I feel like a trained dog tonight....

Recently, I had a call quite out of the blue about a job with a very well respected company that happens to be literally across the street from where I live. Like I wasn't gonna BITE!

Had a phone interview with the recruiter a couple of weeks ago and today was my first "round" of real interviews. I had to take the day off from work because the timing was just screwy... First interview was at 7 AM -- a "would be" peer called from London. That went well, I think, despite the fact that Elvis was trying to get my attention the entire time! I walked outside (to get away from the dog) just as a helicopter came flying over! Nice!

This afternoon, I interviewed with the hiring manager and I had to take a "writing sample" test thingie. I'm so glad they warned me about that ahead of time...wait, they didn't! LOL Then, back to the recruiter's office so she could talk salary and benefits with me. I still have one more interview scheduled...on Friday morning. I am really intrigued by this potential new challenge in my life... My current boss is gonna be so pissed when I tell her I have another "appointment" on Friday morning. And, I really hope I'm not getting the run around....

BTW...the dog in the pic...is NOT a trained dog! Hehehe!!

Can we say RUN AROUND? Tis OKies, though. I was kinda surprised the wanted to interview me for that postion in the first place. I have never worked on the institutional side of investments...my background is strictly retail! Off to find the next opportunity!
