Thoughts on Second Interview…

The second interview yesterday went very well and I believe that I will get an offer. The good thing is that the Bank is looking to hire 3 Consultants in that area so my chances improve significantly. This would be a great move for me in terms of moving my career along.

I had a great day yesterday starting out with the good interview and followed up with the last Black History Event for the month at the Bank. There was a ceremony where educational and career achievements for African American workers at the Bank were recognized and celebrated. I got recognized for getting my law degree and passing the bar exam.

At the event, I was able to network and talk to a lot of people including the CEO of the bank (I had to pinch myself) and several other member of the Executive team. It was such a tremendous opportunity and one of the reasons why I love working for my Bank in particular. Where I work, we are a large regional bank with a close feel that I don’t think you get at other larger international banks. This is just one of the many reasons why I want to stay there because I can see myself getting the opportunity to advance. It amazes me also how much more comfortable I am with networking and meeting people. Two years ago, I would have broken into a cold sweat and quickly walked from the room hoping nobody noticed.

I will keep you posted on how things turn out. When all goes well, I should be transitioning from my position by the end of March. Either way, I feel like things will be getting better for me and soon.
