Interview Day

So I have an interview today. Did I mention that I'd applied for one of our open desktop tech positions? Yeah. I did the phone interview with my boss' boss (who would be my boss) last Thursday, and did the technical test that evening with The Manager. I know I did really well on the practical simulation, the written was okay. But from what I gather, most people don't usually get all of it 100% right. So that's good, right?

So. Interview. I meet with my boss, my boss' boss and several of the current desktop techs at 10:45 for a first interview. Then I meet with the three reps from the School of Business...the Business School desktop tech is the position I'm currently interviewing for. (there are three open positions...and from what I can tell from various little things, I'm fairly sure that the boss' boss really wants me for one of the positions) After that I meet with the boss' boss' boss. (yeah, confusing, I know...you should hear me explain it on the phone) But I'm not too worried about that...she really likes me. Everyone in my department really likes me...our CIO likes me (he invited me out to dinner with him and the bf the other day, but I had too much studying/practicing to do for my conducting class...he said we'd do it another time)

So, yeah. Interview. I'm excited and nervous. The bf and I went to Kohl's last night because I wanted to buy a long sleeved black button down top. I ended up with a long sleeved black button down top AND a pair of nice, dark gray pants. The bf paid for part of it, which was super sweet. Because even though the pants WERE on sale, they were still a good $50 and I wouldn't have bought them...and he knew it. I also opened a Kohl's account and got 30% off, which was nice. I have to go back and finish paying that off. They only take cash or checks to pay off accounts like that. I used the cash the bf gave me, and then will have to swing by later this week next time I'm down there.

So I've got a cute new outfit, I'm going to wear my black ballet flats. I'm excited, and slightly nervous. I'm going to have my benefits either way (they just switched me to benefits, I'm so excited!) And if I get a desktop position, I get a raise. So it's kind of win-win no matter what happens. I'll update again after the interview(s), but right now I've got to get to work.
