Interview....

Happy Monday Everyone!!!

I have an interview at a firm on Wednesday. Please wish me well and keep me in your thoughts. The job means a nice six-figure salary and I will no longer have to work two jobs. I put off posting it here because I wanted to tell my family and friends first but I couldn't wait to share the news. I already have employment forms to fill out and my Mom is picking up my suit from the dry cleaners today.

This is also the firm where I decided to travel out of town for the charity networking event a few weeks ago. I hope the investment pans out.

I have to work tonight at Macys. I really appreciate the job but I look forward to having just one job that is both challenging and fulfilling. The schedule got posted on Friday that I was working not just the 4th Saturday in a row but also Saturday and Sunday next weekend, which is the second holiday in a row. I called the counter manager on Sunday and asked her about the rotation and also told her I was getting burned out. In 33 days, I would of only had 2 days off from working in some capacity at the Bank or at the Part-time job...it is too much. Plus, some weeks they have me on for more than 12 hours...more like 20. While I appreciate the extra money, it comes with its own cost. I am finding that I am not willing to pay that cost for too much longer.

So, please keep me in your prayers that I get this position. It's a great firm and I already met some really nice people there just through networking. Plus, the firm is still downtown so I can keep up with my Bank colleagues that I will surely miss.

P.S. I ended up in the Black again for August!!! More to come soon. =)
