me the position, I will begin applying heavily elsewhere.

Hope it goes well. I think it would be a good idea to start getting your resume out elsewhere anyway instead of waiting on them, though.

I agree. I can send them out now that the new year is here. I didn't have any vacation or sick days left at work so I couldn't take off to interview. Next year is a different story when I actually have vacation days again.

Hey there, good luck with whatever you choose to do. I agree with strange bird about focusing outside of your current employer.

I wouldn't worry too much about your current job. They would be pushing you to do more even if you hit the ground running. Their objective is to get the most out of you while you are still a cheap salary. Keep pressing on sooner or later you will pick it up and be moving along fine.

I wish you the best of luck with your job interviews. However, I would keep your options open and apply for other positions. Even if you are offered a job at the bank, you would be able to negotiate your salary because you have othef offers.
