Finally, a job interview after 2 months!

  1. Jun 10, 2010 #1
    Well for anyone looking for a job right now I wanted to let them know to not give up all hope. After 2 months and a 100 or so resumes I finally had the oportunity to sit down for an interview. It really went well and my IT background along with my accounting degree make me a really good fit for the position. Hope I make it to the second interview. Everyone wish me luck!!

    Good luck! Is it near your residence so you won't have to relocate (or can at least tolerate the commute)?

    It's about 30 miles from my house but my last job was about 25 so commuting is not that big a deal. Life in sales forces you do a lot of driving so i'm use to it.

    I was in technical/industrial sales for years, and my territory generally encompassed all of New England, and at times, the Eastern half of NY too. When you live in central Maine and a client in central upstate NY needs you there ASAP, it can be hell. Good luck, Ronnin! Don't break a leg, though. That only works if you're in theater.

    Good news, I got to the second interview. Now I get to sit down with the Controller and the President. It's between me and one other bean counter. Hopefully between my skills and natural charm I can win this one!:smile:

    Great news, Ronnin! Skills and charm away!

    That was pretty quick - always a good sign. Good luck.

    Well i'm pretty bummed out about this one. Between the two of us I lost out because the other candidate had "more developed experience" in accounting. My IT skills were a plus but they decided that I was too green to take a chance on I suppose. Thank you to everyone for your kind words. Looks like it's back to the job ads again to start this whole process over again. :cry:
